Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Materials Needed

For this project you will need:

-Any kind of polymer clay

-Spare wire

-Acrylic paint(black, brown, beige, and white)

Step 2: The Body

Make a ball of clay and with your fingers pinch in the shape of the body. Once you have done that flatten the top part where the head will go.

Step 3: The Legs

For the legs, make two small balls and roll them out to make the two front legs. Make sure to make little indents to shape the feet and toes. After that, make two bigger balls, flatten them and shape them.

Step 4: The Tail

The tail was really fun and easy to make, all you have to do is make a teardrop shape and curve the end a bit. If you don't want to make the tail really thick, you can make it around tin foil. Finally, insert a piece of wire in the back, stick the tail in and blend it in.

Step 5: The Mane

To make the mane, roll out some clay and wrap it around the neck. Once you have done that, pinch and fill in wherever you see fit.

Step 6: The Head

To make the head, make a ball a bit bigger than the one for the body and with a piece of wire, attach it on to the body. After you have attached it you can add some details to the face and attach the ears. Once that's all taken care of you can make a couple of small balls that will serve as the spikes of hair on Eevee's head. You can now bake it to your content.

Step 7: Painting Your Eevee

Now that you've finished sculpting your Eevee it's time to start painting away. Have fun and be creative!

TOO CUTE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have a quick question: Does polymer clay retain its pliability for long periods of time if it remains unfired, or does it dry out pretty quickly?

By the way, nice job on the Eevee!

It doesn't really try out quickly. That is only air dry clay. Polymer clay has an ability of having a long lasting structure if "not baked." If it is new like clay or old JUST KNEAD IT! That is the best way of getting it OK and back to it's good state!


Thank you :D and to answer your question I would say that as long as you keep the clay covered properly it should be fine usually the darker colors stay pliable way longer while lighter colors don't. I still have a year+ old piece of black fimo clay that's not even covered and it's still almost as soft as when I first bought it while some pieces of green, light blue, and white clay in the same conditions and age have long since dried out. I hope I helped :)

Thanks for the quick reply! It looks like this stuff will be useful for what I have in mind then. (A posable model for claymations and the like)

You're welcome :) and I forgot to say to be careful where you put it though because if left for a while on certain surfaces like plastic the plasticizer in the clay will melt it away. It's melted a bit of the plastic on my TV and the varnish on my dresser. Anyways good luck! :D
