return on creativity: frosty the clayman


Our weather can't decide if it wants to be warm or cold, but I decided to make a snowman anyway...


I started with aluminum foil balls, just like with the clay love balls.


And wrapped them in Sculpey polymer clay.


I put the balls together and drew a little face, added some black clay eyes, a carrot nose and stick arms.


All ready for the oven.  While he baked for an hour I crocheted a scarf with a "simple" chain stitch that took me almost the whole hour.  I've just never gotten the hang of crocheting.


Oh no!  My clayman took a tumble in the oven!  Unlike Humpty Dumpty I put him back together again with a little Gorilla Glue.


And he's done (although not perfect) and waiting for winter...

Luckily I still have plenty of time to perfect my snowman making skills before spring.
