Materials used:

Air-Drying Modelling clay (White), Poster paints.

Steps:

  • Took a lump of clay and shaped it in to a ball.
  • Then pressed the ball in the middle to form a flat bowl shape.
  • Shaped the edges to form the wall of the pot
  • Added the base using another strip of clay.
  • Left it on the open for drying.
  • Painted the pot with the base coat of yellow.
  • Drew some flowers and leaves on itusing bright colors.

Note:

Always choose a model pot anything like real vases or images for your design. It will be easy for the kids to visualize their design and work that without much difficulty.

You can see the progress in the below pictures.
