To make this stylish ceramic hand dish is so easy. Perfect home decor craft from toddler to teen. And crafting moms like me! !!I just adore these decorated hand bowls.
Kids can make a couple of ceramic hand dishes for themselves a couple for yourself, and as gifts…!!! Now is a good time to start making Christmas gifts.
Depending on the color scheme you /your kids choose, it can be used as a decorative bowl to serve after dinner minty’s, or be used as a fanciful soap dish.

You’ll need some white air dry clay like Jovi’s.
If you have no modeling clay tools, no worries, scour around the house for things to make shapes and imprints in your clay. Experimenting with ‘odd’ objects is half the fun of making these hands.
A rolling pin is hand, but a clean recycled bottle will work as well as to flatten your clay.
Acrylic craft paint comes in a million of colors. Tip: set the kids up for this craft on a table with a washable cover over it. Recycle some butter tube lids to mix paint colors and have an assortment of craft brushes ready. Don’t water down the paint if you want vibrant colors. As well, if you add water, you’ll dull the acrylic paint and make it less strong. Better to add white paint instead.
To seal it, you can use either Mod Podge, as Emma did who produced the hands in the picture (shaped after her own hands – cute!), or a proper varnish, which comes in matte and gloss. Go for gloss!
