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!

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.

Was certain it was Pierce. Even tried writing his full name when it didn't go the first time. Jackson was my second guess though.

No big deal though, a lot (lot lot) better than I could do.

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.

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.

Why do you know I'm always on every page?* Go outside.

*I'm not... and this comment was from 2 years ago. You sound like my dad who sees my aunt watching TV in the morning, leaves and is gone all day, comes home 12 hours later and sees her watching TV again, and asks why she hasn't left the house. Sometimes I think he hasn't developed object permanence. I've been commenting on this site, in my free time, for literally a decade.

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.

This is certainly a unique quiz! Your sculptures are pretty good. My lack of familiarity with US presidents is why I didn't score well on this one, not anything lacking in the Play-Doh presidents resemblance to their real life counterparts. I thought the Andrew Jackson sculpture looked like Dustin Hoffman, though I was reasonably sure he was not a past president ;)
