In order to make a ghost from polymer clay, follow these steps as a guideline and use your own creativity to come up with different variations of the same styled ghost.
- Condition your glow-in-the-dark clay.
- Roll clay into a ball about the size of a walnut.
- Sculpt that ball into a teardrop with a really pointy top.
- Gently bend & twist the pointy top into a curly “ghost like” swoosh!
- Add arms and some legs, making sure to blend the seams together.
- Add a nose and use little black seed beads for a eyes.
- Using a ball tool, add a ghost like mouth.
- If you choose, add some “cheeks” using one of your chalks.
- Note: Keep in mind that wherever you add chalk, there will be a “dark spot” there when your ghost “glows” at night due to the opaque obstruction caused by the chalk.
- Depending on the type of clay used (premo, sculpey, cernit): bake in the oven at 265 degrees, covered in foil, for approximately 45-60 minutes.
- NOTICE: Check your clay package instructions for appropriate baking times & temperatures.
