As a child I spent many hours playing with Plasticine and window putty, it smells beautiful! Then at school I discovered air dry clay, wow!
These little pots are useful as well as arty and would make excellent gifts with a little something inside.
Please note that clay can and probably will stain your clothes and soft furnishings so be careful! If your clay starts to dry as you are using it simply spritz with water.
Start by making a disc shape with your clay, this will be the bottom of your pot. Make some clay sausages also and coil your sausages...
Using a rub on applicator or lolly stick blend the clay to make smooth sides.
