Step 1: Materials
•Oven Bake Clay
Crayola Model Magic
•Clay blade or thin knife
•Ridged Needle Nose Pliers
•Fabric Circle 2-3inches wide
•Something to flatten the clay -a rolling pin, water bottle, hair spray can etc. (optional)
Step 2: Snakes
Roll out 3 snakes-
Step 3: Flatten
You can use your hands or your roller. My hair spray can worked great!
Step 4: Halves
Then smooth them together.
They will now look like rectangular.
Step 5: Let's Get Rolling!
Step 6: More Rolling
Step 7: Still Rolling
Step 8: Slicing
Then, slice the snake into little pieces. Mine were about the thickness of a nickel.
You'll end up with a bunch of little clay coins.
Step 9: Disassemble
Step 10: Stick It!
Step 11: Last Roll!
Fill any small empty spaces with a bit of more clay and roll it again.
Also make sure to leave the ends open so you can get the ink stick back inside.
Step 12: Drying/ Baking
Let it dry as directed.
Then insert the ink stick again and you're ready to write!
If you used oven bake clay go to the next step.
Step 13: Baking
I did mine for 15min at 275°F
Now, I know what you're thinking, " You crazy woman! This pen is going to melt if goes in the oven!" And you're right, it will. No worries, my friends. I took the risk for you and I'll show you how to fix it.
Step 14: Sizing
Then, if the hole where the ink part goes has melted to be smaller, use your needle nose pliers to scrape it and make it big again.
Now, you COULD also just stick the ink part in DIRECTLY after taking it out of the oven but I don't advise handling hot clay. It burns.
Step 15: You're Done!
Step 16: The Dancer Pen
Step 18: Be a Wrapper
Step 19: The Bust
You will also need two pieces about the size of a pea.
Step 20: Heart
Step 21: Boobs
Step 22: Add It On
Bake according to the package of your clay.
Step 23: Tutu
Wrap it around the waist if your leotard and glue it.
And of course, lastly, put the ink stick back inside.
Step 24: Write On!
