Sculpt a purple clay electric eel

First of all take the clay and make a roll. Now keep rolling to form a roll that has one end large and the other end smaller at the tip. Now bend the roll upwards from the middle. Now take a match stick. Now use this to make a hole to make the mouth. Use to fingers to make the corners of the mouth round in shape. Make the mouth wide and open. Now make the eyes by using a matchstick to pierce the sockets. Now take a little clay and then make a roll of it. Now make a leg out of it by making the end large and the tip at the end smaller. Flatten the large end to make a paw and then lengthen the leg and then bend it at the knee. Make four such legs. Now attach these four legs on the figure. Use a tool to make the scars lines disappear by smoothening the whole surface. Your figure is now ready. You need to color it. First of all you have to make a line of little rolls of color that you want to use as shown in the video. Mix all the clay together and then make small rolls out of it. Then line them once again as per the darkness of the color. Now take small bits of clay from these color balls and then flatten them with your fingers. Now stick them to the body of the figure. Start from tail and then move to the rear legs. Than cover the body and then move up. Take care to use the light color clay at the tail and the darkest color clay to cover the face of the figure. However you shall notice that the body is now made up of lots of colored dots. To make it disappear you have to use a tool and then press at the dots. By doing so the clay shall merge within the body and then the skin shall smoothen out. Make the lips and the inside of the eyes and the mouth with red color. Add some claws to the paws and teeth to the mouth. Insert eyeballs in eye sockets. Make sure that the eyes are perfect because if not the whole figure may not be look good. You can place a ball within the tail. Now bake this clay in a oven. That's it.
