Use Bottle Caps as Molds

Press air drying clay into bottle caps and smooth with a blunt knife or tool. The clay will shrink as it dries (may take a few days, especially in wet weather) and should easily fall out of the bottle cap mold when dry (you can coax it out with a toothpick if needed)


You can lightly sand the molded clay, drill a hole into it, paint it, etc. Use for beads and other crafts.

I love beads, but unfortunately, they are out of style for wearing, and the larger ones are too heavy for much of anything. What do you make them into?
