If you are going to make a cast of an object, such as your own nose, you do not need to use messy terra-cotta clay and cling film in order to successfully make a casting. By using polymer clay, you can make a realistic casting of your nose without water or cling film. You can even bake the clay right in a conventional oven, making the process even more simple and achievable.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Drape the clay sheet over your nose, press your fingers over the clay to ensure that the mould of your nose will be accurate.

  4. 4

    Pull the mould off of your nose, making sure not to stretch it.

    Place the nose mould onto a baking tray and bake it in a 200 degree Fahrenheit oven for 15 minutes.

    Insert more polymer clay into the hardened mould, then pull out the nose casting.
