Score and slip all the pieces together.

Scoring is scratching the edges of clay before joining them together. Slip is liquid clay used to join pieces of clay together like glue. You can make slip by mixing water and clay together in a dish. Do this scoring technique on all the parts that you put together. This will help keep your pieces from falling apart later when they dry.

 

Step 2: Wings

Smooth the side pieces of clay onto the body.
