This is what happens when I have a free afternoon, some polymer clay, and an urge to indulge my inner mad scientist: I create my own little army of mini-monsters!

First up are two of my favorite movie monsters: Pinhead from Hellraiser and the Repo Man from Repo: The Genetic Opera.


Next, I went with a more classic set: Frankenstein's monster, Dracula, and the Wolfman.


Here's the gang all together, ready to celebrate Halloween!


This is my first attempt at making any sort of doll shape, so they're still a bit rough around the edges. Any suggestions for how to improve this process would be greatly appreciated. I'm a polymer clay noob.  Wink

Thanks for looking!

Those are adorable!

My tip for making figures/dolls is to wrap the clay around wooden beads or sculpted foil bases. It helps me keep the shape of the figures from getting squished when I'm decorating them. It also adds some weight, and saves on clay.

Thanks for the tip, heatheres76! I just bought some more clay, so I'll definitely try your wrap technique with my next batch.
