About The Event
I'm so excited to bring you this super fun pig in a mud puddle clay class. We will start out by reading a pig themed book and then we will then dive right into our clay hand-building class to make a fun pig peeking out of a mud puddle! We will discuss clay terminology and apply that knowledge to building our pigs. Some of the clay techniques we will be using are pinch pot techniques, slabs, slip and score methods and more! Students will follow along as we work through each individual step. We will do a quick review after each step to ensure that students are understanding the concepts. Please note, this is a one-day class for building the pinch pot pigs. A pre-recorded video will be available for students to watch after class with tips and tricks on ways to paint their pigs once they are dry.
In this class, you will need to have the following supplies, these supplies can be found at stores such as Walmart, Target and craft stores or they can be ordered online from a retailer such as Amazon: * 1 lb. Air dry clay, I like the Crayola brand (2.5 lb. bucket is about $5) Amazon link: https://amzn.to/3fxCS7g * Table cloth or something to protect your space * Apron or old shirt for student to protect clothing * Small sponge * Small cup or bowl of water * Fork or toothpick Optional: * We will not be painting these pigs during a live class, but if your learner would like to do so once the pig is dry, acrylic paints work best. I like the brands Apple Barrel and Folk Art, but any acrylic or tempura paint will be perfect! The colors I use in my tips and tricks video are black, brown, white and red. * Mod Podge sealer. Most acrylic paints will have a semi-gloss finish, so this isn't necessary unless you want your piece to have a high gloss finish. ($7 for a 16 oz. bottle)
