Pinterest! DIY clay cutting wire tool

31 Jan

Pinterest saves the day! My ancient clay cutting wire tool broke in the middle of 5th grade clay today.


Fortunately, I had pinned some great DIY clay tool photos from The Teaching Palette.


I made my wire cutter on the fly from Two binder clips and 26 gauge floral
wire (left over from wire sculpture).

Thanks Teaching Palette for a great blog post. And thanks to Pinterest for a quick way to retrieve it.

    You can also use dental floss to cut clay. It has helped me out many times.

      Lisa –

      Great idea! I will buy some for the art room. I can also distribute it easily to all my tables.
