This forms the body of the owl.
Flatten the bottom of the body, so the owl will stand up.
Poke a hole in the bottom, so the owl won't explode in the kiln!
The hole should be the diameter of a pencil.
Decide whether you are making a Barn Owl or a Great Horned Owl.
Great Horned Owl
Barn Owls have heart shaped faces.
Great Horned Owls have feathers on their heads that look like ear folds.
Add a beak. Owls have short, curved, downward-facing beaks that are hooked at the end.
Add the heart shape or ear folds.
Don't forget to score and blend the clay.
Examples of scoring the clay
Add eyes to your owl by pressing a clay tool of your choice into the clay.
You may also add clay to make raised eyes.
Poke a hole in the clay eye of your owl to look like a pupil.
