Roll white Makin’s Clay® in Ultimate Clay Machine™ starting on setting #1, then #2,
finishing on #3.
Use largest size snowman cutter to cut snowman from textured clay.
Multi-Surface Satin™ paints to add hat scarf, buttons, eyes, nose and mouth to snowman. Let dry 24 hours.
Makin’s Clay® remains lightweight and flexible after drying so it’s easy to bend your snowman to make him fit inside the ornament. The slightly curved shape after he is set in place adds to the dimensional feel of the finished ornament.
Use tweezers to insert snowman into glass ball into adhesive. Leave tweezers in place to hold snowman up while the glue dries.
Use Spellbinders™ Artisan X-Plorer™ and snowflake dies to
cut snowflakes from Etchmask®. Set snowflakes aside for another project - you are using the negative space as a stencil for your etching.
Place snowflake “stencils” onto glass ball.
Apply etchall® creme to snowflakes with small brush. Let set 15 minutes. Return creme to bottle and carefully wash ornament to remove remaining creme. Remove Etchmask.
Pour Roxs™ into Snappy Tray™, Pour about 1/4” inside ornament so snowman is sitting in a snow pile.
Apply Diamond Glaze™ to bottom of ornament, dip into clear glass Roxs. Let dry.
