Step 1: Materials

Picture of Materials

TOOLS:
- A needle
- Pliers
- Oven
- Bread pan or other deep, oven-safe pan
- Paintbrush

MATERIALS:
- White polymer clay. I tried out a kind called "Bake Shop" that was less than half the cost of Sculpey III or Fimo, and while it was much softer than I am used to, it seems to have come out stronger after baking. Plus at only $1 for the same sized block as the $2.75 blocks of Sculpey and Fimo, I will probably use this clay from now on.
- Acrylic paints in red, white, yellow, and black
- Clear nail polish
- Wire

Step 2: Draw your angry design

Picture of Draw your angry design
It always helps me to draw out the design of my shapes and break it all down into very simple forms. I've found that doing this little drawing really saves time and thought process later.

Step 3: Body, Eyes, and Angry Eyebrows

Roll two same-sized balls of clay for the bodies of the birds.

Roll four small same-sized balls for the birdie eyeballs. Use a needle or toothpick to mark where you will put the eyes and make sure it is all evenly spaced. Scratch the surface of the body around the toothpick mark and scratch a small area on each eyeball. Pressing the scratched areas together, flatten the eyeballs onto the body.

Roll four tiny same-sized balls for the black of the eyes and press onto the eyeballs.

Make four small snakes, score the forehead and the snakes, and press above the eyes to make angry eyebrows.

I couldn't find Bake Shop at Michaels...anywhere else I could get it (preferably with coupons? XD) ?

You can probably get it at Joann's, Hobby Lobby, or online. Joann's and Hobby Lobby usually have coupons as well.
Thanks so much! Just made some.

Neat Painting...soooo sweeeet...!!!
Those are adorable! Two questions, where do you get your "Bake Shop" clay, and do you find the jump rings to be strong enough to stay on the clay?
Nice Instructable! :)

Bake Shop is a brand of Sculpey; most craft stores carry Sculpey clay (I think Bake Shop is specifically their holiday line).

I've never had good luck with plain jump rings into clay...instead I found these rings attached to a threaded pin (like to screw into the top of something) at Joanns, I use those for clay figures. :)

I will definitely have to keep an eye out for those screw-in rings, those sound awesome. Thanks for the tip!
Thanks! I found the Bake Shop clay at my local Joann Fabrics. It is Sculpey brand's clay that is made and marketed for children.

I have had a lot of luck with regular jump rings and clay with all my earrings.Just make sure that at least half the ring is fully enclosed in clay and that you are attaching clay pieces together with the scratching method. What I usually do now is get a straight wire with a ring at the end, stick it in the clay and pull it back out, bake the clay, add a drop of superglue to the wire, stick it back into the clay, and add one more drop of super glue at the entrance point of the wire

Good luck in your creating!

Wow, thank you so much. Painting is my passion!

But, to answer your question, I am not awesome at tennis.
