  • Water bottle - empty
  • Bowl of water
  • Masking tape

  6. Continue wrapping up to the edge of nozzle where cap is attached. Wrap the bottle cap with clay also. Replace covered cap onto bottle to ensure that it fits snug onto water bottle. Smooth out with brayer if there are any large dips in clay. Add two teardrops to the front of face for eyes.

Notes:

  1. Air dry clay can dry out if left exposed to air too long. To prevent this, keep unused clay wrapped in plastic wrap. You can add one drop of water to your fingers to work into the clay. Too much water makes the clay too sticky.
