Project Instructions

  1. Make one 3-inch long "snake" each of green and white clay, making the green snake a little fatter than the white snake.

  2. Twist the two snakes together and continue to twist until the bands of color get really thin.

  3. Pinch the twisted snakes in half and roll them into a ball. Roll the rest of the clay into a ball to make a second pebble if you wish.

  4. 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.

Tips

Knead clay for 2 minutes before using.

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. For best results, clean hands in between colors.

Start with lighter colors and work your way down to darker colors, to avoid discoloring the clay.

Wash hands after working with clay.
