Materials For A Ribbed Air Dry Clay Planter
Step 1. Knead And Roll Out The Air Dry Clay Knead the clay to warm it up before rolling it out. It’s easier to knead if you do it in smaller pieces.
Step 2. Wrap The Clay Around The Bottle Lay the bottle onto the air dry clay and line up the clay with the bottom so it is even.
Step 3. Join The Air Dry Clay Planter Sides Once the clay is wrapped, the two ends should meet. Roll up a very thin piece of clay between your hands that is about the thickness of a toothpick.
Step 4: Trim The Air Dry Clay Planter Top And Bottom Edges If you weren’t able to trim the size of the rolled out clay perfectly, go ahead & trim it to clean up the top & bottom edges so they are even.
