Introduction: Make Your Own Claws

Picture of Make Your Own Claws

Easy fun way to make your own claws!

Step 1: You Need

Picture of You Need

You need molding wax, a paint brush, and colors that will match whatever claws you might make. I'm making werewolf claws so I decided my zombie dirt (light brown and dark brown powder) would do the trick.

Step 2: First

Picture of First

grab a little bit of wax and roll it into a ball. you're going too want to play with it to soften it up. if it starts sticking to your hands just apply some lotion.

Step 3: Apply

Picture of Apply

apply the wax to your nail and remove any access.

Step 4: Shape

go ahead and shape it however you want, I did a pointed look.

Step 5: Last Step

I used the light brown to make it look dirty then the dark brown for texture.

This is unique. Can we use modelling clay for this?

MsMaoMaoz (author)sabu.dawdy2015-10-02

I have not tried clay, but I'm sure it would be just fine.

clear nail polish or clear coat would work to keep the shape and color. tacky glue to keep them on.

YesYes. Thank you.

How durable are the nails?

MsMaoMaoz (author)PandaPirate2015-09-23

Not very, if you put something on top that will harden around the mold it would be just find though. I just didn't because I wasn't wearing them out.

NathanSellers (author)2015-09-22

does it dry to hardness?

MsMaoMaoz (author)NathanSellers2015-09-23

You would need to put something on top.

Does it stay on the nails? Anyway, great instructable ?

MsMaoMaoz (author)Sheldy1232015-09-22

You have to be careful but it will stay, it's kinda like temporary stick on nails you buy at the store.
