This is an Instructable on how to make a little Weighted Companion Cube that you can carry around with you.
Now you can inconspicuously carry around your own Weighted Companion Cube for any time that you may feel alone or lonely.
The Weighted Companion Cube is ESPECIALLY great for people who don't have anyone to share Valentines day with. The Companion Cube is a perfect and loyal friend.
When your done, not only will you feel satisfied with your accomplishment, but you will have a new best friend that WILL NEVER STAB YOU.
Step 1: Equipment
The most important thing you will need to make you Companion Cube is clay.
I prefer to use sculpey clay.
for my instructable I used:
- Black clay
- White clay
- Pink clay
I bought my clay on sale so it was only about 5 dollars but the general cost should be around 7 or 8 dollars if you need to buy new clay. The good news is that you will have leftover clay when all said and done. probably enough to make a couple more cubes (depending on how large you make yours). My cubes are a little bigger than a dice.
I like Black and White because they give you more bang for your buck. But if you want to speed up the process you can buy Gray instead of Black. you will just use the gray for the body of the cube, and gray mixed with white for the edges of the cube.
some things that will help you make your cube are:
- A hard surface to work on with a smooth surface so the clay doesn't stick
- An Exacto knife (or any other sharp skinny knife) if you want to cut or manipulate the clay in a more finite manner.
- Access to an Oven. A must.
-ALSO, IN STEP 8 IF YOU CAN NOT MAKE THE TINY PINK CLAY HEARTS YOU WILL NEED A VERY FINE PAINT BRUSH AND PINK PAINT.
