Among Us Polymer Clay Tutorial - Papa's Clay
We're going to make an Among Us Character out of Papa's Clay polymer clay in this tutorial.
Here's what you will need to get started:
- Any color Papa's Clay for the main color - we use Neon Peach polymer clay
- Gray polymer clay
- Sky Blue polymer clay
- White polymer clay
- X-ACTO knife or sharp blade
Step 1 - Condition the Clay
Papa's Clay conditions differently than other types of clay. It just needs some gentle rolling and heat from your hands. Make sure to condition your clay before you start working with it. Small pieces take just a few seconds to condition and big pieces can take up to a minute or two. You can use a hair dryer to condition it even quicker.
Step 2 - Make the body out of clay
Work your main color of Papa's Clay into a tube or cylinder and get it as smooth as you are able to. Take a tool, knife, or something else and put it in the middle of one end of your tube and push in to make the legs.
From there, you just have to gently work it with your finger and your tools to get it to the right shape. Move some parts around. Push them parts, in smooth it out. Keep on working your clay until it starts to look like a chunky "A".
Step 3 - Make the backpack
The backpack is very easy to make. Take some more of your main color Papa's Clay and work it into a rectangle. Gently place the rectangle on the back of your Among Us character.
This is a great time to bake your clay so that it does not get smashed in any of the next steps.
Step 4 - Make the Among Us Visor
Take your gray polymer clay and make it into an ellipse shape. Place the visor on the front of your Among Us character. Push in the sides and use your fingers to work it into the correct shape. The visors kind of look like three dimensional ellipses.
Bake your polymer clay Among Us character now so that nothings gets smashed in the upcoming steps.
After your Among Us character has been baked, mix some Sky Blue polymer clay with some of your gray clay. Then, fill in the portion of the visor that you cut out with the polymer clay that you just mixed.
Once the new part of the visor is totally flush with the gray polymer clay, cut out a small section in the upper right hand corner to get the brightest glare. If you have a ball stylus, you can use it to smooth out the section you removed.
Bake your clay so that you don't smash what you made so far.
Once your clay has cooled down, fill in the hole with some white clay. Make it as flush as possible and remove any excess.
