This is what started all of the polymer clay fun. I saw the snowman idea on little birdie secrets and had to try it. The snowmen were so fun to make! I did not let the kids help me on these guys. Sorry kids! Mom is having too much fun! Paws off the snowmen- they are mine- all mine!!!! These are s'more snowmen- can you tell? And I'm not telling who is getting them for Christmas and what will come with them.
Alright kids, you can play with the clay now, mommy will share.....
love our 3 year old's rendition of the star and gingerbread man. And was she ever cute while she was working. Very serious job, this making clay Christmas ornaments.
We used wire for the hanger thingie. I got the cheaper clay- craft smart from Michaels. You can get lots of different colors and each little square is $1.25 (we got about $10 worth of clay and made 30 small ornaments). Sculpey, which is better quality is about $2 for a little square. But I found that the craft smart worked really well. We put everything in the oven and they all turned out great- nothing has broken--so far.
Have you ever tried polymer clay? What did you think about it?
