Crayola Cute Cats & Kittens

Create the Crayola Cute Cats & Kittens and you might see why these regal animals have such high opinions of themselves. Either way, you've made a new friend that can keep you (and your cat, if you have one), company.

  • Level:beginner
  • Time:1 hour

Project Instructions

  • 1
    Model Magic dries to the touch overnight and dries completely in 2 to 3 days. Project time does not include this drying time.
  • 2
    Head and Body: Combine Terra Cotta, White and Black to create an interesting mix of colors for your cat. Or use a solid color if you prefer. Roll one medium-sized ball for the body and one for the head. (Tip: Model Magic that is fresh from the bag sticks to itself).
  • 3
    Legs and Feet: Roll out four smaller balls of clay in the color scheme you chose for step 2. Shape them into legs by rolling one end narrower than the other. Push up the narrow end to create feet. Press toe lines into feet with your fingernail or a scissor blade. Press on the feet. If necessary, add a drop of glue to hold small parts in place.
  • 4
    Face: Add two tiny balls for cheeks in the same color scheme. Mix Red and White to get a Pink ball for its nose. Create eyes from small White and Black balls that you flatten before attaching. Create ears by flattening two small triangles. Curve them slightly and attach.
  • 5
    Tail: Add a nice long tail in the same color scheme.
