Where did you get the backing hardware for your wonderful knobs?

@H, it's around 275 degrees. The length of time in the oven is based upon the thickness of the clay. Usually 15 minutes per 1/4 inch thickness. But different brands of clay vary time and temp a little bit, so be sure to check the package.

What a great DIYer! I am goin to give this a go- what temp does the oven need to be and for how long?

Note:  Be sure your base knob is heat stable.  A friend was covering light switches and found that Bakelite does not like heat.

Glad you like it Emily! It's a great project for a weekend afternoon.

LOVE THIS!!!! I am adding this to my list of fall projects. What a fabulous idea, thanks for sharing!

Using the rasp was my idea but not the grating bit. I was surprised at how much fun I had experimenting with different looks.  And it was incredibly easy!

Those turned out amazing! I love the bake-then-rasp approach you took for the granite. Genius.
