A Blog by Justin Ponti

Crafting adorable clay animals is a delightful way to spark creativity and have fun! In this tutorial, we'll guide you step-by-step on how to make a charming turtle using OKTO Clay. This project is perfect for kids and adults alike. So, gather your materials, and let's get started!

What You’ll Need:

  • OKTO Clay in Green and Dark Green
  • A small amount of White OKTO Clay
  • Cutting tool

Steps to Create Your OKTO Clay Turtle:

1. Choose your two colours: green and dark green. These will form the main body and shell of your turtle.

2. Roll the dark green clay into a ball. Gently compress in your cupped hands to form a semi-circle. This will be the turtle's shell.

3. Roll a pea-sized amount of green clay into 5 balls.

4. Press each ball down to form flat circles. Add these circles to the turtle’s shell to add detail.

5. Use the same green to section into five unequal balls: one large ball for the turtle's head and four smaller balls for the turtle's arms and feet

6. Roll the large green ball into a rounded cone. This will be the turtle's head.

7. Take the four smaller green balls and sculpt them into the turtle's arms and feet. Tip: Sculpt to a rounded wide top to a thin point end like a fin.

8. Take a small piece of white clay and roll it into two tiny balls for the eyes.

9. Roll smaller balls with remaining green for the pupils.

10. Attach the pupils to the white balls and place them on the turtle’s head.

11. Use the cutting tool to cut out a small mouth and two tiny nose holes on the turtle's head.

And just like that, you’ve made your very own OKTO Clay Turtle! If you want to dive deeper into the step-by-step tutorial, please watch this video. Happy crafting!
