I guess this kind of counts - I made an ocarina back in high school. Basically it's really easy and really fun.

I learned how to do this from the Complete encyclopedia of crafts.

To make your own it really isn't hard once you understand the process, if you've played a wind instrument you shouldn't have a problem with the reed, otherwise it might take you a little bit of time/frustration, but you'll be really happy once it works.

I made a turtle, my mouth piece is done wrong because I'm stubborn. The green is glaze and underglaze, the brown in the grooves on the shell, the finger holes and the swirl are acrylic. I carved and etched my ocarina after it had been drying for a few days, but I would suggest doing anything while it is still a little bit moist






Good luck! Hope that helps anyone who wants to make one.

I would love to make one! But I don't have access to a kiln over the summer... not that I would know how to use it for clay... do you think polyclay or air dry clay would work?

You know i've never tried, but if you could seal your joints pretty well it might work. Good luck if you do try it  Wink

I'm not sure that you can post patterns, instructions and photos from a book without permission from the author/designer because it might infringe on the copyrights.

Considering how old the book is, the copyright may not be in effect anymore.

Copyrights in the US are for the author's lifespan +70 years usually. At least for the older stuff.

You finished project is great! I love turtles and yours is musical!
It would be best if you take your own pictures as you don't want to get in trouble for posting pictures from a book.  Photo's have their own copyright laws.
