1 Pottery making is a tradition around the world. This project was inspired by the Lenni Lenape, Native Americans who lived in the eastern United States.
2 To create pastel colors for your pottery, color white Crayola® Model Magic compound with color from Crayola Washable Markers. Knead the modeling compound with your fingers to blend. Keep adding washable marker color until you have the shade you want.
3 Shape Model Magic compound into a vase, bowl, or other pottery. To create a simple pinch pot, press your thumb into a ball of the material. Shape and smooth the inside and outside of your pot.
4 If you wish, use a craft stick or plastic dinnerware to etch designs into the pinch pot.
