Here is the Patriotic Potato Head clay figurine. Hm... do you think this Mr. Potato Head too skinny?
If you think so, make sure you add more clay for the body or add styrofoam backing when you make the figurine.
Step 1: Body
Step 2: Shoes
This is the basic shape for the shoes. You need to add lines to make the shoes looks like his real shoes.
From the ball shape, make an oval shape and flatten it. Make another flat oval shape for the base and then small flat oval shape again for the top and add the minus sign.
Step 3: Mouth/ Lips
Step 4: Moustache
Step 5: Nose
Step 6: Hands
Always start with the basic shape. Divided the tip of the clay to 4 equal part and shape the fingers. Position the fingers to your preference.
Step 7: Eyes
Frankly speaking the eyes play an important part for the overall expression.
Step 8: Ears
Step 9: 4th of July Hat
Beside of the picture beside you still need another flat round circle in white or red color to cover the top of the hat.
Roll the rectangular shape around the base and cover the top.
Tips: we don't have tiny star cutter or the disk for our clay extruder gun so we've made the star from two triangle shape stack one to another. But it seems that we only get one perfect shape :)
