clay project –sea and shells

Shells from my walk on the beach.
We used card board egg container to form the rectanguler shape.
The technique of forming round shape balls the size of a cherry was used, they filled the egg container with round shape balls. Once the container was full they rubbed the shapes together to make it smooth and flat. I like this technique because I do not have to worry about kneading the clay well, and you get a very special boarder edge.
To make the design "a wave" , they worked on paper.
They cut the design and placed it on the clay, using a stick they traced the line.
It was colored with a mix of gauche and glue.
Shells were pressed in the clay to decorate while the glue/paint are still wet.
When dry add a layer of glue on entire art project.
