The children made their bells a few weeks ago.
See Clay Bells M13
I fired them in the kiln and today was a completion day. The children painted the clay bells with water colour paint, then with a damp cloth, they rubbed the bells to emphasis the indentations. The paint can't be rubbed out from the indentations.
They used a darning needle to thread through one hole in the top, then through the little clay ball they made, then back through the second hole in the top of the bell. They tied a bow to hold the ball in place.
They actually make a noise when shaken.
