When you make a squishy, there are many different way to do it. But today, I will show you the easiest method to make a cute squishy koala. This method is very different to covering a sponge with fabric paints since you can create extremely detailed shapes like this koala.I hope that you guys can do it easily because actually, it isn’t difficult like you used to think.
- HITOHADA gel : The secret behind making squishy is this product. This is only commercial available kit that lets you create your own DIY objects with a stretchy texture. Heathrow hydrogel is basically a two-part resin mixture and it comes in three different types. One of them is used for making milky colored squishy ( you will see a mascot on the bottles as well so you know which one is the base resin)

Now, let’s get started!
Homemade Cute Bunny Squishy Tutorial
First, let’s get back to the basics. To make a completely How to make Squishy Koala first, you’ll have to make a polymer clay model of the shape you want. ( Color doesn’t matter here).
Because the polymer is a lot more heat and water resistant than paper clay. I’m making a phat koala so I’m going to start out with two pieces like this for the head and body.
It should be look like this:
You use the cat’s Croesus reference so while you’re working you have to check that everything is roughly the same size.
When making duplicate shapes like arms legs or ears always take a piece of clay first and divide that into half. This ensure that one side won’t end up larger than the other and makes the sculpture look more symmetrical.
It should be look like this: (If you’re not happy with the size and press both pieces together, remove some clay and then divide it in half again)
For the legs, I’m using two small triangular shapes once again created from one piece of clay, so both are exactly the same size.
To make ear, cut across one side with scissors so the edge fits perfectly along the head. This look more professional there simply pressing on two round balls for ears.
Once you’re happy with the overall shape, take a toothpick and starts moving down the edges. This step really makes a big difference so spend as long as you can here, making sure that each part blends seamlessly into the next.
Lastly, I’m making the nose using a tiny piece of flattened clay and then using a toothpick to smooth down the edges. You can also roll the toothpick across the surface like this, make sure everything looks smooth. Any imperfections in your clay will also end up on the squishy so it’s worth spending a bit more time to make sure everything looks good
And finally just bake the clay according to packet instructions.
Once this is hardened and cooled we can now turn it into a squishy mold.
I decided to sand the surface a bit using polishing pads but this step is completely optional.
I’m using a two-part silicone mold maker. The only downside is that this is quite expensive and you can’t reuse it encasing mess up.
Start by mixing equal parts together then create a smooth shape large enough for the piece you want to mold hold it upside down and press it downwards into the silicone from my experience
Then create a smooth shape large enough for the piece you want to mold .
Hold it upside down and press it downwards into the silicone .From my experience, this method works much better than placing silicone over your model because that tends to create a lot more air bubbles.
It will be look like this:
After the mold is completely set which should take about 15 minutes pop it out and check that. There are no air bubbles or creases inside.
We’re continuing with heat ojeda gel part two.You have to use gloves because these bottles don’t pour very easily so you’ll end up getting a lot of resin on your skin which is not ideal.
I measure out 18 grams of Base resins followed by six grams of hardener then I mixed everything together and poured into the mold.
Then I mixed everything together and poured into the mold.
Make sure your mold will be completely dry before you fill it up. It’s not a bad idea to hold it in front the hairdryer for a few seconds just to make sure you get rid of all the moisture.
You will see how this white one turned out this will seem self cured quite well and has a soft silicone lag texture when removing a screw
When removing a screw you have to peel them out extremely carefully because otherwise they can rip. Try to keep your fingers under the whole piece and gently lift it from the mold.
It should be look like this:
Simply sprinkle the powder all over the squishy and rub it over every surface.
We’re going to add some eyes and nose, for this elite acrylic paint and white PVA glue.
First, we will mix equal amount of paint and glue together.
You brush with a tiny amount of paint and carefully fill in the areas on your squishy.
When you paint very small details like eyes I recommend using a toothpick because that’s a lot easier to control. If you hold your breath on working then your hand is a lot more steady.
For the final touch, I’m going to add some cheeks using blusher.
The best applicator is a cotton bud and you can use the other side to blend things out.
So now ou DIY koala squishy is finally finished.
