Using a clean, washable surface. students roll clay into a ball about as wide as the object used to make an impression. Press the ball into the object (or vice versa) and gently pull them apart. Is the design raised or indented? Concave or convex?
Wash the clay off the objects pressed before the clay dries. Air-dry impression for at least 3 days.
