Polymer Clay Chicken Tutorial

  • DIY Polymer Clay Chicken Figurine by KatersAcresStart by gathering the polymer clay you need: white, yellow, orange, and red.
  • Condition all your polymer clay pieces.
  • Choose a lump of yellow clay, about the size of a walnut, and run it through the pasta machine.
  • Cut out two teardrop shapes using a small Kemper cutter.
  • Set the teardrops aside.
  • Roll the remaining clay into a cone shape and invert it upside down for your basic chicken shape.
  • Add the two teardrops to the sides of the chicken as wings.
  • Roll your orange clay through the pasta machine on a medium setting (about a 5).
  • Cut out three star shapes (two for feet and one for his beak) using your Kemper cutters.
  • Attach the orange feet to the bottom of the chicken and press tightly to secure them to the chicken.
  • Now decorate the chickens face using a “splotch” of white behind the eyes, red eyebrows & gobbler, as well as two black seed beads for eyes.
  • Bake at 265 degrees for 45-60 minutes covered in foil.
