How to Make a Clay Penguin

These clay penguins were shared by another Texas art teacher, Bert Mayse. To make: start by hand building a pinch pot then stretch it around your thumb. Add the feet and wings with the score (tic-tac-toe box) and slip (add water with a wet finger) method. Let dry and fire. Bert painted the penguins using tempera paint.

No clay? Try it with Model Magic, or air dry clay.
