This month Currier students are building clay bells for the garden.
We made up a lot these...pinch pots and beads.
To stay organized, we dried and fired the beads right in the pinch pots.
Paint your pots and add a final coat of clear gloss to weather proof.
We string our beads and pots onto a cord so they don't get mixed up while they dry or in between coats, and add a masking tape label with our name.
Arrange your beads and bells. Secure each addition in place with an overhand knot.
Hang and enjoy.
Helpful Hint: Little kids can mold their pots in silicone cupcake forms (just like clay cupcakes).
