  • Step 1
    Mix Claycrete according to the directions on the package. (1 lb. should make enough for one student.)
  • Step 2
    Use half of the Claycrete to shape a bowl on a 4" styrofoam ball or any bowl. Walls should be about 3/8" thick.
  • Step 3
    Attach 7-8 glass gems around the side of the bowl. With the other half of the Claycrete, form a base and add embellishments.
  • Step 4
    Sculpt additional details with clay modeling tools. Allow Claycrete to thoroughly set and dry overnight, then remove styrofoam ball or bowl.
  • Step 5
    Paint with acrylic or tempera paint. Let dry.
