Let your imagination run wild with clay this Australia Day!

Get your supplies!

You will need:

  • Micador Super Modelling Clay - Brown, Black and White

  • Micador Modelling tools

Step 1: Roll out your pieces!

Roll out your pieces – 1 large piece for the body, 1smaller piece for the head. Make the body a short, wide egg shape and the head into a thick triangle.

Step 2: Attach the head and body!

Attach the head and body together and smooth together. TIP: Using a toothpick, pierce it through the body, leaving a little bit exposed and attach the head. This will create more stability and strength.

Step 3: Add the features!

Add on your eyes, feet and tail. Press into the head with the rounded red tool to make a cavity for the eyes to sit in. To make the feet pinch some clay and attach it to the underneath of the body.

Step 4: Get spikey!

Using colourful matchsticks, stick lots of them into the back of your Echidna to create colourful spikes.
