Straws or other tools to make holes in clay
See the Clay Chapter for more instructions, hints, tips, and ideas.
Make a ball of clay and flatten to less than 1/4". Using a straw or other tool, cut small holes out of the clay. You can push on the sides of the straw to get different shaped holes. Snowflakes usually have a six-fold symmetry. This means that one part is repeated five other times to make the whole. But then again, they are not all perfect. Allow to thoroughly dry, then paint.
