Step 1: Tools & Colors

You will need:


  • Orange Clay
  • a small amount of pale green ( I mixed green with a bit of white.)

Roll out a ball of clay. Then poke a small hole in the top with the ball tool.

Step 3: The Lines

Take the ball tool and push down along the side of the pumpkin to make the lines.

Step 4: Smoothing the Sides

Now smooth the down the edges of the pumpkin with your fingers and the ball tool to make them more rounded.

Step 5: The Stem

Roll out a small piece of pale green clay into a cone-like shape and place on top of the pumpkin.

Step 6: Finishing Up

Take the ball tool and press the bottom stem into the grooves of the pumpkin. Then twist the stem a tiny bit to give it more realistic look.

Step 7: Baking

Bake in the oven at 275 °F for 15 minutes.

Step 8: Done!

There You have it! A polymer clay pumpkin. Perfect as a fall decoration.
