Sculpting Feet for a Polymer Clay Frog in a Pond with Melissa Terlizzi

“So, what I do is I just roll up that foot piece or the hand, I guess I should be calling it and I’m going to flatten it out and I make sort of like a paddle shape, kind of like that. And then I’m going to do the same for the other side. I always lay my hands and feet out. Side-by-side because so many times I’ve done hands where I’ve done two left hands and it’s Oh, it makes me so mad. Cause I’ll, I’ll come up with one and I’ll think it actually looks pretty good.”

Creating the Body of a Polymer Clay Frog in a Pond with Melissa Terlizzi

“So first step is just going to be to wrap the clay around your foil core and how you do that is really up to you. It’s not, you want to trim off the excess, you don’t, we don’t need all that thickness. If your clay is too thick, it’s going to, it could, it could, crack on you. If you have areas that are much thicker than others. So I try to trim off what I don’t need. So let’s just move this aside for a second. I’m actually gonna get rid of this tile for a minute. I will put it on this because then it’ll be easier to move the tile than it will be to lift the frog once it has its legs on.”
