Turtles and other sea creatures
Wednesday, December 22, 2010
Since we made the coral reef mural this year, we won't have time to complete another mural. But I had my students make ceramic sea creatures for the mural I want to make next school year. They've been great about making one sea animal, glazing it, and putting it in my "sea creature" box.
These are some of my favorites - plus a few of my 21 turtles. And yes, I used a cookie cutter for the baby turtles, and then used a shoe or the back of a tile to imprint a design on the shell area. Then glaze plus some crystals for mottled colors on the shells. (Students who had completed all of their work were given a few turtles to glaze, following those directions.)
I like the pink shark. Who knows what that kid was thinking, LOL??
