Step 1: Doughing Red Clay Balls
To begin this craft, take a white sheet and using scissors, cut it down into a circle. Now, take red clay and start doughing it into small balls.
Step 2: Making Fish Body
Place the red clay balls closely, making 3 lines of them in ascending order (3-4-5)
Step 3: Completing Making Body Of The Fish
Make 2 more lines below them in descending order (3-2). This makes the body of the fish and presses it gently to make it stick over the paper.
Step 4: Making Fins Of The Fish
Take a red sheet of paper and cut out 2 long hexagons from it using scissors. Fold the hexagon from the short side to make zigzag strips of it and then fold the strips from the longer side into half to form fins. Paste these fins on each side of the fish’s body using glue. Also, paste the ends of the folded strips to each other.
Step 5: Making A Tail Of The Fish
For the tail, cut out 2 hexagons from a red sheet, this time one bigger than the other. Now, follow the same previous steps over these hexagons, then paste the small strips behind the bigger ones and using glue make them stick together, this forms the tail. Paste the tail behind the fish using glue.
Step 6: Pasting Googly Eyes
Paste 2 googly eyes side-by-side above the fish’s body using glue.
Step 7: Making Another Fish
Follow the previous steps to make another fish over the sheet, but this time upside down to the first fish.
Now, Your Fish Clay Craft Is Ready!
For the last step, cut out some tiny irregular triangles for the red sheet and paste them randomly over the white paper using glue.
