1. Knead and soften clay.
Add ½ teaspoon kosher salt. Knead into clay.
2. Roll clay into a ball. Roll and taper a side for beak.
Place on flat surface. Pinch two wings from body sides. Pinch
tail from back. Press the edge of a piece of cardboard into
clay at an angle, just in front of tail for the recipe card
3. Place on an oven proof glass surface in a regular oven
at 275°F for 15 minutes per ¼” thickness.
DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. Let cool.

swab over design. The alcohol will smear the blue marker without
removing the pattern and leave the hen a very light blue color.
