As said creativity is the master of all arts. Making candy corn out of polymer clay is quite easy and it is an excellent project for just about any age group. These little polymer clay candy corns are so cute and are great for adding to all sorts of decorations and other things. You could use them to embellish things like frames magnets candles or even for adding to scrapbooking pages. Supply List: - Polymer clay (yellow orange white) - I normally use the Sculpey brand Clear acrylic sealer (optional) Instructions: 1. Warm up each color of clay by rolling and kneading it until it feels soft. Now roll each color out until it s about 1/4" thick. Now press the three rolls together with white on top orange in the middle and yellow on the bottom. 2. Find a thin sharp edge such as a thin piece of cardboard to use to slice through the clay.
You can use a cardboard box in making a scary coffin. Also get a large-size cardboard piece and cut out the shape of a coffin for the opening/cover. Paint a red or white cross over the top of the coffin. You can imitate the sound of stepping over a mass of bones by drying bread in the oven and placing them under an area rug. Cut out stone hedges out of Styrofoam paint them gray and write R.I.P. over them with a marker. You can also write your names or guest s names for that spooky feeling. Make body parts by stuffing rubber/latex gloves with cotton and painting the opening red for that bloody effect. For a realistic touch to your home decor you can fill goblets with blood and display them in hallways and your dining area! This will enhance that vampire-in-coffin feel.
Skeletons Legs The skeleton legs like the arms have string running through them. As before double the string up and wrap around a peg half so that the string slots into the groove that the spring grabbing bit of metal once was. Make a loop and feed the remaining string through the loop so that the peg half is attached to the end of the string (shaped side up). This is the skeleton s foot. Make the shin like the forearm with two peg halves the tapered end pointing towards the foot. The thigh starts off in the same way as the upper arm with two peg halves sandwiching the string and the rounded part meeting the rounded part of the shin. On top of this two more peg halves are attached. Join these peg halves with their rounded ends glued to the tapering pegs of the upper arm like pegs and stick their tapered tip together with the string sandwiched between.
Leave the string thread long on the legs. Make two legs alike and leave to one side to dry. Skeletons Shoulder Blade Take the main skeleton part with the spoon and ribs and place it face down on the table. Just above the ribs and still leaving the skeleton a neck glue the skeleton s shoulders to the spoon handle. (Tapered ends to the spoon) To support the shoulders make some shoulder blades in the same way as you made the ribs and glue them to the shoulder pieces and over the spoon. Leave to dry. Skeletons Pelvis To make the skeleton s pelvis bone you firstly need to make three ribs. Glue the ribs to the back of the main part just above the end of the spoon handle. Don t leave any gaps between the rib like parts of the pelvis. Leave these parts to dry before continuing. Turn the skeleton over.
