Corky Clay, I Clay - Yellow, White, Fevicol MR, Small Red Ornamental Stones, Clay Modelling Tools (if available), Scale, Water Container
This Nesting bird is made using basic techniques of forming clay, like the pinching technique, coil technique and creating shapes by rolling the clay in your hands.
STEP 1 :
Crumple a full sized sheet of a newspaper into the shape of a ball.
STEP 2 :
Roll a medium sized ball out of the Corky Clay.
STEP 3 :
Further roll it into a long coil.
STEP 4 :
Arrange the long coil spirally around the ball made of the crumpled paper.
STEP 5 :
You will need about 3 to 4 long coils to complete the nest. Leave the nest to dry
STEP 6 :
Take I Clay – White, make 2 oval shaped eggs out of it. Take the same sized ball of White I Clay and cut it into two halves to make the cracked egg. The cracked egg is made by pinching technique.
STEP 7 :
To make the chick, roll a medium sized ball of I Clay – Yellow. Pinch it into a bird shape. Use a scale or a modelling tool to make the linear textures on the body of the chick. Embed small red ornamental stones for its eyes. Leave it to dry
STEP 8 :
Assemble the eggs and the chick in the nest and stick it with Fevicol MR.
