    Step 1:

    1. Divide the clay block into eight equal sections. We used 10 ounces of clay in a block that is 7" x 3" x 5/8" thick.

    Step 3:

    1. Pinch one end of the clay ball into a pointed shape.
    2. Press the pointed clay ball flat on a smooth surface.
    3. Keep working the clay into a candy corn shape by flattening and pinching the clay. Our finished candy corn is approximately ½" to ¾" thick, and 1 ½” wide by 2" tall.
    4. When the shape is well developed, roll the clay candy corn on its side to create smooth, rounded corners.

    Step 4:

    1. Use a paint brush to press lines into the clay candy corn, dividing the shape into thirds. Have the lines continue around all sides of the candy corn.
