Happy Holidays!!!! We are excited about this holiday season. This year we will observe the non-religious holiday, Kwanzaa. In preperation for the celebration, I decided to create a simple kinara using oven-bake clay. You're probably thinking, that a traditional kinara is usually composed of wood. While you are correct, I do not have the time or tools to carve one out of wood. Thus I used a more "elementary" medium. If you're interested in seeing how I created the kinara, check out the steps below.
16 oz. of Oven Bake Clay
Craft Acrylic Paint
(6) 9.5" Tapers in green and red
(1) 12.5" Taper in Black
Step 1. I used a ruler to make sure the candles would be evenly spaced apart. Then I cut the clay and measured it lenghtwise over the ruler. It measured at 10.5 inches.
Make sure to explore our website to find art resources for Kwanzaa. Have a wonderful Holiday Season!
