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.

    Knead a 4-inch ball of polymer clay for a few minutes to remove any air bubbles.

  2. 2

    Flatten the clay into a 2-inch thick sheet using your fingers.

  3. 3

    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.

  5. 5

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

  6. 6

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

  7. 7

    Bake the nose cast on a baking tray, as before.
