My fave little guys from my childhood are back…. you either love em or hate em. lol
Today I’m going to show you how to make a smurf out of polymer clay. But I am sure you can make this little feller out of any air dry clay or paper clay and then paint it up. Of course you will be missing out the baking step.
ok off we go with the tutorial…..
Roll ear edges
and attach ears and nose to head….
The way I molded my pieces to the other pieces all throughout this tutorial is I used Fiskars Embossing tools at all joins. I used extra large ball end and very fine ball ends.
roll two pieces of blue and make arms….
roll one end to make the hand and cut 2 slits in to make 3 fingers
add a little oval to make the thumb.
The following picture shows the finished hand/arm and the ready rolled arm ready to make the hand.
Wash your hands here as the blue speckles through your white like mine did. ooops!
And take some white and work it into a hat for your smurf. Roughly like the body shape but with a flat bit to put on the head.
Now the beauty of making your own smurfs is that every one will be very different to each other only because hand making something exactly the same is near impossible unless you are a genius or a machine.
You can also use this tutorial to make Smurfette, Poppa Smurf or any of your favourites. All you have to do is add the different colours and features of each smurf as required just before the baking stage. I’ve only given you a base to work off.
I hope you enjoy making your own smurf collection ALA YOU!
