What everyday items do you know about that are made by molding, pressing, or printing? (coins, license plates, leather, gelatin, candles) Do you enjoy making footprints in mud, sand, or snow? Then you’ll really enjoy making prints with Crayola Air-Dry Clay.
Gather several objects such as marker caps, shells, and other items that have either a raised or indented design. Be inventive! The clay is so smooth you can make very fine designs in it.
Use a clean, washable surface. Roll the clay into a ball about as wide as the object you are going to use to make an impression. Press the ball into the object (or vice versa) and gently pull them apart. Is your design raised or indented? Concave or convex?
Wash the clay off the objects you pressed before the clay dries. Air-dry your impression for at least 3 days.
