pinch pot

Clay Pinch Pots created by 1st grade. This is air drying clay. Sadly no kiln, but perhaps one day!  I used gloss Mod Podge to coat these.  i tried to mix gloss Mod Podge with water and dip them in to speed up the process, but it didn’t make them glossy enough, so these were coated with a brush.  Perhaps I need more Mod Podge or just plain  Mod Podge for dipping. They almost look like something from the sea because we tried to create finger print textured pots. To help the 1st graders with the technique for pinching I showed them what I call the “Peace Sign Pinch”.  We make a peace sign and use those fingers for pinching on the outside. It worked pretty well!
