Instructions:

  • Polymer Clay Pumpkin Tutorial by KatersAcres | Can Also Be Used for Fondant, Gumpaste, Clay, or other Sculpting MediumsCondition your clay fully
  • Use any size ball of clay that you want your pumpkin to be.
  • Roll into a perfect ball and set it on your work surface.
  • Using your dotters (or the end of a paint brush as shown) poke a gentle hole in the top of your circle.
  • Using a needle tool place the tool on the top ridge of the opening and ROLL the round toward the bottom.
  • Repeat this process as many times as you want until your pumpkin has the rounded “pumpkin” look.
  • NOTE: I generally make 8-9 segments per pumpkin.
  • Then sculpt a simple leaf shape and insert it into one side of the hole.
  • Make a simple stem and also push it into the hole.
  • That’s it – you’re done!
  • Bake your pumpkin according to the directions on the package!
