You will need:

  • Micador Super Modelling Clay - Orange, Red, Black and White

Step 1: Roll out your pieces!

Roll out your pieces – 2 small bits for the ears, 1 medium piece for the head, 1 longer piece for the body, 2 medium bits for the legs and 1 small piece for a tail.

Step 2: Attach the head!

Roll a thick cone shape for the head and an egg shape for the body. Placing the head onto the body vertically ways. 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: Connect your feet and arms!

Attach your feet to the base of the body and arms to the side, wrapping around the front. To attach the ears, turn the round balls into pointy cones attaching the chunkier end to the head.

Step 4: Add the finishing touches!

Roll out the tail and bend it slightly upwards. When attaching it to the body, start from the bottom of the body (a little underneath) and press it upwards. Add on your finishing touches like a pouch, nose, eyes and mouth.
