Step 7:

Etch three hash marks into the clay shape using the pointed tool in the Activ-Tools™ Clay Tools Set. Doing this will allow the clay pieces to stick together nicely when you attach them together.

Step 8:

Roll three small pea sized spheres of clay for the feet of the dish. Attach them to the bottom of the large shape where the hashmarks are. Use a small about of clay mixed together with water to make slip (a type of clay glue) when you attach them. Gently press the spheres down with your finger tip.

Step 11:

Allow the clay dish to dry for 24 hours. Then paint your dish any color you wish. You can add in a little glitter to give it some sparkle. Use matte finish - Mod Podge sealant to seal in your paint and give your dish an all over smooth finish.
