Description

Class Experience

The students will need the following: 
* Sculpy or Fimo clay in a variety of colors. Please note, while I used blue and green for the majority of my mermaid, the color combinations are completely up to the learners. 
        - skin color 
        - hair color
        - Color for the tail
        - black and white for eyes, and other details
        - red or pink for the lips
        - Any other decorative color the kids might like. 

* Armature wire/soft aluminum wire, anywhere between 16 to 20 gauge. 
* Jewelry wire cutters that are safe and easy to use. 
* Basic clay tools. In the absence of the tools, a toothpick, or a large plastic sewing needle will work for most things.  

I am happy to provide links or photos of the materials upon request.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Younger learners may require parental assistance making the clay more malleable. We will also be using wire, soft aluminum wire is best. The students may require assistance cutting the wire, depending on their age and ability. At the end of the lesson, once our unicorn is complete, the learners will need assistance with the use the oven in order to bake the completed project. 

Note to parents, please be sure to follow instructions when baking the clay. The temperatures for this kind of clay is often quite low (around 250 degrees), and is stated on the clay box or wrapper.
