Your workspace:
Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Work ‘n Bake Clay Mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Uncured clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.

Getting Started:
Start with clean hands, unwrap and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay though a Pasta Machine. We recommend using a designated machine for clay purposes only. When working with multiple colors, clean hands with soap and water or baby wipes (we have found that baby wipes work best) before switching colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.

Baking:
Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 15 minutes per ¼" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
Create an aluminum foil armature that is about the same size as your finger by making a log shape out of sheets foil compacted together. Make sure the foil is compacted well. Cover the outside of the foil finger with layers of tape so that it is smooth and clay cannot get trapped in the texture of the foil.
Shape a large piece of Yellow Pluffy into a thick log approxmently 2” long x ¾” thick for the lion's body. Push the foil finger up inside the clay and re-shape it as necessary.
Create a ball shape about 1” round for the head. Add this to the top of the body. Use the toothpick to score lines in the body to indicate legs
Create a long rope of Orange Pluffy for the mane and wrap this around the top of the head. Cut off the excess. Press lines into the mane with toothpick to mimic hair. Make four little Yellow ovals for the feet. Attach these to the front of the legs. Press lines into the feet to mimic toes.To make the mouth and the ears, first create a small log of Yellow Pluffy that is tapered on both ends. Bend the piece in half so the tapered ends touch. Make two for the ears and 1 for the mouth. Press the ears and mouth onto the face.
Make two flat ovals from Green Pluffy for the eyes. Make two White teardrop shapes for the muzzle. Attach right above the mouth. Make an Orange flattened teardrop for the tongue. Place inside the mouth. Make two small Black disks for the pupils in the eyes and highlight with two tiny balls of white. Make a Black oval for a nose. Prick little whisker marks in the muzzle with the toothpick.
Bake the puppet according to the above directions in Step 1. Very gently remove the foil armature when cooled.
