Step 1: Materials
Get a pencil or skewer, your choice of sculptyIII ( I reccomend colours like oranges and browns ), and a oven or toaster oven.
Step 2: Make the Parts
make the body by makeing a water bottle shape , two corner pipes that thin to a dull point on one end, a nose out of a triangular prism that thins one one end (not to a dull point, like on the arms), and a belt, by rolling a long,thin,tube.
Step 3: Make a Face
Put the nose on so it curves onto the top of the head a little and use the skewers to poke 3 holes , for eyes and a mouth. To add to realism look at the off centerd holes of a bowling ball and space the 2 top fingere holes apart. now put that image in your mind and put it on the face. it also gives the haniwa some personality.
Step 4: Attach the Haniwas Belt
Put one end of the belt on the lower body and loop it around so both ends touch. This is also not neccesary but adds to the realism. it also makes them look different when consturcting a Haniwa Garden.
Step 5: Attach the Arms
To finish your Haniwa stick on arms by putting the right arm across the chest with the point end facing the left, and put the right arm up like in the given image. Now put in oven or toaster oven and bake for 15- 30 minutes or given time on polymer clay package
