Polymer Mugs – #3 – Nintendo Controller

I FINALLY finished the 4 Polymer Mugs I was making for birthdays on Wednesday!!!!!  I have posted the first two I made, Polymer Mug #1 and Polymer Mug #2 previously, so now it’s time for the last two. I still need to put a light coat of varethane on them but at least the part that takes the time is completed!

I decided to do a mock Nintendo controller on the mug for my son-in-law because he is a game/comic nerd lol…. hence the Baby “Geek” Dress I posted that I made for my granddaughter!  This mug was fairly easy to do.  The hardest part was trying to keep the edges straight for me.

I still don’t know if they are dishwasher safe because I haven’t actually gifted any of them yet, but I would guess not.  On most of them there are pieces that could fall off so I think I would just hand wash them!


For this one, I started off by putting a large rectangle in gray on the mug as the background, followed by a slightly smaller black rectangle to form the main part of the “controller.”

I made a gray and then black “cross” shape for the buttons on the left side of the controller.

Next I added the rest of the gray buttons and lines that are on a Nintendo controller.

And then finished it off adding the red and black buttons that go on the gray sections of the controller.

I put it on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and baked it at 250 degrees for an hour, letting it cool down with the oven…. and that was it…. another Polymer Clay Mug completed!
