I wanted to make some little penguins so I bought some clay and started modeling the little guys.
Here's how to do it.
First buy some clay at your local craft or hobby shop.
Make sure you get the clay you can bake and not the remoldable clay - which doesn't harden and can always be squished back into a pile of clay.
Then make a pear shaped object out of your clay.
After you've made the pear shaped object, cut out some wings and stick them on the sides.
After you have the wings, you need eyes, feet and a beak.
Stick the beak, feet and eyes on to the pear shaped figure. Rub them into the figure at the connections. Then bake the little guy - per directions on the clay package.
When he is finished baking, add a little paint or you can use markers.
Before you bake him, you can smooth him a bit. I accidently made indentations in his body with my fingernails.
I think this little guy is cute but I want to practice a bit so I can make a little penguin pond in my garden ;D I think kids walking past my little "pond" will think it's fun.
