Make a Cute Kitten in a Flower Pot

This tutorial to create a cute kitten sitting in a flower pot is from French artist Brigida Clement.    She has allowed translation to English, with proper credits to her original, of course.   Please visit her website at Babou Bricole.

Cute animal figures like this kitten can be made with just about any type of air-dry clay
but they are particularly suitable to cold porcelain and the soft clays such as Makin's Clay, Cloud Clay or Model Magic.   When working with soft clays, it is important to let some parts dry for a few hours before assembling...such as between steps 7 and 8 of this project.   Otherwise the soft body may collapse under the weight of the head.

The clay pot is approximately 1.5 inches tall.  Add some clay flowers or something else of your choice to personalize the finished project.


  1. This project is so sweet. Thanks for sharing. Is it possible to make a standing cat?

  2. Hi Darlene, Of course you can make a standing cat...but you might have to use an armature to make legs strong enough to hold weight of body. I'll post a tutorial soon that covers that topic.


Thank you very much for taking the time to comment! ;-)
