First of all you have to buy some FIMO modelling clay or something similar in the colours you like ( maybe you want to have a purple boar !? ).

Then you need a toothpick and a cutterknife ( or something similar ).

You need the following pieces:

Arrange the feet like these:

Form the body:


Attach the body to the feet:

Cut the mouth:

Form the teeth:

Stick the teeth into the mouth:

Bend the teeth upwards:

Close the mouth:

Attach the nose above the mouth:

Use the toothpick to make the holes into the nose:

Use the knife to make some scratches at the body:

Form the tail:

Attach the tail to the body:

Attach the first part of the eyes to the body:

Attach the second part of the eyes to the body:

Attach the ears to the body - Ready:

Excellent "how-to" post Frank! Nicely illustrated with step-by-step photos.

Thanks for sharing!

I have a couple questions:

How long does this take?

Any tips for working with FIMO?

Cheers,

Matt

One Boar ( or cow or sheep ) takes 3 - 5 minutes, depending on your skill.
Tip: If your Fimo gets warm during the modelling ( much folding and squeezing ) let it cool down a little bit, because it stays in shape better when it is colder.
The best is to work like i a factory production line when you have to produce more than one figure, so you can clean your hands after the use of a dark colour. Especially white picks up the remaining colour at your hands when you form different colours in a row.

Your tutorials are awesome! Thanks for taking the time to put them up.

I have a question/request. Would you mind putting up estimates on how much clay went into each set of pieces? I'd love to buy the clay at a deal online, but don't know how much to get. Do you need more than one small brick of each color to do a full set of boars (or cows, or sheep, etc.)?

Thanks again. Your work is great!
