Play-Doh Presidents

Many presidents are easily recognized from photographs and well-known paintings, but can you identify these U.S. presidents made from Play-Doh?
I did sculpt these myself, but I’m very new to this particular medium. I've learned that it's very difficult to create sculptures that resemble their real-life counterparts. Hopefully, that just adds to the challenge! :)

I appreciate all of the positive comments!! Just a couple of responses... 1) I have now specified US presidents. 2) Regarding the sculpting time, each one took roughly an hour. The exception was Nixon. The Nixon pictured here was my third attempt, and I still wasn't happy with him. :) Thanks for taking the quiz!

Then why did he use brown for a "black" man ?

Level 83
Aug 6, 2020
Technically he's half-"black".

Level 74
Aug 10, 2020
Half-black half-white is grey, not brown. If brown is half black then white people must actually be pink.

I did not get Jackson. As soon as I saw his name, I could see it does look like him. But he also looks like a cartoon character that would lead a suicide cult involving aliens and a comet.

If people know one fact about Taft, it's that he was the fattest President. If they know a second, it's that he had a huge mustache.

Those are very good! Like a few other people here, the only one I didn't recognise was Jackson.

All of these look pretty good except for Kennedy IMO. Hard to tell who that's supposed to be except through process of elimination knowing that you're looking for a president.

Kennedy was spot on. Washington was the hardest--figured he had to be in there, so I guessed him last.

This is really great. I got all of them without needing to guess once, so I'd say they're pretty accurate. John Adams looks like Waldorf, the shorter of the two old Muppets that heckle everybody.

Love these! I guessed Jackson on the first try, but I can see why some people had trouble with that one. Play-doh Jackson looks more likeable than any other depiction of the man I've ever seen. Seeing an almost cuddly version of such a dour person feels kinda dissonant.

Lol, interesting idea. But maybe you should specify that these are American presidents. I was so sure one of them was Fidel Castro.

Anyone else ever notice that Andy Jackson looks a lot like Beethoven? I never noticed until today but when you look at the google images of the two there are a few that look quite a bit alike.
