Grab your clay and cut off a nice chunk. Put down some baking paper and roll the clay out nice and flat, I made mine 1/2cm thick.
I found a square box lid so used that like a cookie cutter to cut out the sides of my planter. If you don't have one you can use a ruler to measure and make sure all the sides are completely the same, then cut it out with a butter knife.
You need to wait until the sides are semi dry, this is so that they are still soft enough to score but hard enough to stand up without flopping over. Scoring the sides helps the box grip together, do this with a toothpick or knife.
Mix up some clay and water into a paste, use this on the sides to join the box. make sure you do it on the inside and outside. Smooth it all out using your hands and once all the sides are together leave it to dry for at least 24 hours in a mid temperature room.
Using a picture of the Question Mark Box for a reference, mix up the colours and paint the side we left blank. Use masking tape to mask around the bricks so you don't have any paint spilling over.
I painted the question Mark using transfer paper and a print out of the original blown up to size. I found this to be the easiest but you can use making tape to achieve this if you want.
