Just Fishin' (Clay Fish)


This lesson is such a good one to rotate every few years. Students always seem to really use their creativity in their imaginations while constructing the facial features.
 We have blogged on this once before, here in link below:
 Directions:
White low fire clay
Give the size of a softball in clay
Have them create clay fish or frog
Add details
Let wet clay get bone dry
Fire slow on Cone 04
Take out use overglaze
Fire again in ceramic kiln at 06
Take out!
Viola...love the way they all turned out =)
 See other links for this lesson:
 Details:
Facial features
Fins
Teeth
Mouth
Lips
Accessories - braces on teeth

























 Glazes - the best way I have found to use them in class.

 Braces, Ha! Such a middle school detail to add.
