Next we'll start building the coral and reef creatures to add on. I encourage students to add on at least five different elements and to cover the entire surface with texture. I also give students lots of images of coral reefs to inspire ideas. Besides interestingly shaped and textured corals and seaweeds, students like to add on crabs or eels, sometimes a baby octopus or little fish. Make sure that all the elements you build are scratched-to-attached on to the reef well. You can also move the octopus' arms to wrap around the items that you add on. Encourage students to continue to turn their sculptures around and view them from all sides, making sure that they have interesting elements from every point of view. Once glazed, these sculptures are safe to put into a fish tank as handmade decoration if you'd like!
