When you see the “helping
hand” symbol on a project, it means you may need adult
supervision to do the project. Always use care when using
tools or a heat source. Be careful and safe!
1. Scrunch aluminum foil into a cone shape.
Using Rigid Wrap® build hat/ski cap around bottom of glass
jar and over the aluminum foil cone. Let dry. Paint the hat
red. Let dry and then paint blue stripes as shown.
2. Create a snowman, and a snowboard with the polymer clay.
Scrunch up a small amount of aluminum foil to form a mountain.
Press clay over mountain. Bake clay pieces on an oven proof
glass surface at 275ºF per ¼” thickness,
with good ventilation. DO NOT USE MICROWAVE OVEN. Avoid over
baking. Let cool. (NOTE: prior to baking make sure the mountain
will fit inside the mouth of the glass jar.)
3. Glue the snowman to the snowboard, and then glue the snowboard
to the mountain. Glue the bottom of the mountain to the jar
lid. Let dry.
4. Glue hat to the base of the glass jar. Let dry.
5. Sprinkle glitter into the jar, fill with water leaving
a space for mountain and snowboarder. Screw lid on tightly.
1. After hat/ski cap is painted, carefully
poke a hole in the top of the hat. Measure and cut a 4”
x 6” rectangle of fleece. Beginning along one short
edge of the rectangle cut strips, stopping about ½”
from the opposite short end. Apply glue to the uncut short
edge and roll tightly. Dip end into glue and gently push into
the hole at the top of the hat. Let dry.
