Steps1. Wedge your clay2. Form your box by tapping and / or sculpting into desired shape / form3. Texture the sides4. Wind yarn tightly around fingers like dental floss5. Pull yarn UNEVENLY through clay to create a jagged lock and key cut for the lid6. Draw a line ¼” in from the outside edge of box7. Use the subtractive method to scoop out clay from inside the line you drew and form thin, even walls on your box & lid.8. Use the additive method to add clay onto your box by slipping, scoring and sealing to attach feet, handles, knobs, arms, and / or other features.9. Scratch your first & last name into the bottom of the box.10. Wrap in plastic if unfinished or sit on shelf / showcase if completely finished11. Clean up all clay crumbs, wash tools & hands in bucket then wash with soap & water in the sink12. Clay can NOT go down the drain. It will clog it!13. Wipe off desk / work area
