Knead a lump of clay and roll it into a ball. Gently press the ball against the table to flatten the base.
Model a hole at the centre. Try placing a boiled egg in the hole to check the size is right.
Squeeze the clay up and outwards at the front so you can model and carve the ears to shape. Sculpt the front to make a nose. When your egg cup is nice and smooth, leave to air dry.
Tip! If the clay starts drying before you are done, dip your fingers in water to moisten the surface.
When your egg cup has finished air-drying, you can gently smooth the clay using sandpaper. Paint on eyes and other features using craft gloss paint. Apply Oceanlack Varnish all over to seal.
Animal-shaped egg cups are fun and easy to model from clay. Here we crafted cute little bunnies. Adorable decor for displaying painted eggs. NOTE! Bear in mind that air-dry clay sculptures are not dishwasher-safe; to clean them, cloth-wipe only.
