Round jars with screw tight lids
- You can transform any jars with screw tight lids into salt and pepper shakers by punching holes in them with a hammer and awl. I chose round jars so they would look like Christmas ornament balls.
- Sheet Red Glitter through the clay conditioning machine on the thickest setting. Make sheet that is long enough to wrap around one of the jars and wide enough to cover it top to bottom.
- Cut a straight edge along one of the short ends. Wrap the clay all the way around the jar and trim the end to form a neat seam. Smooth the seam with your fingers.
- Gently form the clay to the shape of the jar working toward the bottom.
- Bend the clay around the bottom edge of the jar.
- Use a circle cutter to trim the edge of the clay so that it looks neat on the bottom. Remove excess clay and smooth the edge with your fingers.
- Gently form the clay to the shape of the jar working toward the top.
- Trim away excess clay.
- Roll Frost White Glitter into very skinny strings. Cut off 1” and 2” lengths.
- Taper the ends of the white pieces and form curly-qs. Start by adding the decorations in a N, S, E, W pattern.
- Add more and more curly-qs as you like all around the shaker. Lightly press the decorations on so that they attach to the red clay but don’t smash them.
- Add tiny pearls of white with the small Etch’n Pearl tool. Repeat the process on the second jar with green background clay instead of red to make a set of shakers. Bake the shakers at 275 for
30 minutes. Fill with salt & pepper when they are completely cool.
