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.
