Burnished Clay Zentangle Snow Globe

 Draw the zentangle pattern you would like to draw on your clay snow globe. It can be a Thanksgiving or Christmas theme zentangle snow globe. You need to have at least some real things tangled up with your abstract zentangle, line, doodle, patterns.
Start out with clay by making the most perfect 2 pinch pot globe you can make. When it is as perfect as you can make it, carve your zentangle patterns in the clay. Not to deep.
Paint parts with red slip and burnish the globe by rubbing it until it shines.
Make a base with 2 circle coils for the globe to sit on.
Name and period on both clay parts.
