Update: Yes after my student recreated their drawing with the clay coils. They do this by making it right on top of there drawing. When they are done they smooth out. The. I would take a rib, and make sure they were really smooth and combined. So when you flip it over you get your design. The only problem I had is when they are drying they curled a bit. So I think if I would make sure the smooth size was facing they would curl so much.

Coil, slab flowers. Update
Well I been trying to do new clay projects each year. So instead of doing fish with my 3rd graders. I went with flowers. My students did a drawing on a 6x6 inch square and only using lines to make there flowers. They I had my student roll coils out and recreate there drawing. We smooth it all out and combine them all together. After they were fired we coloed them with crayons and put black paint over it and then washed it all. I love doing that with the clay. Over all a great project.
