Begin by choosing the type of sculpture you would like to create. To create the storyteller turtle, start by creating it shell like you would a pinch-pot. Begin with a ball of clay. Press your thumb into the center. With your thumb in the center and your other fingers are on the outside, pinch around the ball until you have made a bowl.
Roll a ball in your hands to create the turtle’s head. Pinch and pull a neck and face and use a sharp clay tool to draw an open mouth. Attach to the underside of the shell. Roll two balls for eyes, slip and score them to the head. Add feet or flippers and a tail to your turtle. Smooth the entire sculpture using your finger dipped in water. Lastly, draw some designs on the back of the shell using a pencil or sharp clay to. Repeat the process for a few small baby turtles.
Set the sculptures aside to dry overnight. Once dry, you can begin painting your storytellers with acrylic paint.
