Slabs of clay
Extra clay for details
Cut a rectangle or square slab of clay for the base
Cut a circle out of another slab of clay, which will be the middle of the sun.
Add sun rays, a face and other details, making sure they are resting on the base or they will fall off
Encourage the kids to use piece of clay to add details/texture rather than carving out details.
Kiln fire, glaze, and fire again.
- Looking at the picture, the suns aren't on bases. They may appear sturdy, but the sun rays kept breaking off. Building them on a clay slab base makes the suns sturdier.
