  • Step 1

    Sketch out your self portrait onto a piece of paper before you start to create your artwork. Once you have a design, transfer it lightly onto your frame using a pencil. This is not essential, but helps with planning your design.

  • Step 2

    Start to mix and mould your clever clay into the colours and shapes required for your design.

  • Step 3

    Press the clay into your frame to create your artwork. Start with the shapes and colours that will be in the background of your design, and build up the other shapes and colours on top to create a 3D layered effect.

  • Step 4

    Decorate the outside of your frame. You may wish to cover the whole thing, make a pattern or perhaps even paint it instead of using clay. Get creative!
