Polymer Clay Mummy Tutorial


I thought it would be fun to start a few Halloween Tutorials. Today I'll be showing you how to make a mummy!

I try to make these as easy as possible with lots of pictures, so enjoy.

Supplies....Premo Flesh and self stick band aid tape.

Toothpick

Two small black seed beads



The shapes are one ball, four tubes (arms and legs) and an oval for the body.



Attach and sit upright
Make a foot and 5 toes. Attach to end of leg.



Push seed beads into face for eyes. Form a nose with clay and press gently. Use a toothpick to make imprints in the face. Bake at 275 for 20 minutes. Let cool completely.



Now the fun begins. Tear off strips of tape and begin wrapping them around the body. I tore the strips down the middle to make them more narrow.



Cover most of the body, leaving the nose, eyes and toes exposed.



Dust with a brown pastel crayon. Then soften with a clean brush!




Here's the mummy sitting with some pumpkin friends!

Oh gosh he is just way too cute! The bandaid tape is a great idea. Really looks realistic!

Thanks Cindy! I have done it with gauze before, but happened to have this sticky stuff, so it worked!
