Clay crosses

Wanted to try something new and small so I thought I would have a go at making crosses from clay. Also put a hole through the top of the crosses so that I can put a string through it.

Steps:

  • Roll slab of clay
  • Draw and cut out a paper ‘template’ of a cross
  • Place template on the clay and cut out the shapes
  • Make small flower and join to the cross (I used a flower press mould for the small flowers)
  • Let dry
  • Do a light sanding to smooth them out
  • First firing
  • Apply a glaze
  • Second firing
