Step 1

Prepare the CelluClay

Mix the CelluClay according to package directions.

Add 32oz. of warm water to 1 lb. of CelluClay mixing in a zip top bag.

Knead with fingers until the CelluClay reaches the consistency of clay or stiff dough with no dry spots.

Add more dry CelluClay if mixture is too wet or soft, and more water if CelluClay if too dry or stiff.

Step 2


Use a recycled plastic round carryout container or shallow bowl for the structure of the kitty cat’s head.

Cut two triangle shapes out of corrugated cardboard.

Attach the triangle shapes to the top of the circle form with a hot glue gun.

Step 3


Cover each armature with a coat of the CelluClay.

Smooth out any bumps in the CelluClay with wet fingertips.

* Using a clay sculpting wheel will aide in the sculpture process.
Apply several coats of CelluClay as needed. Allowing the individual coats to dry in between layers.

Allow the sculpture to air dry. Humidity levels will impact drying time.

The CelluClay will lighten in color and become harder as it is drying.

Use sandpaper to smooth out any rough areas or bumps on the sculpture’s surface.

Attach the pedal pieces to the cat’s face using a hot glue gun.
