Pinch a smaller piece off of the clay
You have two pieces of clay.One should be bigger.
Use your hands to roll the large piece of clay into a ball.
Stick your thumb deep into the ball to make a hole.
Use your fingers to pinch the clay.Go around in a circle.
This will make your hole bigger.
Now use the smaller piece of clay to add some other parts.
• Use your imagination to think of something fun to turn your clay into
• Pottery, Animals, monsters, anything your mind can create!
Score your pieces and the place you are going to attach it to on the pot.
Scoring is making texture marks on your clay. Up and down. Left and right.
Add the slip to the pieces you are going to attach.
Slip is clay and water.It holds the clay together.If you do not use slip the pieces will fall off once they have dried.
Spread the slip on the piece of clay.Like buttering your bread.

don’t fall off.
