Cute & Adorable:
Spring brings all kinds of fun things, including planting gardens … which for me always brings to mind the farm. So this week stay tuned to get two awesome, cute, & fun farm animals. This chicken is super cute, super easy, and you’ll love it so much you will make a whole brood of chickens! Make them in dozens of colors and sizes and have some fun with this DIY polymer clay chicken figurine.
Polymer Clay Chicken Tutorial
- Start 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.
