Toy Design

Once you figure out what type of style you want to create your design in, the next step is to create the toy design.

Sketch – Make sure your design is simple yet detailed.  Try not to create a lot of over used and thin extremities.  Draw out a few different types of sketches until you find the right one that you can build in your sketch.


Draw out a side and front view of your design so that you can use the right scale and detail in your clay model.

Maquette – When creating your maquette, you can change it up from your original sketch.  Sometimes modeling clay doesn’t work out the way that we sketch.  But try to make it as close to the sketch as possible.


Make sure when creating the model that you push parts of the models part together so that there aren’t as many holes or areas the resin would get into and break out.
