Angry Bird Tutorial {polymer clay}

I am EXCITED about today's "How-To" Tutorial!
(and feeling pretty good that I kept my word about "how-to-Thursday's")
Welcome to my Angry Bird Tutorial.
This design is made out of polymer clay, but you may also use
fondant, playdough or other clay medium.

To start, you will need:

1. Polymer Clay
(red, yellow, black, white & beige)
I use Fimo Soft, but you may use what you like.
Condition clay before working with it.
To condition: squish, roll, push, squeeze, etc., until clay is pliable.



2. Clean flat work surface.
3. Clay cutting tool or long smooth craft knife.
4. 3/4" circle Kemper Cutter or Cap from bottle.
5. A large, dull needle, or similar object.


Images should show up in the 700px wide, but for some reason, not all of them are.
Let me know if you have any questions, or if you need me to email you images.

P.S. Remember to wash your hands after using each color clay, as well as after entire project is done.  If you are making this craft with a child, you will want to use Sculpey Bake Shop.  It does not dry out and is kid friendly; it contains no common allergens, is lead and phthalate-free and is not tested on animals. 

***This craft is not intended for small children, as small parts may break off, causing a choking hazard.

Super cute! I'll have to show this to the kids. They love Angry Birds!

Just so you know, all the polymer clays made by Sculpey, are safe for kids to use. Not just Bake Shop.

My favorite one for the kids to use is Premo Sculpey, because it is extra strong when baked. This is important because kids like to play with what they make, and it can be very sad for them if their piece breaks.

HI,
Can you please let me know whether it is dangerous to fix this FIMO material on the refrigerator for decorations?

Please advise.
