How to do a Squishy with clay?

Once the Squishy will have hardened, it will have its final shape, you can then start the painting stage to make it truly unique!
How to create a Squishy with paper?
To create this type of Squishy, make a small sketch with a piece of paper and a pen. Then fold the paper in half with the design facing you (split the design) and cover the paper with masking tape to secure it. You can then close it with the adhesive tape while leaving a small hole for the filling. To fill your Squishy, you can use the down of a synthetic pillow or paper or plastic for example.
How to do a Squishy with a ball?
The objective here will be to use a balloon to achieve create your Squishy ! You can fill it with the material of your choice. We advise you to use flour for this type of Squishy. You can use a leaf as a funnel to fill your balloon neatly. Remove as much air as possible then tie a knot.
We recommend using markers to make your little Squishy really unique, instead of the paint which would not hold on the material of the balloon.
