Psychadelic Polymer Animals
Let's get wierd!
Gather your polymer clay, acrylic paints, and paint brushes.
1
Soften and roll each one into a ball.
2
Roll your clay over clay crumbles for a speckled effect.
3
Make "snakes" of multiple colors for a marbled effect
4
Twist them together then roll. Fold in half, twist swirled snake more, then roll.
5
Now you should have several balls to roll into animals.
6
Now flatten into a thick disc and shape into a roumded rectangle.
7
Pull each corner out to start forming appendeges...
8
Pull out the head and neck, a small nub for a tail, and the bottom two corners for legs.
9
Now separate each of the legs into two.
10
Use the barrel of your paint brush if needed.
11
Don't get too wrapped up in the shape - in the end your animal will be slightly amorphous.
12
Bake at 230 deg F for 15 min.
13
Get your paints ready while you wait.
14
You can paint a colorful rug on their back.
15
Now you're ready to paint!
16
Or maybe a sassy lil' fanny pack!
17
The options are endless.
18
If you want to apply a gloss coat use something water-based like Mod Podge.
19
Before you know it you'll have a little animal herd of your own!
