Introduction: Powdered Clays
In this (short) instructable I will be showing you how to make throwing clays (shotgun sport) with chalk powder in the lip that burst on contact when shot.
Things you'll need;
-cup and spoon(to distribute chalk)
Step 1: Lay Down Newspaper
I used carpenters chalk for chalk lines, it is very hard to get off clothing so I layed down newspaper and kept it away from stainable things
Step 2: Arrange Your Clays
You'll want to put the clays in a place that is easily reachable, I payed mine out in two rows of 8 with some on the end (in the picture, some are already filled)
Step 3: Add Your Powder
Take about a spoonful of your chalk and shake it into the top of your clays
Step 4: Cut Out Your Lids
Trace a square the size of your clay and cut out LOTS OF THEM, as some will rip in the process. I had a box of about 135 clays, I made 200 squares
Step 5: Finish Your Clays
Place a ring of glue (I used a glue stick) and press your newspaper lid on tight, press out any wrinkles on edge. I then took an Exacto knife And cleaned the edges up
