TIPS:

  • Use tacky glue at tips of toothpicks before inserting into clay.

  • Use water to smooth clay before it dries.

  • Use hand lotion (on hands) so clay does not stick to hands.

 

DIRECTIONS:

Use the Hearty clay color scale to measure out the sizes of clay indicated for the different parts of the bunny.

Measure out "I" in white Hearty clay for the bunny's head. Roll into a ball, then flatten and shape into a slight triangular shape. Measure out two "E" balls of white clay for the muzzle. Place on the lower third of the face, slightly flattening.

Measure out a "A" ball of black clay. Divide in half and roll into two small balls for the eyes. Place on the face above the muzzle.

Mix a small amount of red and white clay to form a desired shade of pink. Measure out an "A" ball of the pink clay, save the rest for the ears. Roll into a ball and place on top of the middle of the muzzle for the nose.

Measure out two "G" balls of white clay for the ears. Roll each ball into a teardrop shape about an inch long and flatten slightly. Measure out two "E" balls of pink clay for the inner ears. Roll each all into a teardrop shape about 3/4" long and slightly flatten. Center and place inner pink ears onto the white ears. Shape ears with the skinnier end being the top. Attach ears to the top of the head. Use small pieces of craft picks and tacky glue to help adhere ears to the head.

Measure two "G" balls of white clay for the paws. Roll each into a ball then slightly flatten and shape into small rounded triangles. Place on either side below bunny's head for paws. Attach to head with small pieces of craft picks and tacky glue.

Mix small amounts of yellow and red clay to form a desired shade of orange for the carrot. Measure out an "H" ball of orange clay. Roll clay into a log piece about 5" long. Take one end of the log and begin to coil into a carrot shape. Remove excess clay. Measure a "B" ball of green clay for the carrot top. Roll clay into a log. make a hole in the top of the carrot. Place loops of the green clay in the top of the carrot for the leafy top. Remove excess clay. Let bunny dry. Glue pin back behind bunny's ears.
