Introduction: Batman Logo Spinner Toy

About: I graduated from Cardonald College with an Advanced Diploma in Graphic Design in 1999. He has worked as a Tattoo Artist, Community Artist, and Freelance Artist ever since. I like making instructables that ...

"Always be yourself..... Unless you can be Batman, Then be Batman."

Back again with another fidget spinner toy. I had seen a few batman spinners on YouTube and one in particular struck me as pretty cool but used resin and paint so i decided to "low tech it" and hopefully make it a bit more accessible.

This instructable, is super quick, super easy and can be done in various shapes not just Batman.

Lets begin...

Step 1: What You'll Need

Materials

A Clean bearing from a skate or skateboard. again this was one of a hand full that i was given from a local Skate shop, as long as it still spins freely it's usable.

Black polymer Clay

Tools

A Batman cookie cutter - There are loads available to by at reasonable prices. The one i got was a little narrow in the centre but i preferred the shape. I will tell you how i got around that shortly

Baking tray (not pictured)

Oven (not pictured)


Optional

An acrylic sheet to work on. I picked up a cheep cutting mat from a budget store

An Acrylic rolling pin - I used this to give it a smoother finish

Step 2: Making It

Split your polymer clay and place the bearing in the centre.

Work the clay around the bearing ensuring that the joins are well merged.

Spread out the clay so the cutter will fit on the area keeping it as close to the thickness of the bearing as possible.

Place the cookie cutter over the clay with the bearing in the centre and cut out your batman shape

Due to the particular shape of this cookie cutter I felt it was a bit narrow around the bearing so i added some clay just to thicken up these parts.

Once this was done pop it on the baking tray and bake it as per your brand of polymer clay's instructions

Step 3: Finished!

Once it comes out of the oven, let it cool thoroughly as I was a bit too eager and it snapped as you can see in the second picture, I glued it together and it still works great but i made a second one and had no issues

NOTE: this particular cookie cutter made the spinner a bit big for children's hands but there are loads of different sizes available and its a great fit for adult hands.

Done!
