Welcome to another Wacky Workshops project – magnificent muddy masterpieces.
Mud has been used in artworks for thousands of years and there is a good reason. It is a wonderful medium.
If you read my post, How to Increase Health and Happiness by Playing in Mud, you will know that getting dirty is good for you.
It is also fun to work with.
Soil can create a range of shades of black, brown, red, orange, yellow and white – perfect for painting.
Mud containing clay is wonderful for making sculptures.
This week’s projects include mud painting, mini mud buildings using homemade mud bricks, and seed bombs – a fun gift for gardeners.
