How to Make Things out of Clay?

You can make all kinds of things out of clay. Take some clay and knead it so it softens (if it needs softening). Mold and/or cut it into whatever shape you want. Let the clay dry, and if you have the means, fire it in a kiln. This site tells you how to make a head out of clay. www.instructables.com

1 Additional Answer
You can make almost anything out of clay. Modeling clay is the easiest for at home use. Putting wax paper down on your surface will help keep the clay from sticking. Pull a piece out and start shaping. Once it's in the shape you want, let it dry, then you can paint it.
