These air dry clay Dragon eyes are simple to make and engage boys and girls for a good hour or more. These would make a fab whole class project or would be a great activity at Beavers, Cubs or Scouts.
You will need:
- Air Dry Clay
- Simple clay tools or any utensils that you can find
- Dragon eyes
- Acrylic Paint and brushes
- Decorations or glitter
Start with a ball of clay. Roll it out and cut a large oval shape. Add your eye to the centre. Using sausage shapes – construct eye lids around the eye – sticking them on using ‘slip’ – water and a hashed effect to the back – this will help to stick the eye lids and any other parts down.
Add patterns to the eye base using a tool or add swirls and other shapes to stick them on.
Once dry, the eye can be painted using acrylic paint. We used metallic paints for ours.
