  • 2. thumbnail sketches. Procedures Give each student a piece of clay and a plastic bag and direct them to work with the clay on top of the bag. Have each student use his/her palms to flatten a ball of clay into a thin, even rectangular slab about the size and shape of a piece of bread. Have students smooth the edges with water and then inscribe their names on the back of each milagro. Tell students to draw their chosen image on the clay, making designs very simple. Point out that they can carve deeper lines and create textures on the clay, especially on the background and on the edges of the tile. As students work, circulate around the room and drill a hole in each tile for hanging with a straw. If students cannot finish the work in one class period, have them wrap their tiles in their plastic bags and label them with their names (write on masking tape and stick to the bag). Store the bagged work until the next class. When the tiles are finished, let them dry completely before firing, glazing, or painting. Bisque-fired work can be painted with acrylics and rubbed with Rub ‘n Buff or glazed and refired. Self- hardening clay can be painted or sprayed with acrylics.
