This was a project idea that I have seen a couple of times on Pinterest. It was hugely popular with my Year 2 to Year 5 classes that tried it and a great way to practice blending their inks. We first drew our eyes in pencil and then outlined with a black wax crayon. Colour was added using ink and students had the option to also add a small amount of glitter.
I gave my Year 6 and 7's a fairly open ended clay project to create a piece of jewellery or an ornament. They also had the option of adding a glass element to their piece (we do this by adding a glass marble during the glaze firing). I am so impressed by their originality and creativity. These are just some of the results so far. More photos coming soon!
