Chile the Snowman
1. Put together 3 styrofoam balls of descending sizes. Toothpicks can be used to hold them together.
2. Cover styrofoam balls with white paper mache clay, made up per directions.
3. Use polymer clay to make eyes, nose, mouth, and arms. Bake polymer clay, and use the pieces you made to create indentations in the clay while it is still wet to allow them to be inset into the figure later. It is especially important to create a space to push the arms through the clay and the styrofoam balls. Allow clay to dry before gluing in place.
4. Add clothes as desired. May not want to glue the arms in as it makes for easier dressing to remove them.
