find a picture on line of piano keys or go from your memory.
Measure your wrist.
Take some clay I used 1/2 of the block(but it will depend on how thick you want it to be)
Roll out the clay (to your wrist circumference) on a smooth surface with a rolling pin.
Take a knife and cut straight edges to form a rectangle.
Cut slightly into clay to make indentions for the white piano keys.
For the black piano keys take black fimo clay roll it out to the thickness you want and cut even rectangles (their length should be slightly more than 1/2 the length of 1 white piano key)
Press black keys over the white in sets of 2-3 skipping every other white key.If this is confusing refer to an online pic. of piano keys; you'll get a better idea.
when cool,paint keys white and black and paint in lines with black paint... (this part is aggravating if your paint brush is not thin enough)b/c you'll have to keep re-painting mistakes.
You could probably bake the white & black keys separetly then paint and glue the keys on to make it easier.
