Please make sure your work area is covered and you are not working on an unprotected surface. We recommend working on the Sculpey® Work ‘n Bake Clay 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 ¼" (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.
Make a round ball from 1/3 package of White - this is Sam's head.
With the remaining 2/3 package of White: Make two ½" balls (these are for Sam's arms). Roll one 1 ½" ball (this is for Sam's body) then roll into a rounded barrel shape. Roll the two ½" balls into logs.
Assemble Sam's body.
Make a coil from ¾" ball of Red; flatten to make the scarf, about 5" long. Using a toothpick place some lies at each end of the scarf to resemble a fringe. Wrap the scarf around Sam's neck.
Let's put a face on Sam . . . . Sam's Nose is made from a small teardrop shape of Sweet Potato. Sam's mouth, eyes and buttons are small balls of Black, flattened or round, your choice.
For Sam's hat: with ¼ of the packet of Black make a ¾" ball and flatten it out to make the brim of Sam's hat. Make a ball about 1" and flatten both ends making a short flat "pipe-shape". Assemble the hat right on Sam's head.
Bake as directed above in Step 1. Do not handle your snowman until he is completely cool.
