Project Instructions

  1. Knead black clay for 2 minutes.

  2. Lava tends to be rather sharp and covered with holes and bumps, so make a small lump of black clay and texture it really well, using the side of a pencil and the square eraser-end of a pencil.  Make a variety of holes and markings.

  3. ADULT: Bake on oven-proof glass or metal surface at 275º F (130º C) for 15 minutes per ¼-inch (6mm) of thickness. Do not use in microwave or toaster oven. Place baking sheet on the lowest oven rack when baking. Do not exceed the above temperatures or recommended baking time. Baking should be completed by an adult.


Do not use unbaked clay on unprotected furniture or finished surfaces.

Good working surfaces include glass or metal, disposable foil or wax paper.

Be sure to clean hands and tools before starting your project.

Wash hands after working with clay.
