My older daughter (she is 7) adores mermaids so I decided to make one for her, out of clay during the art workshops I attend. It did not come out perfect (ugly to be honest) but she loves in anyway (!)
- white clay
- clay paints
- transparent glaze
- clay tools
- pottery kiln
- paint brushes
At first I gave my mermaid some dreadlocks, unfortunately they started breaking off when the clay started drying out.
So I made new hair, nose and added also some leaves to the stone she is seated on.
Then I painted the details completely forgetting that the paints will turn brighter once glazed and fired.
