Too Cute Narwhals Made of Clay
Total Time 30 minutes or less Ages school-age

My daughter and I love narwhals so much. Unlike unicorns, they actually exist (and are ten times more awesome). We came up with this cute polymer clay design so you can make a narwhal of your own!

What you'll need

  • Grey Polymer Clay
  • White Polymer Clay
  • Black Nail Polish
  • White Nail Polish
  • Light Pink Nail Polish
  • Bobby Pin
  • Toothpick

How to make it

  1. Step 1

    Start by rolling a ball out of clay about a half inch in diameter.

  2. Step 2

    Now, add the fins. You just need to shape these like a half circle and stick them to the sides of your ball.

  3. Step 3

    Now for the fin. Shape it like this, you can either cut it or just sort of squish it out with your hand.

  4. Step 4

    Stick your fin down to the narwhal ball like this. That waay your tail will sort of flip up in the back.

  5. Step 5

    For the horn just take a tiny piece of white clay and twist it out to a point like this.

  6. Step 6

    Now, stick it on top of the narwhal body.

  7. Step 7

    When you're finished, use the end of a bobby pin dipped in black nail polish to make the little black circles for his eyes. Use a toothpick dipped in nail polish to draw on the smile with a stippling motion. 

  8. Step 8

    Add the little white dots in his eyes with a toothpick dipped in white nail polish, and use pink nail polish on the end of a bobby pin for the rosy cheeks.

    Bake in the ove at 275 degrees for about thirty minutes, and you have an adorable narwhal made out of clay!
