Did you know that Frankenstein's Monster and Frankenstein are not the same things? Who knew! This October, as part of Clay House Art's Halloween Classics Series, our team will feature six classic Halloween monsters and show you step by step instructions on how to create your own spooky masterpiece using air dry clay.

This week to kick off our Halloween Festivities we will be featuring:

Frankenstein's Monster


Here's what you're going to need


2 in 1 Light Clay (Green, Pink, Black, White, Brown)

Wood Square Armature

Clay Tools



~Pro-tip - make all of the detail elements before placing on the background, once the clay sticks to the background changing out an element is more difficult

1. Take the brown clay and cover the square armature until you cannot see the wood

2. Roll green 2 in 1 Air Dry Light Clay into a ball and shape into an oval to create Frankenstein's Monster's face

3. Make a small cylinder shape for eyebrows  

4. Make a small circle for the nose

5. Make two small circles for his ears and use your clay tool to add detail

6. Take your black clay and create eyes

7. Roll your black clay into a thin strip for a mouth

8. Make two small pink circles for cheeks

9. To make Frankenstein's hair, make a flat rectangle shape and use your scissors to cut the top line at various lengths leaving space at the bottom so that the hair remains as one piece of clay. 

10. Mix your black and white 2 in 1 light clay to create gray and make two rectangles for Frankensteins spark plugs

11. Assemble and place your elements in order of the picture shown above onto the background

12. Optional: Glue a magnet or keychain to make a perfect Halloween Gift
