Intro: Polymer Clay Car
- polymer clay
- knife tool (I use a Victorinox knife)
Step 1: The "body" of the Car
Start with a piece of black (or whatever color you want your car to be) clay and shape the body of the car. Then get a piece of translucent clay and shape a cube. Put the cube on top of the body, this will be the windows
Step 2: The Details
To make the flatten out a piece of gray clay and make the shape of the grill. Draw the lines to make it look realistic.
Roll out two pieces of whatever color clay the car is. You will need these later.
Make a black rectangle to fit on the cube, this will be the roof.
Step 3: The Wheels
Make four black circles, and four gray ones( the gray ones should be smaller). Make the black circles the size of the wheels. Put them together.
Step 4: Put It Together
Start by placing the roof on top of the car.
Cut the rolled out clay into small bits to make the window design.
Put the bits of rolled out clay on the translucent clay vertically to make the windows.
The other rolled out clay will be the bumper of the car.
Place the grill on the front of the car.
Step 5: Bake
Bake at whatever temperature and time indicated on the clay wrapper.
You should put the wheels on after you've baked the car because they might get squashed if they're on while baking. I used super glue to get them on.
