i have always been fascinated by clay crafts, and wanted to try my hands on clay.
happened to pass by a craft store having a discount on sculpey, so i bought a bunch.

i love miyazaki, so i decided to recreate some of my favourite characters.

my very first attempts on polymer clay(at least since kindergarten):

kodama (forest spirits) from princess mononoke. these r about an inch tall.

noface from spirited away. about 3" tall.

calcifer from howl's moving castle. 1" tall.

totoro. 1.5" tall.

ponyos. they are about 2/3 of an inch in length.

these were loads of fun to make, and im pretty happy with how they turned out.
they are not glazed yet though.. any suggestions on glaze for sculpey III clay?

thks for viewing! <3


I made a bunch of ponyos into mobile phone charms for a charity fundraising Smiley

before attaching the chains.

They are not going to bring in a lot of money, but oh well, i enjoyed making them, and isn't that the most important thing?


i took nataluna's suggestion and entered the little tiny challenge! check out my entry post here http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=340139.0

I think you did a good job!!  I think the Ponyos are really, really cute, but all of them are adorable!  Awesome job!

I recognized the Kodama right away from the thumbnail. I always thought they were kinda creepy adorable. Your Noface is super accurate also, and I love the surprised look on Cal's face.
