How to Make Clayduino

Picture of How to Make Clayduino
I love to make a cool project with Arduino. And play with clay is also easy and fun. Then why not to make the replica of our Arduino. So today I will show you how to make a replica of an Arduino

Okay, let's get started!

Step 1: Materials and tools

You will need:

Clay*:

- Dark Blue
- Grey
- Red
- Black
- White

You just need the right color. If you don't have the right color, just mix one color with other color.
(in my case, it's kinda difficult to find the right color, so I just mix the clay with acrylic paint color)

Tools:
- Scissors
- Cutter
- X-Acto knife
- Tweezers

Step 2: Getting Started

Step 1
Print out the picture of Arduino with the same exact size. Then cut the picture with scissors. (see image 1)

Step 2
I mix the blue clay with acrylic paint (Phthalo Blue) color. Then I get the same blue color like an Arduino had. (see image 2)

Step 3
Warm up the clay with your hands. Then flatten the clay. (see image 3)

Step 4
Put the Arduino picture that we cut before onto the clay. (see image 4)

Step 5
Cut it neatly with cutter or X-acto knife, and be careful. Just try to not ruin the shape.(see image 5)

This is a really funny project :D When I saw this, I started wondering if somebody will come up with something like Arduino cookies in the future lol. Looking at the other comments, it seems I'm not the only one to have thought of edible Arduinos.

Perhaps somebody will make a Raspberry Pi raspberry pie?
faziefazie (author)  ffcabral6 months ago
Yes that will be absolutely possible one day :)

Maybe I should take a pastry class soon hahahaha :D

This looks great! On my first glance, I thought you had just put clay on top of a real arduino or something. Looks very much like what it models.

That is one incredible job. They look so good they might even take code and run.

Nice job, how about next project- Arduino Cake! Thanks for posting.
faziefazie (author)  bob30306 months ago
Nice idea, but i'm not a good cook (yet!) :p
But I'll try to learn baking cake with my mom, and maybe make an Arduino cake for my next birthday. hahaha

Thank you for the idea, appreciate it greatly :)
I love it!
