Lisa from California sent us 2 pictures of clay projects her son Jeremy made during his main lesson on Ancient Greece. The 1st picture is of a clay medusa and the 2nd is a bas relief. Here's how he did it:
Jeremy used a picture/ hieroglyph out of a Dover coloring book. He copied this onto a rolled out piece of clay with a clay tool, and then cut away around the heiroglyph so it was raised up. The trick is copying it as if you are looking at it in a mirror. Then he used it as a stamp by painted the clay and placed paper over it. He used tempera paint.
