Do you like mazes, but can't find one challenging enough? Then make your own!

You will need:
  • Clay
  • Pencil
  • Cling Film
  • Bead
  • Plastic Spoon
  • Paint
For this Art Attack you need to get hold of some self-hardening clay.

Most art shops sell it, as well as some toy shops and newsagents.
Take a big ball and roll it out flat onto an old tray or board.

It needs to be about 1cm to 1.5cm thick.
Now design a maze!

Take a pencil or paintbrush, and use the end to draw the design into the clay.
Start with the correct path through the maze, but don't make any of the curves too tight.

Then to make some false paths, just draw lines coming off of the correct pathway into other areas.
Make sure the lines aren't too close together.
Next dig out the paths using the handle of a plastic spoon.

Do a small area at a time and cover the rest of the clay in cling film to prevent it hardening.

The paths should be wide enough for a bead or marble to go down.
Take your time with this.

If you like, use a bead or marble to check the path is wide enough.
You might want to smooth the channels out with your finger as you go along.

When you've done one section move the cling film and do another.
Leave your maze to dry and harden.

When dry, you can paint it.
The colours are up to you.

You could paint it green just like a real garden maze...
...or you could do any other design you like, with any colours you like!
Let your imagination go wild!

Try it yourself!
