Hello there! (Guess who I just quoted from Star Wars?) Remember those adorable avians in Star Wars: The Last Jedi? That’s right, Porgs!
Credit to google for this hunk of cuteness. ^
Last time, I told you I’d show you how I made a little porg for my Star Wars Forces of Destiny dolls. So, here we are! Using this tutorial you can make one in whatever size you want!
You will need:
- Air dry clay
- A school glue bottle (It does not have to have glue in it.)
- A toothpick
- Craft paint
- Optional: Mod Podge
- This porg picture for reference throughout:
First, grab your clay, and massage it with water, so that it is easy to form.
Sculpt it into a pear shape for the body. (Yeah, I got messy…)
Grab a smaller amount of clay and form it into a small tear-shaped piece. Make 2 for the wings.
Press each of the wings, at their points, firmly to the side of the body near the “head” area.
Press gently on the other parts of the wings so that you can still clearly see them and they didn’t blend into the rest of the body.
Push the tip of your glue bottle into the clay “head” to make eye sockets.
Make sure to space them enough for the nostrils…
… speaking of which: add some nostrils with the toothpick.
Make a mouth with the toothpick as well. Go off the picture for the shape of things.
Roll two small pieces of clay into balls and press them fairly firmly into the eye sockets so that they don’t fall out, but maintain their shape.
I ended up adding some marks on his belly for “feathers”.
Form two little tulip-like pieces for the feet. Press them to the underside of the body.
NOTE: I wish I had made my porg feet a bit thicker for durability.
Now let your porg dry. It will take different amounts of time depending on its size.
Here is mine all dried. ^
Begin using craft paint to paint it. Use the porg picture as a reference. Then again, there are always creative liberties. 🙂
Here is my painted porg. ^
This is optional, but you can use Mod Podge to make the eyes shiny.
Here is my finished cutie. ^
This craft is super simple and was actually a lot of fun to make (coming from someone who isn’t a crafting fanatic.)
The porg came out super cute! I might even make more so I can have a family of porgs!
