We make Snoopy and Charlie Brown figurine because this two characters from Peanuts are our favorite.
Snoopy is a super confident, world-famous beagle, wildly imaginative hip dog, a master of disguise.
Charlie Brown is the lovable looser in the zig-zag t-shirt, the kid who never gives up (even though he almost never wins).
He manages the world's worst baseball team...yet show up for every game.
He can't muster the courage to talk to the Little-Red-Haired girl...yet keeps hoping.
As described by his creator, Charles Schulz,
"Charlie Brown must be the one who suffers, because he's a caricature of the average person. Most of us are much more acquainted with losing than winning. Winning is great, but it isn't funny."
The 3D movie is coming up and we are looking forward to watch him and the gang.
Alright! back to our figurine...let's have fun creating the characters with clay.
Start with selecting the clay material. We use air dry - light clay for the dog and cold porcelain clay for Charlie.
Other type of clay like oven-baked polymer clay is a good choice too if you are familiar with it.
Let's start with the dog's head.
Next, let's make the body of our Snoopy. Start with ball and then tear drop clay shape. Press the sharp part lightly with finger and then with your small ball tool.
Apply vaseline to the toothpick, insert it and take it out when it almost dry. We need the hole to insert the head later on.
After that, let's make the dog's legs like the above picture. Insert wire or toothpick to each of leg and attach the leg to the body.
Leave this to dry in room temperature if you use air dry clay or put this in the oven if you use oven-baked polymer clay.
Insert the dog's head to the body and and the neck chain. Ehm...we are almost there.
The above picture is showing you the step I did to make the hands.
Finally add the tail and the black patch at the back of the body.
It's ready! You can insert the wire or the toothpick on the legs to the base.
Here is our Snoopy from different angles :)
Above picture is my steps to make Charlie :)
I used colored chalk to make Charlie's shoes look like seasoned leather shoes.
