Clay Smurf Figurine


  • Blue, white and black blocks of polymer clay
  • Various clay tools


  1. Take 3/4 of a block of blue and add 1/4 of a block of white.  Roll each together to mix it to a lighter blue.

  4. The way I molded my pieces to the other pieces all throughout this tutorial is I used Fiskars Embossing tools at all joins. I used extra large ball end and very fine ball ends.
  5. Attach head to body.

  6. Roll two pieces of blue and make arms.  Roll one end to make the hand and cut 2 slits in to make 3 fingers and add a little oval to make the thumb.

  8. Flatten arms at shoulders a bit and attach to body making sure the thumb is to the side of the body.
  9. Wash your hands here so there's no blue on your white clay.
  10. And take some white and work it into a hat for your smurf. Roughly like the body shape but with a flat bit to put on the head.

  11. Take two small balls of white and two even smaller balls of black.
  12. Flatten the white then put the balls of black on each and then flatten them.  Now you have eyeballs!
