YEAH FOR CLAY!!
This year for clay projects we created different creatures out of pinch pot forms. The 2nd and 3rd graders created a Clay Turtle while the 4th and 5th grade kiddos made up their own Clay Dragon. Both of these projects we painted with Tempera Cakes and then coated in Mod Podge to give them a smooth shiny finish. The paint simply allowed for more details to be put into the projects.
CLAY DRAGONS 4/5
CLAY TURTLES 2/3
For the lil ones we did a simple clay slab Owl by rolling folding and stamping the clay. For these we used Glazes to finish them off with a shine.
