Aladdin Lamps

aladin lamp

We had a great time making our very own Aladdin lamps, we had written instructions on how to make them so we knew exactly what we had to do.  We used our armatures (frames) to put the clay onto and spent a lovely morning smoothing the clay out, adding a base and a handle for the lid and finally etching into the wet clay with a selection of different tools.  We had to take care to not let the clay dry out, so we used a water spray to keep it damp enough to work with.

Take a look at the photos below of use creating our armatures and then completing the lamps by working with clay.
