Hey hey hey! ^.^ Today I'm going to show you how to make your very own DIY clay phantom figurine! This was super fun and easy to make (although I nearly burned the house down), and I hope it's the same way for you. Let's get cookin'!
What You'll Need:
- Black polymer clay
- White polymer clay
- A place mat
- Hot glue (optional)
- Mod Podge (optional)
Preheat your oven based on what kind of polymer clay you are using. I used Sculpey polymer clay and preheated my oven to 275 degrees and baked it for 15 minutes.
Step 1: Take a medium-sized chunk of black polymer clay and mold it into a relatively thick pancake-ish shape.
Step 2: Take another chunk of black polymer clay and split it in half. Mold each half into little phantom legs.
Step 3: Repeat step 2.
Step 4: Take a small chunk of white polymer clay and mold it into a thin pancake shape (tinier than the black pancake shape) and stick it right on top of the black pancake shape.
Step 5: Take a super tiny chunk of black polymer clay and roll it into a tiny ball. Place it on top of the white clay.
Step 6: Assemble your phantom and gently place it on a cookie sheet. Stick it in the oven based on the instructions included with your clay.
*If some of the parts to your phantom break off, fix it up with some hot glue.*
*If your polymer clay is not colored/lost some of its color during the baking process, paint it.*
*If you want to add some shine to your figurine, paint it with some mod podge.*
Ta-da! Now you have a cute lil' phantom charm! :D It might have been more fitting to save this DIY for October (Night of the Phantoms month!), but why not post it now? :p
