Sculpey III® teams up with Liquid Sculpey® Oven-Bake Clay Adhesive to help you create this Kawaii (cute) little cat figurine in a snap! We've created a Pink Glitter Kawaii cat, but you can make yours any color you wish!
Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Oven-Safe Work 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.
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.
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 1/4" (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.
Roll a 1” sized ball of Pink Glitter clay for the cat’s head. Roll a 1.5” sized ball of Pink Glitter for the cat’s body. Roll two 1/4” sized balls of Pink Glitter for the cat’s hind feet.
Shape the ball of the head into a more oblong oval shape. Shape two pointed ears on the cat’s head with your fingertips. Use the end of your paintbrush to make indents in the center of each ear.
Shape the larger ball of Pink Glitter into an oval. Use your fingers and pull and shape a long rounded tail. Shape two front legs as well extending out as if your cat was lying down with his legs outstretched in front of him.
Use a bit of Liquid Sculpey® Oven-Bake Clay Adhesive and attach the head to the body just over the back of the front legs. Tilt the head slightly for a bit of whimsey. Attach the two hind feet on either side of the body in the back.
Roll a very thin, long snake of Red Hot Red clay. You are going to be cutting pieces off this snake to make the stripes on the kitty cat.
You will want to roll and point the ends of all the little pieces you cut off. Cut the following off the long snake: Three 1/2” pieces for the stripes on the top of the head. Four 1/2” pieces for the stripes on either side of the head. Two 1/4” pieces for the stripes on the front legs. Four 1” pieces for the stripes along the back. Lastly, five little 1/4” pieces for the stripes along the tail.
Press the stripes on the listed areas of the cat. Flatten them as much as you can with your fingertips.
