This is my first instructable so i hope you like it!
In this instructable i will show you how to make a small penguin from clay.
Step 1: Materials
To make your penguin you need these materials:
1. Black, white, orange, and blue clay (i used sculpey III but any colored clay will do)
2. a knife
3.something flat and sharp
Step 2: Making the body
Take a lump of black clay and roll it into a ball. Then, press both ends down on the table. make it so that the top end is slightly skinnier then the other.
Step 3: Make the head
Take a small lump of black clay and roll it into a ball. make the top of the ball pointy and the bottom end match the size of the skinny end of the body. Put it on the penguins body and mold it there.
Step 4: Here's where it all starts to come together.
Up until now it really hasn't looked very much like a penguin. that is about to change. take a piece of white clay and flatten it out. cut it so it is an oval shape just smaller than the penguins stomach. then mold it on where you want the front to be. then, take a smaller piece of white clay and flatten it out. cut it into a round piece and put it on the penguins head.
Step 5: Make the face.
take a small piece of orange clay and shape it so it looks like a small ice cream cone. mold that towards the bottom of your penguin face. then take two tiny tiny pieces of any color clay you want to make the eyes, and then press those on.
Step 6: Make the feet and the arms
take some orange clay and flatten it out. Take the flat sharp thing (see materials) and cut two triangles. mold those to the bottom of your penguin. to make the arms, flatten out a piece of black clay and cut it so it is a small oval. make two of these. they should go to about the penguins neck to where the white part ends. i like to make the arms go across his chest.
