To make a rabbit just like this one..

To make a rabbit just like this one, you will need white, blue, pink and green polymer clay.
Make all pieces before putting rabbit together. Be sure the arms are equal size, legs, etc. Colored clay will color your hands, so make all of the white pieces first.
The drawing is shown near actual size to help you form the parts correctly.
Put cheeks and nose on the head. Attach the head to the body with a 1/2" long piece of toothpick. Next take a ball point pen in closed position and poke 2 holes in the bottom of the body about 1/4" deep for the legs. Pinch the top of the pants legs to a small point, so they will fit into the holes made in the body. Connect them firmly into the body. Next, poke 2 holes in the upper sides of the body for the arms. Push the arms snuggly into the holes and let arms rest against the body.
Use a toothpick to make indentions in the paws. Press bow tie on at neck, carefully, but firm enough that it won't fall off after baking.
Now poke 2 holes in top of head for ears. We have one ear up and one down, but you may place them both up or both down if you want. Attatch ears now.
Attach feet to legs by inserting a whole toothpick up into each leg, leaving about a 1/4" out to put into the feet. The toothpick will help to strengthen the legs. Don't forget his cotton tail. Use a toothpick to fluff it up and attach it to back of body with a small piece of toothpick.
Check all your parts to be sure he is ready to bake. Follow directions from Basic Instruction page, and don't forget to prop him up while baking.
When Pete is baked and cooled, you can take a toothpick dipped in Black Acrylic paint and dot his eyes.

Polymer Clay

Polymer clay, modeling clay, oven bake clay

Polymer clay hardens by curing at temperatures created in a typical home oven (generally at 265 to 275 °F (129 to 135 °C), for 15 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) of thickness), and does not shrink or change texture during the process. Polymer clay is sold in craft, hobby, and art stores, and is used by artists, hobbyists, and children. Few tools are essential for use with polymer clay, and these can often be found around the house. A pasta machine is often used to create evenly flat sheets, to mix colors, to condition the clay, and to create patterned sheets.The clay gun, or "extruder", as it is also called, works like a cookie press.You can find these products from us.Polymer clay is available in many colors. Special-effect colors such as ,containing "metallics," and "stone" colors are also available. Clays can be mixed together to create new colors, gradient blends, or other effects. With a technique to use the pasta machine to create a gradient blended sheet of color. Polymer clay can be colored with other media. Paint, ink, colored pencil, chalk, metallic (mica-containing) powder, metallic leaf and foil, glitter, and embossing powder can be applied to the surface. The same materials also can be mixed in as inclusions; this is often done with translucent clay. When acrylic paint is cured onto the surface, it forms a permanent bond with the surface. After it has cured, the clay surface can be left as it is, it can be sanded and buffed, or it can be finished with a varnish. Uses and Techniques

Sculpting. Hand-shaped items can be any size from "miniatures" to quite large. can also be created; clay clothing and accessories can be made for sculpted figures.

Creating beads and jewelry of all kinds, such as pendants, earrings, barrettes, and buttons.

Forming "canes," which are logs of clay with patterns running through their entire length, from which identical slices can be cut and used in various ways. The patterns created in canes can be simple, complex, or anything in between; they may be pictorial or simply geometric. Canes (and therefore their images) can be "reduced" so that they become quite small, and then combined to make multiple images.

"Cover"ing items made from materials such as glass, metal, cardboard, terra cotta, and some plastics. Some popular items for covering are pens, eggshells, votive candle-holders, and switch-plates. Larger items, such as tables, can also be veneered.

Creating vessels large and small. Jars, boxes, bowls, and container pendants can be created freestanding, over , or over removable armatures.

Impressing textures, lines or images into raw clay with rubber stamps, texture sheets, sandpaper, needle tools, or other items.

Making with hardened clay, then pressing raw clay into the molds to create casts and to duplicate textures, shapes, whole faces. Molds made from metal, glass, and silicone can be used with clay as well.

Using polyclay to accept "transfers" of black-and-white or color images from photographs, drawings, computer-created images or text. Images can be transferred onto freestanding liquid clay films or decals.

Creating simulations or of many natural materials such as ivory, jade, turquoise, wood, granite, metal, leather, , or .

Carving or drilling polyclay after it has been cured (and backfilled, if desired).

Inlaying tiles or chips to create a clay or other materials to create collages. A "clay gun" can be used to uniform rope shapes.

Creating with polymer pastes, and bas reliefs.

Creating practical utility items, such as frames, games and game pieces, dioramas, toys, mini-books, notebook covers, greeting cards, and postcards.

Shaving off thin slices from layered but distorted stacks of clays, powders, and inks.

Using clay together with other media, such as wire, paper, beads, charms, stamps, and fabric.

Skinner Blend: Gradient color blending technique for two or more colors 1] using triangles of clay and a pasta machine.
