Modelling with Clay

The Butterflies explored modelling with clay. 

They used water to enable to clay to soften and become malleable. 

Using their hands to manipulate the clay into various shapes and forms. 

Tools were added and the children used sculpting knives and rolling pins to shape the clay. 

The children built stories around their sculptures telling the team what they were making or designing. 

Once the clay had dried the children were able to decorate the clay. 

Making them individual by exploring with colour and marks. 

Small paint brushes were used to make marks on the clay. 

Mixing colours together to case effects.
