A Möbius Strip is an ancient shape, described in the 1858 by mathematician August Ferdinand Möbius. Essentially, a strip with a half-twist joined at the ends, it has unique mathematical properties – including the fact that it is a continuous loop with only one side and one edge.
This beautiful box, with no two sides alike, uses a texture mat available from PMCC Senior Instructor Marlynda Taylor. As with any box construction, it is very important to let each stage dry well before moving to the next step.

It is best to make these rings where you can cut them and leave to dry without moving them. Both the body and the edges of the rings are very thin and they distort easily. Drying them slowly in place also prevents warping.

You can create beautiful seamless rings, with all your metal clays, using a Ringmaker Kit. Ringmakers are made of durable acrylic, are easy to use, and are easy to clean. They can be used over and over again to make perfect rings.
Basic instructions for using the Ring Maker as a starting point for a quick, attractive ring.
