Stacked Polymer Clay Pumpkins

A little polymer clay and a little paint (ok a toothpick plays a minor role too) and you can create this fun stack of pumpkins.







Stacked Polymer Clay Pumpkins

1 stick orange polymer clay
1/4 stick black polymer clay
1 toothpick
white and black acrylic paint
black marker - thin

Divide the orange clay into 3 pieces - one larger for the bottom, one medium and one small.  Roll into a pumpkin shape.  Use the side of a flat toothpick to put lines into the back half of the pumpkins, leaving the front smooth for the faces.  Stack and insert the toothpick leaving part out to hold the hat.  Make a flat disc for the bottom of the hat and then a gradual cone for the top part.  Bake per clay instructions.  Allow to cool.  Using a dotter or end of your paintbrush, dot in the white eyes.  Allow to dry.  Dot in a smaller black dot, looking upwards for the bottom two pumpkins and ahead for the top one.  Draw in mouths and eyebrows.
