Polymer Clay Yoda
From the Designer: "This polymer clay Yoda was created using Sculpey Souffle polymer clay. A roller was used to create thin layers of clay for the clothing, and an etching tool and slicer were used to add details to the face. Three different colors of Sculpey Souffle polymer clay were used for this project: Pistachio, Poppy Seed, and Igloo. This is a relatively simple project that requires more patience than skill. The final product is small (see pencil for scale)."
