Easy Clay Pot People

Anyone that knows me knows how much I love making these Easy Clay Pot People.  Letting my imagination free, I have so much fun creating different types of faces for my pots.  This Grandma pot was so easy and came out so cute I wanted to share it with you all.

Getting Started

Using my Paint Pixie Pixie Doh, I began forming Grandma’s nose.  Pixie Doh is so easy to use and is very light and pliable.  Working the Pixie Doh with my fingers, I created a bumpy nose and used my fingernails to make the wrinkle lines.  Pixie Doh adheres easily to the pot without any glue or adhesives.  Once I had my nose shaped, I lightly pressed it to the clay pot and finished molding the shape to the pot.

Giving Grandma’s Nose Some Color

Using my Paint Pixie Turquoise Iris Little Edge Paint Brush and Apple Barrel Peach Paint, I painted Grandma’s nose and allowed this to dry completely.

 

 

Setting Grandma’s Hair In Curlers

While Grandma’s nose was drying, I created her hair-wrapped curlers using a six-pack of small 2.5″ self-stick curlers, wired twine, and a pair of wire snips.  Starting, I wrapped the wired twine around the curler and kept wrapping until I got to the end of the curler, then snipped the cord with the wire snips.  Repeating this five more times gave three curlers for each side.

 

 

 

Giving Grandma Eyes

Using my Gorilla Hot Glue Gun, turn the googly eyes over and put hot glue on the back.  Allow this to cool slightly before picking up and sticking them to the pot.  I do this because if you pick them up while the glue is still hot, the eyes will get stuck and not move around.

 

 

Bandana Time

Take the bandana of your choosing, fold it in half once, and tip to tip, forming a triangle.  Start with the widest edge and roll until you get to the end.  You can use a small dab of hot glue to hold the end in place.  Tie the bandana around the top rim of the clay pot with the knot in the front.

 

 

Curlers And Bling

Using hot glue, attach three curlers under the bandana on each pot’s side.  Remembering how grandma used to set her hair in curlers, I tried to line them up as evenly as possible.  Totally Dazzled has some of the most beautiful gems, jewels, and shiny pieces of happiness you will ever find for your craft projects.  I chose a rose gold-colored gemstone for the center of grandmas bandana.  It was easy to add some bling to this project using a bit of hot glue on the back.

 

 

Grandmas Love Rouge

Using my Turquoise Iris Favorite paint brush and Apple Barrel Cameo Pink, I dry brushed grandmas cheeks.  Grandmas love their rouge, so I blended the Cameo Pink and Bright Red and dry brushed grandma’s cheeks again using the same paintbrush.

 

 

Giving Grandma Pursed Lips

Using my Turquoise Iris Favorite paint brush and Apple Barrel Bright Red, I painted a heart shape to create Grandma’s lips.  To give her lips more definition and that pursed look, I added highlights using my Turquoise Iris Tipsy paint brush and Cameo Pink.

Grey Haired Grandma

To give grandma that grey-haired look, I brushed Apple Barrel Snow White over the twine wrapped around the curlers using my Little Edge paintbrush.  No need to clean this brush.  Blend Snow White and Black Apple Barrel paint until the desired shade of grey are reached using the Little Edge paint brush and dab over the white painted twine to give grandma multidimensional grey hair.

 

 

Project Protection

Wait 24 hours to allow everything to dry completely.  Paint Pixie Force field is one of my must-have project sealers.  Using my Little Edge paintbrush, I applied Force Field only to the painted areas and let them dry completely.  I love to use this for anything I place outside or in direct sunlight since it is one of the few sealers that offers UV protection which keeps my bright colors popping.

I've only been watching a couple of months but I always look forward to her crafts and going shopping with her. She lets you know when something isn't going as planned but always improvises. I have enjoyed a renewal in my crafting and she is always so helpful. Thank you Annie!
