so all oven baked clay is kind of hard. word of advice, be patient. it softens as you play with it in your hands. i wanted the pots small, but bigger than the ones i saw on pinterest. so i used a whole block of clay. for these pots, i rolled both into a ball, then molded it to the shape i wanted, then scooped out the center with the melon baller. next i baked them at 275 degrees for 25 min. let them cool for a couple hours, then paint!
