Need to work on the foil, so as not to stain the surface. Pre-pour water into the bowl to moisten hands from time to time. Sculpting clay aroma lamps will remind you to work with clay, so that even children can cope with this task.
The first step is to mold the bowl. Its height should be about 10 centimeters. From the side you need to cut a hole into which we will insert a candle.
You can sculpt from a single solid piece or you can roll the clay into flagella and stack them on each other. If you choose the second method, from time to time, dip your hand into the water to hold the parts together.
Next, take a separate piece and form a bowl-saucer from it. We will put it on top.Subsequently, it is in it will be water with essential oil. We fix it on the water.
Using a clay knife, we make several patterns in the form of a thread on the lamp or impose additional decorations carved from small pieces of clay. That is, at this stage we decorate our future aroma lamp.
The product is dried in several stages. Leave it "grapple" for about an hour and a half. Then put in the oven at 30 degrees. Every 15 minutes add another temperature of 30 °. When the future aromatic lamp bakes, turn off the oven, but leave the craft inside for another 15 minutes.
Allow the aroma lamp to cool. After 3-4 hours you can paint it, but do not add paint to the bowl, which will be filled with fragrant mixture.
The dried up lamp will be ready to use. You just need to insert a flat bottom candle into it and light it so that your room is fragrant, and you get a session of relaxation or beneficial inhalations with essential oils.
