Gather your supplies. I'm using Sculpey III clay.
With clean hands, mix some translucent clay with a small piece of yellow clay.
It should create a lighter yellow, like this.
With a smaller ball of more translucent clay, mix it with a small piece of green clay.
Add more translucent or colored clay to get the shades you like.
Shape the yellow ball into a puffy egg shape.
Use a toothpick or needle tool to roll across the pineapple to give it a texture.
Go back the same way
You should end up with something like this.
Using a clay blade or an X-Acto knife, cut out a small triangle shape in the top of your pineapple.
Roll out your green clay into a thin log.
Cut it into small pieces, roughly the same size.
Roll the pieces into long, flattened cones.
Place 4 cones at the top cutout of your pineapple.
Keep layering your cones until you're happy with the look.
I added 12 leaves to my pineapple.
(Optional) Dust your pineapple with some chalk pastels using a paint brush to give it more color.
(Optional) If you want to add a face, take some black clay and roll it into small balls. Add them to the pineapple along with a small log for the mouth.
When you're happy with your pineapple, bake it according to your clay package instructions. I'm putting mine in at 250*F for 15-20 minutes.
Once it's cooled down, you can glaze it.
Be creative! Make necklaces, rings, magnets, notebooks. Have fun making your own pineapples!
Give rings to your friends!
Make a mini book using book binding, glue it on, and you have a cute notebook!
Good luck and have fun!
