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.

I love this, and will most likely be making one, since I am, after all, Still Alive.
Question though. Can the companion cube make cake? Because I was once promised cake, and, it was a lie. :0(

:D mine won't make cake but it makes wicked pasta.
does the compainion cube have a tendancy to fall apart ; or is it pretty solid.
if i dropped it; would i lose my most loyal friend?

I have had mine for a while and its still all together. If you do a goodjob bonding the pieces before you cook them there should be no problem keeping it together :)
I actually made two dice sized companion cubes and attached earring hooks to the. They look really cool!

-disclaimer add on: if your companion cube stabs you, it's your fault.
so long as you're still alive, you can sue GLaDOS!

All Aperature Science equipment can withstand temperatures of up to 4000 Kelvin.
