How to Make

1. Cut a large oval from paper to create a template – it should be about 15cm long. Roll out 200g of clay between two layers of cling film, to about 5mm thick. place the template on top of the clay and cut around it with a blunt knife. Smooth the clay with your finger dipped in a little water.

2. Take the template and cut the top quarter away with a zig zag line to create the green top to the strawberry. Roll out the remaining clay between cling film as before, and place the new template on top. Cut out and press it in place onto the strawberry.

.3. Use the cling film to pick up the clay strawberry and place it into a bowl. Press down gently so that it forms the shape of the bowl. Leave for a few hours to harden, then lift out the bowl, remove the cling film and leave overnight to dry out.
