Clay Artproject, Fish

This is a great project to do with autistic adult, always a success.
I allways start with the technique of forming round shape balls the size of a cherry; I like this technique because I do not have to worry about kneading the clay well, and you get a very special boarder edge.

Using a paper plate as a base we filling the plate with clay balls.

Then I give out a cutout shape of a fish and help the members draw the outline of the fish with a sharp tool on the clay.
Once they had the ouline of the fish or object they used mosic stones to fill the inside of the fish.
Around the fish, the background was embossed with an icecream stick.
A layer of glue in put on the total artproject, once dry the paperplate can be removed.
