DIMPLED CLAY PLANTER
You will need tape measure; small pot or tin for your plant; Crayola Air-Dry Clay in White from Spotlight; rolling pin; ruler; a round object to create dimples.
ONE Measure the height and circumference of the pot or tin and take note for later.
TWO Wash your hands thoroughly to ensure you don’t make marks in the white clay.
THREE Knead the clay for at least 1 minute to soften it.
FOUR Form the clay into a ball and place on a clean and dry flat surface. Use a rolling pin to roll clay until it forms a 1.5cm-thick rectangle that is 5cm longer than your pot’s circumference and about 3cm wider than the height of your pot.
FIVE To create straight and neat edges, push a ruler into the edges of clay and discard excess.
SIX Gently use the clay to form a tube around your pot.
SEVEN Fasten the two edges together by gently pressing the clay together. Smooth the seam.
EIGHT To create the dimples, press a round object into the clay in straight rows with dimples alternating to the row above.
NINE Allow to air-dry following clay packet instructions.
