Clay Candy Corn

 

 

 What You'll Need:

Let's Do This!

Step 1:

Divide the clay block into eight equal sections. We used 10 ounces of clay in a block that is 7" x 3" x 5/8" thick.  

 

Step 2:

Roll the clay into balls.

Step 3:

A) Pinch one end of the clay ball into a pointed shape.

B) Press the pointed clay ball flat on a smooth surface.

C) Keep working the clay into a candy corn shape by flattening and pinching the clay. Our finished candy corn is approximately ½" to ¾" thick, and 1 ½" wide by 2" tall.

D) When the shape is well developed, roll the clay candy corn on its side to create smooth, rounded corners. 

Step 4:

Use a paint brush to press lines into the clay candy corn, dividing the shape into thirds. Have the lines continue around all sides of the candy corn.

 Step 5:

Bake the clay candy corn pieces at 250 degrees for ten minutes on one side, then flip and bake them for another ten minutes. Let cool.

 Step 6:

A) Paint the bottom sections of the candy corn pieces yellow. Let dry.

B) Paint the middle sections of the candy corn pieces orange. Let dry. Optional tip: Coat the candy corn pieces with a clear spray paint or sealer if desired.

 TADA!
