I was inspired by the Kit-Cat clock to make these polymer clay earrings. I used eye pins to attatch the tail seperately, giving the impression that it moves from side to side, just like on the actual clock. :)
Please upload your version of this project if you give it a try! :)
Take two small amounts of clay, both the same size. Shape them into a sort of flat-bottomed oval prism shape. This will be the body of your cat.
Stick an eye pin through the centre of each little blob. Pull it up quite far, without completely covering the eye of the pin.
Take two more small blobs of clay, both the same size, and roll them into balls.
Pull the tops of the ball into two points, forming ears. Look at a picture of the Kit-Cat clock for reference.
Once you are happy with the shape of the head and ears, slide the head onto the eye pin above the body.
Using a tiny amount of white clay, make four little triangular shapes and two near-inisible little round balls. Press these onto your cat on its neck, between the head and body, to form a bowtie - have two triangles pointing to the centre and the little ball in the middle, between the two.
Bake the clay at the temperature recommended by the manufacturer.
Paint two circles onto the head with white acrylic paint. These will be your eyes.
Paint on white for the mouth and a speck above the nose area for the nose. Once this is dry, add mouth details and eye pupils in black.
Add clock face and detail to body using white acrylic paint.
Turn the pins in the tails and form a loop. Cut off the excess of the pin.
Attach the hoop on the tail to the eye of the pin through the body.
Form a loop with the excess pin at the top of the head and cut off excess if necessary. Attach to earring hook.
You're done with your earrings! :)
For the necklace, repeat steps 1-13 but slightly larger, and making only one this time. Instead of attaching it to earring hooks, attach it to a jump ring and a chain necklace, and you're finished! :)
