Make Your Own


HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN BUTTERFLIES FROM CLAY
 

CERAMIC SUPPLIES

We recommend using white low-fired clay and glazes that can be obtained from a ceramic supply dealer.

  • If you are not able to find them in your local community, click here to find your nearest distributor of clay.
  • For glazes, we recommend using Mayco underglazes and top clear glaze. Click here for wholesale and retail distributors in the USA.

 

BUTTERFLY DESIGNS

IMG_0663.JPGWe recommend going to a local craft store to find butterfly-shaped cookie cutters, or designing your own shapes. Don’t be intimidated!

  • If you are not able to make your own butterflies from scratch, you can order butterflies from The Butterfly Project.
  • Butterflies ordered from The Butterfly Project are designed to be glazed and fired in kiln, or painted with acrylic paints if firing in a kiln is not an option.

   

LICENSING FEE

The Butterfly Project waives the licensing fee for any school or classroom purchasing kits. If you will be making your own butterflies, we do ask that you pay our nominal licensing fee. Click here for more information.
