Love to create?
Love to make small cute things?
Love to celebrate your birthday in a big, big, BIG way?
Love to hang out with your friends, your best-ests of friends?
Then I have a great news for you! You can book the best birthday party OF YOUR LIFE with us at 4Cats! You can go ahead and check out all of our offerings here, but today I want to bring focus on one of my favourite party to teach—the oven-bake clay party! 😍
The oven-bake clay that we use in the studios is called Ditto, and it's the coolest and most fun ever! What is oven-bake you may ask? It is a type of polymer clay that is already coloured, which you can mix to make other shades and tones, that you can then bake in the oven to harden! Which means it never dries out, can be blended and sculpted into the shape you want.
It is super fun to teach because there are so many different themes, so many different shapes and so many different combinations that can be made to create awesomely creative sculptures. Like I always tell people—these sculptures are not hard to do, it's all about making simple shapes. The challenge lies in the proportions, but all you gotta do is listen closely to your curator (or follow the instructions in your kits, but more about this further down 😉).
SO MANY OPTIONS!
The actual hardest part of this whole process is to pick which theme to use to celebrate your party! I separated them into categories, to hopefully help narrow down your decision!
1. Mythical creatures
You love all things mythical? Well, we got some things in stock for you! Now to choose between magical unicorns 🦄, splendid dragons 🐲 or glow in the dark yetis —that is the next step!
2. Wild animals
Do you climb everywhere like a monkey 🐒? Or are you as wise as a fox? Or as cute as a racoon? Pick your wild animal and come and create your own mini cute version of it in the studio!
3. Colourful skies
Is this a bird in the sky 🐤? Or a flying house 🏠🎈? Who knows! But it doesn't matter, pick the one you love, they're both bright and full of colours, you'll be sure to have a rainbow 🌈 of a good time!
4. Castle buddies
Do you dream of hanging out in the castle all day, with your princesses & princes buddies, and their knight friends, running away from the king and the queen to run havoc everywhere? Come and make your own little version of your favourite character—princess or knight?
5. For the #foreverhungry
Are you one of those forever hungry people? Make your own fast food sculpture! You can't eat it, but you can keep it forever! All the pleasure, zero calories - sounds good to me!
If you still can't decide on whether you love painting or Ditto better, I suggest have a look at our La Soiree Cupcake, since you get to sculpt AND paint!
