Use a bakeable clay, and a small sea shell
Break the clay in half, it should be a little larger than the shell and twice as thick
and then roll into a ball. Make sure that there are no cracks.
Begin to form the head by pinching and smoothing.
Use a small knife to cut the sides into arms
The end area you can pinch off into a tail, shape the arms and legs as you do this.
Then place the shell on top making sure that the clay goes in fairly deep
so that it will not fall off.
Add eyes with different colored clay and a smile, and then smooth out all cracks.
the clay instructions say. The shell stays on during the baking process.
And then add a thick base coat. You can then add other designs on your turtles shell.
Spray or paint on a gloss or acrylic sealer afterwards.
