  • Step 1Think about what you would like your clay sculpture to look like. Look to our design for inspiration or come up with your own.
  • Step 2Start moulding clay in your hands to soften it.
  • Step 3Push, prod and mould the clay until you are happy with your design. You may like to use clay tools to accentuate your creation.
  • Step 4Set aside and allow to dry for 24-48 hours.
  • We attached 3 wooden blocks together with glue to create a base for our design.
