Project Instructions
    Getting Started:
Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Oven-Safe Work Mat, wax paper, metal baking sheet, or disposable foil. Uncured clay may damage unprotected furniture or finished surfaces. Be sure to cover your crafting area appropriately.

Start with clean hands, unwrap and knead clay until soft and smooth, or condition by running clay though a Pasta Machine. We recommend using a designated machine for clay purposes only. When working with multiple colors, clean hands with soap and water or baby wipes (we have found that baby wipes work best) before switching colors. Shape clay, pressing pieces firmly together. Wash hands after use.

Begin by preheating oven to 275 °F (130 °C). After you are done creating; for best results bake clay on an oven-proof surface such metal, aluminum foil, an index card or the Sculpey® Clay Mat at 275°F (130 °C) for 15 minutes per 1/4" (6 mm) thickness according to package directions. Oven safe glass or ceramic surfaces are also acceptable for baking; however please note that the baking times may take longer as the glass or ceramic surfaces take longer to heat up. For best baking results, use an oven thermometer. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. DO NOT EXCEED THE ABOVE TEMPERATURE OR RECOMMENDED BAKING TIME.
Roll three balls of White clay for the snowball body of your snowman. The smallest being approximately 1/2” in diameter and the other two slightly larger than the next. Press your finger into each White ball to flatten.  Press the three flatten balls together from smallest at the top to largest at the bottom. Insert the eye pin down through the snowman’s body from the top of the head.
Roll two tiny balls of Black clay for the snowman’s eyes. Press onto the head. Roll three more small Black balls of the clay for the buttons. Press these down the center of the snowman.Roll a small ball of Orange clay. Roll into a cone/carrot shape. Trim to fit your snowman. Press on to the center of the head.
Roll out some Blue clay with your rolling pin until it is approximately 1/8” thick. Cut a thin 1/4” wide piece for the snowman’s scarf. Trim to fit and wrap around the snowman’s neck. Use your knife to create little vertical fringe lines at the ends of the scarf.
Set onto your baking sheet. Repeat and make another snowman in the same way but this time make a Red scarf. Set onto baking sheet.
Bake according to the directions in Step 1. Allow to cool and enjoy!
