Lotus Flower Bowl


This clay modelling craft uses a kitchen bowl as a base to create a lovely lotus flower bowl. It would make a super trinket bowl, and a perfect gift for the kids to give to friends or family - perhaps for Mother's Day?

Lotus Flower Bowl

You will need:

  • White airdrying clay
  • Pink acrylic paint
  • Varnish (optional)
  • Bowl (as a mould)
  • Clingfilm


Line the bowl that you are using as a mould with cling film.

Lotus flower bowl - covering the mould

Roll out the clay to about 5mm thick.

Cut out petals with a knife and lay them in the bowl to form your flower. Use our photo as a guide.

Lotus flower bowl - shaping our bowl

Dip your finger in water and moisten the clay to seal the joins between the petals and any cracks.

Cut out a small circle of clay and use water to stick to the centre of the flower.

Set aside to dry for at least 24 hours. When the clay feels hard remove from the bowl and leave to dry upside down for at least anouther 24 hours so the base dries out.

Lotus flower bowl - ready to paint

When the clay has completely hardened, paint and varnish the bowl.
