Playing with Clay

As we all know it is getting closer to christmas and each year we have a tradition to handmade our decorations.  This years we are making snowmen from clay!  We had lots of fun today with them they are not finished they need to be painted and glittered.  I just wanted to show you what we did.  Mine are the two on the left and my wonderful 10 year old made the ones on the right he did an amazing job!  I wanted to use the paperclay but as I live in australia I have not been able to find it so I just used a white air drying clay. Hopefully by the end of the week we should have them finsihed! We need to let them dry for 48 hours.  Have a beautiful saturday Lisa

I am awaiting the final product. I've been checking out the paperclay when I go to the craft store and I just can't get myself to take that step to purchase it. Maybe once I see what your little heads look like when they are done, I might take that extra step. I'm excited to see them finished.
