    I use a low fire clay – cone 06/04 called Steve's White found at Aardvark – it's their Brightest white, excellent for throwing or hand building.

    If you don't have a kiln and want your bowl to be more durable than it's bone-dry unfired state, then I'd suggest using a Non-Fired Clay (No Kiln Required)such as:

    Darwi – White, air drying modeling compound. Modeling clay isn't the greatest, but I think it would be better than having a very fragile unfired bowl.

    Polymer clay can be baked in the oven. You can find oven clay at any craft store. They are usually sold in plastic wrap and come in small bricks. If you want to use the low-fire pottery clay that I use, you'll have to fire it in a kiln. Hope that helps 🙂

    Do you use the Acrylic to paint the bowl after it is formed and dried??? Or when does this stage take place?
