Create a multicolored, decorative clay vase or dish. Fill it with dried flowers, seashells, or other beautiful items. This is a unique, handmade gift to treasure.
Find information about different colors of natural clay. You will learn that minerals (or stones) give clay its color. You may have seen porcelain (white clay, often used for fine china) and terra-cotta (red or rust-colored, such as plant pots).
Sometimes two or more clay colors are mixed a little to create a marbleized look. Here’s one way to easily create this cool effect! Thoroughly blend Crayola Tempera Paint into a ball of Crayola Air-Dry Clay. Then LIGHTLY mix in a little more plain clay, just until you see streaks. It’s marbleized!
On a paper plate, roll a finger-size coil of your marbleized clay. With the rest of it, use your fingers to create a pinch pot vase or bowl. Try to form an interesting shape! Place the pot upside down on a ball of crumpled newspaper. Dampen the bottom of your pot with your finger. Attach your coil to make a base. Air-dry the pot for at least 2 days.
What natural objects would look beautiful inside your bowl or vase? Arrange seed pods, paper flowers, stones, or feathers inside, for example. What a wonderful, unique gift!
