clay texture slabs, first grade

 


These cute and colorful texture slabs were made by rolling two clay spheres and pressing them into pancake-like slabs with our hands.  Next, we textured one slab with gadgets like marker caps and lego bricks, while we used a cookie cutter for the second slab.  We learned how to attach the two pieces by scoring and slipping, and then after firing and glazing, we added pipe cleaner hangers decorated with beads.

  2. Great idea. Do you use regular glaze or are these underglazes?
