When I saw my first lace doily dish, I so wanted one, but mainly I wanted to make one. First I needed a pretty lace doily. You know those are hard to come by, so I got out thread and my tatting shuttles and made a couple of doilies (that took over a month). They turned out very pretty and were a great change from all the crocheting I have been doing. Then I got out my OLD polymer clay. I wasn’t worried. I know how to reconstitute or soften, dried out polymer clay. So after 4 weeks of preparations, I was finally able to get these dishes made, and this is how I did it.
