I hope all of you had a very Merry Christmas
I’d also like to say, Happy New Year! (in advance)
I made this garfield as a gift for my friend as part of christmas celebrations.
pls note: this is more of a process post as opposed to a step by step tutorial. This was made in such a rush, that I did not have the time.
As always, start with a reference.

- Polymer clay in orange, yellow, light pink, white and black (remember you can mix colours)
- Wire (I got mine from a local hardware store)
Let’s start! (I wasn’t able to take pictures of the first few steps, so I have created these illustrations)
Step 1- Roll out a ball of orange clay. If you want, you can fill it with scrap clay like in Polymer Clay Dumbledore.
Step 2- Make 2 triangles and add them to the head as ears.
Step 3- Make the eyes and add these to the face.
Step 4- Add a yellow strip of clay shaped like the pattern below beneath the eyes to resemble his snout. Add a pink ball as the nose.
Step 5- Add black coils to the ears and side of the face.
Step 7- Add the arms to the body in a folded position as shown.
Step 11- Time for garfield’s favourite food! Pizza! Roll out a beige coloured piece of clay and cut out 1/8 th of a circle from it. Add a red and yellow layer on top of it in a similar manner. Add little green and red balls as toppings.
Step 12- Put garfield and pizza into the oven to bake at 110 degrees celsius for 30 minutes.
Garfield is now ready!
