A frog teapot tutorial

This is very easy to make.  You'll need

A green bead or a green ball of green polymer clay.  A tiny piece of white clay and a tiny piece of black clay.  I used Fimo.

Stick one circle of clay under the bead to steady it and the other circle on top of the bead to form the cover of the pot.

Make the eyes using the two small green balls.  Press a little dent in the middle of the small green balls.

Install tiny white balls in the dents.

Stick tiny black balls on the white balls.

Flatten a little the other two little green balls. With a knife make two cuts in each and
stick them to the bottom of the bead. (These make the feet)

Now make the nozzle as seen in the photo bellow.

Stick nozzle to the bead.

Stick eyes to cover.  (Stick them close together, as seen in the next photo)

Add handle, bake and glaze.  That's all.

Hope the photos speak for themselves because my English is too poor for better explanation.

I was very lucky to win Rosella's birthday giveaway. A precious little cushion.  It arrived when I was too
ill to take photos and post about it but I did let Rosella know that it was safe in my hands.
I'll have to show you Rosella's photo, because right now I am frustratedly looking for it.  I know it's safe
somewhere close.  There is a word we use a lot in Hebrew, BALAGAN which means a messy
chaos.  This is what my work table looks right now.  I haven't gained enough courage to start tidying it and cannot let anyone else to this job for me.

A warm welcome to Marian. Thank you for following.

Hugs and blessings to all my readers

    PS Is the bead a glass bead, because I think you can't bake a plastic bead?

    1. The green bead I used here is glass but plastic beads are even better. I used rose plastic beads for teapots in my previous post and the results are the same.

  12. Me gustó esa tetera en cuanto la vi, por eso te doy las gracias por el tutorial para ver si me animo a hacer una igual.
    te felicito por el premio de Rosella y ánimo con la mesa de trabajo.
