- 1 tomato sauce can
- Air-drying Clay
Thoroughly wash and dry the tomato sauce can. Take the clay (about 3/8 inch thick) and wrap it around the can. Press the seashells into the wet clay. Allow to dry completely.
Tip: Air drying clay is craft clay that becomes a hard solid when allowed to air dry. Crayola makes a great air drying clay which is a natural white earth clay.
