Sculpey clay and glaze, paint and paintbrushes are all available from Spotlight, spotlight.co.nz.

Place the oblong in between two sheets of baking paper and roll out with the rolling pin (the length should be around 10 - 15cm). 

Curl the clay into a ring and bake according to packet instructions (around 10 minutes in an 150 degree celsius oven). 

Allow the clay to cool. 

Paint with your watered down paint to produce a water-coloured effect. Allow to dry.

Use the ink pen for the crosses. 

Finish with the glaze and allow this to dry completely before using the rings.
