Neptune                                              Saturn                                       Earth
Jupiter                                                  The Sun                              The whole solar system
So I had an extra credit project we could do anything.  I chose to make Christmas ornaments of the solarsystem.  So I did the sun and the 8 classical planets.  I had this clay I had made before so I took it and made the shapes (Circles)  I dyed some of the clay yellow for some of the planets and the sun.  Then I needed to paint them, but I didn't have any paint or money so I used food dye and nail polish.  It worked quite well. I just smeared the dye on top of the clay instead of working it in.  For jupiter I mixed red polish with yellow food dye for some of the stripes.  I was totally out of red food dye for mars so I used nail polish.  Lucky for me I have 2 colors of red polish and was able to do details.  My favorite is Neptune.  My least favorite is Mercury.  My favorite in real life is Jupiter just to clarify.
