Clay Snowflake Bowl with Stencils

Materials: clay, rolling pins, paper snowflakes, glaze

Optional: How to make a paper snowflake handout

1.) Roll out a slab of clay that is about 1/4'' thick.

2.) Cut out a circle (I used a paper plate as a template).

3.) Press a design around the edge of the circle.

4.) Cut out paper snowflakes, use a sponge to stick them to the clay.

5.) Paint over everything with underglaze.

6.) When the underglaze has dried, carefully peel the snowflakes up.

7.) I used a plaster mold to form a bowl shape, you can also use newspaper or disposable bowls.

8.) Bisque the bowl, then coat with clear glaze and glaze fire!
