The cuteness level is out of this world with this kawaii moon charm. This charm is fun and easy to make!

What you need:


To begin create 3 or more shades of grey clay by mixing white and black clay.


Save back some medium grey (the middle ball) and mix the rest into a marbled looking clay. Form your marbled clay into a ball then slightly flatten it into a thick rounded circle. My circle was about the size of a quarter.


Use your smallest ball end tool to create 2 eye sockets. Roll small black balls of clay the same size as the ball end and gently press into the sockets.


To make blushed cheeks shave a little red (or pink) chalk pastel and gently brush on with a small paintbrush. You can either add a smile line on with clay or paint one on after baking.


Roll the medium shade of grey clay into small balls of varying sizes.


Press the balls of clay onto your work so they are slightly flattened. Use your small ball end tool to make craters by pressing onto the balls.


Press the ball end tool into your marbled circle in random spots to make additional craters and texture.

Insert an eye pin and bake. I baked mine at 275 for 15 minutes. When mine was dome I added a small dot of white acrylic paint to the eyes for shine.
