Total Time: 15 minutes

Step 1: Divide the modeling clay

Four Plasticine Balls

Take a block of clay and divide it into two pieces: a small piece and a large piece. Mash each piece to create a head and torso.

Step 2: Shape modeling clay

Ghost Bodies

Make pairs of soft pieces that resemble the shape of drops. Pull the narrow part of the drop into a thin tail and fold it. This will give you a head with a long brush and a body with a shapeless tail.

Step 3: Create a Ghost body

Two Ghosts

Join the two pieces for each figure. Pull the tails and topknot to the sides. The main figure is finished. Create emotions for their faces. For example, a boy might be surprised and a girl might be smiling.

Step 4: Make a face

Ghost Gace

Glue on the eyes. Place the clay cakes on top of each other and push a strip from top to bottom into the mouth to create a funny look.

Step 5: Add eyelashes to the girl

Cute Ghost Faces
