Think about what part of the picture might be closest to you if it has depth.
Choose two or three details to add low relief.
Use a bit of practice clay and try making a little shape like a circle or a nose.
1
Try it on! If it’s too big or too small. Take away or add a bit of clay to get a better fit. Try it on again.
2
Keep trying on the little detail! When it fits & you like the look of it, it’s time to attach.
3
Use a bit of water and a tool to scratch and attach the low relief clay detail.
4
Scratch both the tile area and the add on detail.
5
Sandwich the two parts together, and press to join the pieces.
6
There may be slurry that squished out! Just clean it off gently with your pencil ;)
Continue to add low relief to the tile in the same way. Scratch to attach each piece with water.
Check your craftsmanship!
7
When done, store the finished tile in the plastic zipper bag. We want to keep it a bit wet for travel back to school.

Have fun! The more you practice the better you get!
