It is fun and fairly simple to take a humble lump of clay and transform it into a dazzling creature like a mermaid. You do not have to be Michelango to create a mermaid. I have broken down the process into easy to follow step and photos.
I use Sculpey clay. You can purchase it for approximately $15 at any craft store. You need to preheat your oven to 275 degrees and bake it for about 10 minutes. Let it cool and gently slide a metal spatula under the mermaid to remove it from the cookie sheet.
I roll the clay into a ball for the head. You then smash it flat on an Airbake baking sheet.
Roll a small ball of clay and make it look like a snake. Press the neck into the head. You will need to constantly smooth out lumps.
Make a rectangular shape and press it into the neck. Gently round the corners to create shoulder and narrow it down into a waist.
Please stay tuned. In a few days I will post instructions on how to form hair and a crown.
