Zombie Sheep

Updated on May 22, 2013

Cute, Cuddly & So Very Infectious

An outbreak of Zombie Sheep is a genuine concern for many people. With their keen wit, insatiable hunger, sleek streamlined bodies and natural agility they have enormous potential to become a serious threat to mankind should they wake from the dead with carnivorous and murderous intentions.

Fortunately my Zombie Sheep pose little danger to humans or to other sheep as they are roughly the size of a walnut!

I started making Zombie Sheep about a year ago to amuse myself and others. In fact I make all sorts of cute little sheep figurines however this page will focus specifically on the undead variety.

I have also outlined some essentially important survival tips for dealing with life sized Zombie Sheep throughout this page which you may very well run the fatal risk of cracking a smile at.

Your Sheep Might Be Undead If...

1. It has suddenly become violent and moody as opposed to vacant and placid.

2. It has lost interest in sheepy activities which it once enjoyed such as: chewing grass, sleeping and pooping.

3. It is unphased by dismemberment.

4. It has eaten all of its friends.

5. Instead of "Baaa" it now says "Baaarains"

6. You find an exsanguinated Chupacabra carcass.

Materials Checklist

1. White Polymer Clay

2. Black Polymer Clay

3. Scrap Polymer Clay

4. Craft Knife

5. Paint (red & Black)

6. Glue (optional)

7. Model grass fluff (optional)

Step 1

Moulding a sheep body

The easiest way to describe this is that the sheep body is a ball with little balls stuck all over it.

To make your sheep body, first roll a ball of white clay. I prefer to work with a ball the size of a fat round grape however; you can work with whichever size you like. Remember that the size of the body ball will increase when you add the little balls!

Next make a long skinny snake of white clay and slice the snake into equal little round disks with the craft knife.

Roll the disks into little balls.

Now stick the little balls all over the big ball and squish gently so that they merge enough that there aren't any big gaps in between.

Step 2

Base and Legs

Now you are ready to make your base. The base for your Zombie Sheep is just a squished disk of clay about a quarter of an inch thick in the middle and tapering off toward the edges. I've used brown, which I intend to cover with fake grass fluff later on but you can use any colour that you want and you certainly don't have to finish off the figure with model grass. Scrap clay makes an ideal base if you intend to paint over it or cover it!

After you're finished your base you can put together some legs. Make a snake of black clay and cut into 4 equal stubby lengths. Now stick them to the bottom of your body ball and attach that to your base.

___________________________Creative Tips____________________________

* If your sheep is splatted on the ground splay the legs out to the sides of the body ball.

* If you want your sheep to have a dismembered appearance either don't include all four legs or stick one off to the side away from the body.

Defences Against Zombie Sheep

1. Cattle Grid

2. Tree House

3. Zombie Sheep Dog

4. Barbed Wire

5. Moat

6. Velcro

Step 3

Head, Ears & Tail

The head is a black fat triangular shape, the ears are smaller flatter black triangular shapes and the tail is roughly the same size and shape as the ears only in white.

The best way to attach the eyeballs is to make two tiny white balls and take a small pointed thing like a toothpick to make two little holes in the head then stick the balls inside the holes.

To attach the tail just stick it onto the bum and smooth out the edges a bit.

Parts

Step 4

Assemble

Now you get to stick all of your parts together to roughly resemble something like the photo below!

If lint and black fingerprints get stuck on your white sheep don't worry! it's supposed to look manky, it's a sheep!

A Zombie Sheep breakout in a country where the sheep actually outnumber the people. Gory, violent, hysterical and just plain brilliant!

 

Details & Bake

This is the really creative part. What I've done to make this zombie sheep unique is I have taken a "bite" out of his ear and I've put some deposits of fluff which I will be painting over with red paint to make some wholesome sheepy gore!

Be inventive!

Bake according to the instructions on the package of polymer clay.

Weapons Against Zombie Sheep

1. Flame Thrower

2. Tumble Dryer

3. Broad Sword

4. An Angry Glaswegian

5. Knitting Needles

6. Mint Sauce

Finishing Touches

Grass, Blood and Guts

Nearly finished!

Allow your sheep to cool after removing it from the oven.

If you are adding fake grass fluff then apply this first by applying some white glue to the base and sprinkling on the fluff (think glitter).

Now you mix your red and black paint to create varying degrees of red and GLOP it on all over the place!

I have glued my entire figurine onto a wooden pill box for fun and the slightest bit of practicality.

Done!

6 Reasons Why You Should Not Attempt To Reform A Zombie Sheep

1. Zombie Sheep will chew your face off.

2. Zombie Sheep smell like death. (Even worse than normal sheep)

3. Zombie Sheep do not love themselves.

4. Zombie Sheep are highly infectious.

5. Zombie Sheep believe that resistance is futile and you will be assimilated.

6. Zombie Sheep support Scientology.

      I don't know how anyone can think of these zombie sheep as "cute". I am terrified of them - so much so that I'm having to make my own zombie shepherd to herd them away!

      Umm, yes. This is a somewhat unique idea for a Lens isn't it! I am pretty certain that there are not to many Zombie Sheep Lenses out there! I hope that we do not get this zombie outbreak here in Australia as we have more sheep than New Zealand do! The Zombie koalas are bad enough! Congrats on LOTD, it was a great read. :-)
