Today the children created their little clay selves for the sets. They started with these wireforms made of twisted floral wire and coated them with a thin layer of clay. We used small beads for eyes and used permanent marker for the pupils.
A tip for working with clay, use only one color at a time and wash your hands in between switching to other colors. Also, avoid touching the face of the figure once you complete it as warm hands can quickly transform a nice face into a blurry blob.
