You’ll have a fang-tastic time creating this miniature vampire vintage bell inspired ornament to display this Halloween.
GETTING STARTED
Start with clean hands and work surface area. Good work surfaces include wax paper, metal baking sheet, a ceramic tile or disposable foil. Knead clay until soft and smooth. For best results, clean your hands in between colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces together firmly. Bake on oven-proof metal surface at 275 °F for 30 minutes per 1/4 in thickness. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME. Wash hands after use. Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F. Test temperature with oven thermometer for perfectly cured clay. For best results, condition all clay by running it through the clay dedicated pasta machine several passes on the widest setting. Fold the clay in half after each pass and insert the fold side into the rollers first.

    Project Instructions

    Take some red glitter paint and add a few dots of red paint to the bottom of the cup. Use the paintbrush to spread the paint over the bottom and up the sides to create a dripping effect. Set aside the cup and let dry completely.
    Cut a 3” x 3” square from a piece of 2mm chip board (like the cardboard base from a pad of paper). Do the same on a piece of decorative scrapbook paper (make sure your square is larger than the diameter of the plastic cup). Decoupage your two squares together with Mod Podge. Set this aside and let dry completely.
    Make a ½” oval from Black clay. With your finger, press down on the top of the oval to create the bats ears. Use the 2mm Style & Detail tool to make the sockets for the eyes.Make two small balls of Glow In The Dark clay. Make sure the balls are small enough to fit in the sockets. Add a dot of Bake & Bond in the eye sockets and press the Glow In The Dark balls in. Use a toothpick to make the pupils.Add some Bake & Bond to the end of the eye pin and insert it into the top of you bat's head. Place your bat head on to a ceramic tile.After Baking-Add the wings:Using pinking shears, cut out the wing shape from black felt. Glue them onto the back of the bat.
    Body Make a ½” ball of Black clay to create the body. Cut a small piece of a toothpick. Apply Bake & Bond to the cut end and insert it into the top of the black ball. Face Make a ¾” ball from the Glow In The Dark clay. Flatten the ball into a ¼” thick pancake. Stand the pancake on its edge. Using your finger flatten the top and pull out slightly to form the ears. Set aside. Hair: With your Clay Conditioning Machine on the #5 setting, roll out a sheet of Black clay. Use the mini oval cutter to cut out the oval shape. Use the arch shapes from the heart cutter to make the scalloped hairline. Attach the black hair to the head. Add eyes and mouth with your tools. Add Bake & Bond to the tip of the toothpick and gently press the head onto the body.
    With your Clay Conditioning Machine on the #5 setting, roll out a sheet of Cadmium Red. Use a stamp to texture the sheet. Then roll out a piece of Black through on the #5 setting. Place the red sheet onto the black sheet.
    Lay vampire on top of both pieces to figure out how big to make the cape. Use the Super Slicer rick rack blade to cut off bottom part of the clay. Use Super Slicer straight blade to cut off the top part just above the vampire’s head. Use a craft knife to cut out the shape of the collar. Add some Bake & Bond to the back of the vampire and lightly press the cape around your vampire.
    Roll two tiny wasabi balls for the eyes. Use a toothpick to make the pupils.
    Bake your pieces in your oven according to the instructions above. Let cool completely.
    Paint black eyes and white fangs and buttons on your vampire. Add eye color and fangs to your bat. Paint a coat of glossy glaze on both pieces. Let dry.
    Lay your cup on top of your chipboard and cut a circle out with your scalloped scissors leaving approx ¼” of a rim. Glue your vampire in the center of the circle base. Add glue to the rim of the cup and place over the vampire. Once dried glue your bat to the top of the cup attached black twine for the hanger.
