Figuartive piece - clay
1. To make the figurative piece from clay first I started with a pinch pot and widened it to make the shell. Then I cut the fins and attached them to the shell and made a smaller pinch pot for the head. I fired it and then painted the design on with watercolor.
2. It was successful with the shape and design on the shell of the fins.
3. I had difficulties with the shell holding up the rest of the body as it fell apart at first. It was difficult to keep the clay the right softness to be able to keep molding.
