Project Instructions

Use air-dry clay and begin to soften it with some water. Work the clay in your hands and begin to form the shape of an elephant or turtle as shown.

Roll four balls of clay to be used for the legs. Mold them to the base and use your dampened fingers to smooth over the surface.

Finish off by smoothing over the entire surface and making marks where needed with the tip of a pencil.

Let dry completely 24-48 hours.

Paint with Craft Smart® acrylic paint. Let dry.

Finish by painting on ArtMinds™ Decoupage Glue Sealer. Let completely dry.
