Paper clip jar and paper clips or boomarkers Part 2

Continuing from part 1…

Take another 1/2″ ball of the mixed green.

Flatten with your finger.

Make two indentations in the flattened ball about a 1/4″ apart.

Pinch a point out of the clay between the indentations.

Now make a point in the clay on each side of the middle point.

With the skewer point make the indentations deeper and longer by laying the skewer across the clay there.

Mark the veins with the back of the blade.

Add to the top of the jar.

Another 1/2″ ball of the mixed green. Roll into a teardrop and flatten.

Mark the center vein with the back of the blade or a dullish knife. (be careful please)

Mark the side veins. Add to jar lid.

Another 1/2″ ball of clay. Roll into a longish teardrop and flatten. Mark indentations in the out side of the leaf with the point of a bamboo skewer.

Hold skewer perpendicular to the teardrop of clay.

Mark center vein with the back of the blade. Add to jar.

Roll another 1/2″ ball of the mixed green in to a longish teardrop and flatten with your finger.

Mark the center vein with the back of the blade. 

Cut the side veins with the blade. Cut all the way through.

Grab the thick end and gently pull off the work surface. This will spread the sections a little.

Add leaves to the jar lid.

Leave the faces poking out.

Stay tuned for part 3…
