Here is a little clay tutorial that we did for the beginning of the holidays, you can create this simple baby jelly fish with the little ones at home. We made this use using minimum fuss, just clay, glue, paint brush (for making indention) and glue paint.
Baby Jelly Fish!
Mix a little bit of blue clay with lots of white clay to get the shade of baby blue that I want. Just grab a small lump from the pack ( size of a Ping Pong ball). I use Hearty clay for this project. You can get it from my webstore.
Cut the clay into half, then use 1 of the half and cut them into 5 pieces (sorry only 4 small pieces shown here) , roll the 5 small pieces of clay into teardrop shapes (shown below) . That is suppose to the tentacles. Next, roll the other half of the clay into a round ball shape and use your thumb to make a slight indention on it and apply a small amount of white glue. (see photo)
Your jelly fish's should looked like this bottom up.
You are almost 60% done here
And apply glue like this ...
Make 3 little thin strip of clay and stick them on the glued part, again use the end of the paint brush to make 2 small indention for the eyes, and use a tiny bit of clay, shaped it into a small round shape for the nose (remember to apply as well!)
Next use black glue paint to fill up the small indention meant for the eyes.....
The finished Project!
We made another pink jelly fish girl friend for it! ^-^
