How can I add 3D / relief decoration into wet clay?


There are so many ways to add 3D/relief decoration to a wet piece of clay, you’re spoilt for choice!

*You can add textures by pressing in found objects/tools, e.g. lace, buttons, flowers, screws, coins, anything you can find that has 3D detail. *You can roll textures onto clay, e.g. a textured rolling pin, a corn on the cob, a wicker ball, a textured bottle *You can roll clay onto another surface, e.g. grass, the pavement *You can carve into the clay using tools or found objects such as twigs, spoons etc.

These are some of the many techniques that you can use to add relief to your clay, there are so many more! Exploring with clay this way is so much fun and the possibilities are limitless. Play, explore and have fun!
