Step 7: Make and Attach Robot's legs

Make four equal-sized balls of clay. They should be slightly larger than the balls you made for the arms. Roll the balls into thick, stubby tubes and flatten the ends by gently tapping the end against a table.

Attach the legs just like the arms--mark where you will attach each leg, scratch the surface of both the leg and the body with a pin, and use your toothpick to push clay from the sides of the legs into the body.

If your clay gets scratched up in the attachment process, roll your toothpick flat on the damaged area with a little bit of pressure. The clay will flatted right back out.
<p>These are really adorable :) </p>
These are way too cute!
I made this with sculpey III. The earrings were a great idea!! i made GIR earrings. Thanks for the idea!!! i cant wait to wear them at school.
I have a question about the polymer clay-<br><br>The polymer clay I bought is labeled &quot;Original Sculpey&quot;, and when I work with it it's super soft and really hard to hold without mushing, especially in the small size of an earring. Then I remembered another polymer clay, &quot;Sculpey III&quot; and am wondering is there any difference between the two (or three, but I've never heard of &quot;Sculpey II&quot;) in terms of usage, firmness, etc? Thanks~
I love the wii remotes very funny/cute. you should really think about making and selling these on etsy
Thank you! I make earrings to-order for anyone who requests it. Etsy is a great idea, but keeping up an etsy shop seems like so much work! I really admire people who have that patience and dedication.
Those Totoro earrings are so cute! Great instructable!
