During this current session, Ancient Egypt, students created Faience Plates. First we made salt dough clay, then srudents rolled the clay out flat and cut out a circle using a lid. The circles were allowed to dry and then they drew flowers on them using pencil and painted the pieces with acrylic paint. Lastly they outlined the design using a black marker. Faience pottery was popular in Egypt and it often had images of the lotus flower painted on it. Some students chose the lotus flower, while others drew their own designs.
