     I did this project with 5 years old out of red mexican air dry
    clay. Only one sun was damaged- as the little girl kept smashing it
    down thinner and thinner. (might I say most mature child and held
    back from kindergarten by her parents and really needed more
    challenging projects) Anyway, of course her sun's tips broke off.
    She made a second one and was very careful not to have thin rays!
    Sometimes they just need to find out for themselves
    (especially with clays)
    I either sprayed matte gloss or brushed glue over them.
