This week I was in my local craft store and my eye fell on the polymer clay. I always wanted to make my own cat of polymer clay and because I'm working on some larger projects, that never seem to finish, I bought some clay to finally make my cat Ronny. Small project, that's finished in less than an hour.
This is what you need:
Polymer clay in the color(s) of your cat
My cat is totally white, so I only used white clay. For the inside of his ears, his nose and his mouth I used pink paint, for his eyes I used black paint.
First make the cat's body, head, four paws, two ears, tail and four little balls for his snout (two little balls have to be a little bit larger than the other two little balls):
To make the cat's snout, stick the larger little balls next to each other on the head. The chin is formed by placing one of the little balls below the snout, the nose is formed by placing the other small ball above the snout.
Then place the ears. The head is now finished.
Place the four paws underneath the body.
Now place the head and the tail on the body.
The cat is now finished and can be put in the oven. You can read instructions about the temperature of the oven and baking time on the package of the clay. My clay package says 110 degrees Celsius for half an hour ( I use Fimo Clay).
After taking the cat out of the oven, let it cool off before you do the painting. I painted the inside of the ears, the nose and the lips pink and the eyes black. My cat Ronny wears a black collar with a little bell, so to make it more look-a-like I put a collar around his neck.
As you can see in this picture I not only made a standing, but also a sitting Ronny.
And here's the one and only!!
That's it! Good luck!
