Makin' clay

Yesterday for art day we used clay. We used different varities of strategies to model our clay. Everyone in each class brought a shoebox or ice cream container to store their clay models. The boxes can't be see through otherwise the clay will dry up quickly. We used air dry clay so that our clay dries quickly. Then we put our displays on cardboard and looked at other classes's models. I got lots of thumbs up.
 Here is a pic of me clay models. It has:
A mouse, a cake, ice cream, a jelly, a wheel barrow,  a rainbow, a bat , a elephant head, a shoe and beads for a necklace.

  1. I most enjoyed moulding the clay and playing with it.
  2. The most challenging thing for me would be try to smoothen the clay because the clay kept drying up.
  3. I really loved looking at other peoples models.  


  1. You have created a lovely variety of items Aye. It was tricky to work with the clay when it dried out a bit.. What tools helped to smooth it out? Did you use a spoon? Your piece is going to amazing when we paint it!

  2. Thanks for the comment Ebony.
    For the clay I smoothened out with a spoon.
    It was cool how a spoon can smoothen out clay to different textures.
