Step 1: Materials Needed
White: S302 001
Black: S302 042
Emerald: S302 323
Just Orange: S302 1634
Yellow: S302 072
Sculpey® Tools (Mine came with the Sculpey® Crafty Clay Variety Pack I bought)
Sculpey® Clay Conditioning Machine
Sculpey® Acrylic Roller
Sculpey® Clay Softener
Step 2: Fish Body
Take your orange sculpey and shape it in the form of a fish. For the body you are going for an egg shape then fan out to a triangle. In the middle of the long part of the triangle push inward to get the fish tail shape.
Step 3: Mouth
Step 4: Fins
Step 5: Attach the Fins
Step 6: X for Eyes
Step 7: Details
Later I added lines in the fins and in the tail, but it is 100% okay to do that step now.
Step 8: Funeral Flowers
For the flower tops roll out six small white balls and flatten them. Roll out six yellow balls half the size of the white balls and flatten those on top of the white. Place the flower top on top of the green stem. After the three are attached flip it over and do the same with the other tops. Press together. If you like you can then take a tooth pick and make true peddles. I was going for a very cartoon look so I opted not to do this.
Step 9: Fins and Flowers
Step 10: Back Fin
Step 11: Bake It!
Take Directly from Sculpey®'s Website:
Bake at 275 °F (130 °C) for 15 minutes per 1/4 in (6 mm) thickness. DO NOT MICROWAVE. Baking should be completed by an adult. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
My fish got the pleasure of being baked with Yoda...Yoda seems unsure if this was a good plan.
Do make sure when you bake your fish that you have him standing like you want it to look when you are done baking it.
Step 12: Display Your Fish
Use it in a magic trick
Give it to a friend who can't seem to even keep a plant alive
Put it out in your home or at work as a conversational piece
Step 13: Size Matters?
Enjoy and I can't wait to see your fish!
