Form the clay shapes

Paint the clay
Place the masking tape or painter's tape at a diagonal on the tray, as shown in the picture. Also, place tape on the bottom of the geometric shapes. Then, use the paintbrush to paint the acrylic paint on the shapes and the edge of the tray. Let the paint dry completely. Then, use the hot-glue gun and glue sticks to attach the geometric shapes to the tray. Use caution when using a hot-glue gun!
