Use different clay colors to create a variety of Ewoks and amass your own adorable army of Endor!
Time: 25 minutes
What You’ll Need
- Polymer clay in black, brown, orange, tan
- Craft knife (optional)
How To Make It
- Print the PDF template, unwrap your clay and cut small pieces approximately the size and shape of the template pieces.
- Round the arms, body, and feet and attach them together. In the standing position, squish the body down gently so the feet flatten a bit and your Ewok will be able to stand. An adult may use a craft knife to cut a small portion of the bottom off at a 90 degree angle to make your Ewok stand flat perfectly stable.
- Place the flattened, tan face piece on the body as pictured and using the side of a toothpick press lightly on the edge of the face with the pointy end aimed towards the center of the face and repeat in a circular pattern (this texture creates a stylized impression of fur). Add the eyes, nose and the two lip pieces together to form a mouth as shown in the main image and in the PDF.
- Place the flattened headdress with the hole over the face and softly work it down to wrap around the Ewok’s head. There should be a little room between the tan face and the hole in the headdress. If there isn’t, recut the headdress hole a tad bigger. Place the smaller, tan inner ear shape on the outer ear and press to make each ear two-toned. Press the ears in place on top of the headdress.
- Place the toothpick through the uplifted hand of the Ewok (this can help steady the character) and add a bit of pointy clay to the top as a spearhead if desired.
Cutting should be done by an adult.
Variations: Using different colors of clay and your imagination, you can design your own Ewok!
