Today I was looking at my old switch plate and I decided to do a little project with it.
It's a screaming switch plate as you can see :)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: First Step, the Teeth!
First of all, you will need some clay, or polymer clay to sculpt some teeth.
You can do as many as you want, I made 6 of them for each side of the mouth.
Next, you have to bake them in the oven with the propre time depending on the material you're using.
Step 2: Second Step, the Gum!
After you got your harden teeth, place a small amount of clay on the top of the switch plate to create the gum.
Then, place your teeth into it, and make it look like real gum, like if their bases were burried inside the gum.
Step 3: Third Step, Repeat Step 2 But for the Other Side
Third step, repeat step 2 but for the other side now
Step 4: Fourth Step, the Lips
With some clay, add lips to that mouth.
When it's done, add some skin for the cheek.
Now you have to bake it if you're using polymer clay, or let it dry if it's air-dry clay.
Thanks to Void Schism to let me know this step was missing :)
Step 5: PAINT IT!
Next step is to paint it.
Be creative! you can make it look gross like a zombie or like a normal human too.
If somebody do that project and wanna try a different look than mine, let me know by posting the link of your project picture in the comments please :D
Step 6: Almost Done!
An unnecessary step you can do, is to add some liquid latex to the skin parts, and some crystal clear acrylic to the teeth and gum.
Step 7: It's Done!
Now you've your own screaming switch plate!
*Bonus* you can add a tongue over the switch :)
