Step 1: Materials

To make this, you will need:

  • black and white oven-bake clay
  • aluminum foil
  • clay modeling tools

Step 2: Prep White Clay

First, roll your white clay to make it soft and pliable.

Step 3: White Stuff

From there, mold the clay into the shape of the Ghostface's face.

Step 4: Features

Now, break apart some black clay and use it for his eyes, nose, and mouth.

Step 5: Black Cape

From that point, roll out some black clay and mold it around the face to look like his actual cape.

Step 6: Dimension

Finally, break off a little bit more of the white clay to add some dimension to his face.

Step 7: Bake the Ghost

Now, bake the ghost according to the clay package directions. My clay bakes at 275 degrees for 15 minutes. When it's ready, take it out to cool off.

Step 8: Glaze

From there, just spray on a layer of gloss varnish, let dry, and it's done!

Step 9: Boo!

Perfect as a Halloween decoration, this is one ghostly creation that would make anyone "Scream"!
