Trace and cut out turtle body and shell

into one ball and place onto the roller boards. Use the 1/16” rails to
roll out the clay and make it at least 3” x 3” to fit the pattern. Place
the pattern for the turtle body onto the clay. Use the knife tool to cut
out the piece from the clay. Smooth the edges of the clay. Set aside.
