Introduction: Custom Kirby Usb Flash Drive

I had a flash drive with a broken plastic case, so rather than tossing out the innards, I decided to use some Sculpey clay and make a new body for it.

I used "Sculpey III" clay, numbers 503 (Hot Pink), 303 (Dusty Rose), 001 (white), and 042 (black). I also used a broken PNY Attache flash drive. (You can use any flash drive you may have lying around)

Step 1: Clay Time...

For this step, I took a strip (there are four strips per block) of both the hot pink clay and of the dusty rose. I then split both strips in half. With both sets of two, I mixed the hot pink and dusty rose together to make the solid pink on the main picture.

I pushed each mixture into a 5x5 inch circle, and placed the flash drive into one of them. On the other circle, I made small ovals with the black clay for the eyes, followed by small white dots at the top of each eye. For the mouth and cheeks, I took a tiny bit of the hot pink clay to make two ovals for the cheeks, and a half circle for the mouth.

You can now place the top circle on the one with the flash drive in it. (make sure there is no air between the two circles, as the bubbles will be there after you bake it.) Now use your finger to smooth the edges together.

Step 2: Heating Time...

Use a toaster oven set to 275 degrees, and place your Kirby on a piece of tin foil. Bake him for 7 minutes. When it is done, do not remove it right away, IT WILL BE HOT! When it is cool to the touch, place it in the room for about 10 minutes so that the clay has time to harden on the inside, and so the metal usb contact has time to cool.

Step 3: You're All Set!

You are all set now! Your Kirby should be all set to use, and you can show him off to all of your friends.
