Polymer Clay Snail Tutorial Instructions
- First chose your clay colors.
- Marble a few colors together.
- Make a long snake & taper each end.
- Roll the snake into a round coil.
- Make a tapered log from another color.
- Pinch a “neck” area.
- Place the two pieces together firmly.
- Take a small amount of a complimentary color and make a semi-circle shape.
- Place on top of the head.
- Add a flat strip around the seams (this will make an instant cloche hat).
- Add a few flowers or decoration to the snail shell & body area (this will offer additional support to the seam).
- Use a needle tool to insert eyes.
- Give your little snail a nose & mouth.
- Add some wire antennas.
- Add decoration to your snail.
- Bake in your polymer clay dedicated oven for 45-60 minutes on 275 degrees covered in foil.
