How To Make Face Jugs
First off, prepare a borwn clay vessle and lid, firm them, and make white clay eye balls and teeth
Second, press in eye sockets and place eye balls at the top, positioning the distance between each eye ball however you would like. Then press in the class to form a mouth
Next, flatten fat coils for eye lids and use smaller coils for bottom of eyes. Then smooth around the sockets to hold in the eyeballs. Use a sponge to add your finishing touches
After, form a nose with the clay. Slip the nose on and smooth the sides of it. Use a tool and make bumps at the side of the nose to give your nose some nostrils.
Now we need to make a mouth. Create small teeth with the clay and press the teeth into small coil for guns. Show some of the bottom teeth and try to add gums underneath by smoothing the clay.
Sit and wait for the clay to stay in place. And you are finally done!
