Step 1: Round Your Clay Into a Ball

This is to create an ice cream scoop so that you can later flatten the bottom. After you make a ball, gently press the ball onto the table so that it is flat and can stand upright. Repeat this 3 times.

Step 2: Add Details to Your Clay Ball

Start adding light lines onto your 3 clay balls. You can do this by using a needle tool or an unused toothbrush for additional texture.

Step 3: Create Crescent-Shaped Bananas

To create a banana shape, you simply just roll the clay and then stretch it out and bend the ends. Or if that seems like too much work, use a mold!

Step 4: Blueberries

Blueberries aren't the only topping you can can choose sprinkles, chocolate chips, nuts, etc. Personally, I chose blueberries to add a pop of color. This can be achieved by rounding clay into small balls and creating small punctures on the top with a needle tool.

Step 5: Make a Bowl!

This step is optional, as you could just use a bowl you have in your house, but I made my bowl. You can do this by using a random bowl in your house as a mold for your clay. After you let the clay dry on the mold, peel it off gently.

Step 6: Put It All Together!

Now all you have to do is arrange it in a bowl! YAY! You're done with making it!

Step 7: Time to Fire/Glaze!!

Now just put it in the kiln and wait! After it's done, enjoy glazing it to however you desire!
