Craft Wiccan offering bowl

An offering bowl can be used for offerings or herbs on your altar, as a candy dish, for offerings to the faerie folk, animals, birds or a very nice gift to put jewery in when you wash dishes. Remember these are very small bowls.

Sculpty or Fimo (found at most craft stores or Wal-Mart)
leaf of desired shape and size
oven proof bowl approximately the size of the leaf
acrylic pain (optional)
acrylic sealer (if you're going to paint it)

On a cookie sheet or tin foil, roll out the Sculpty or Fimo with a rolling pin or flatten with your hand until it is approximately 1/4 - 1/2 inch thick. Smooth.

Press leaf on top of fimo so that an impression is made.

Trim off the excess fimo from around the leaf.

Remove the leaf.

Carefully remove the fimo leaf from the cookie sheet and place in the bowl so that the edges curve upwards.

Bake in the oven according to the direction on the package - usually 200 or 250 degree oven for 20 - 25 minutes.

Allow to cool.

Paint and seal with acrylic, if desired.
