Reindeer Snow Globe: Step 1

1. Roll a head and a body shape from brown clay. Press the head on top of the body.

 

2. Roll two legs and a little pair of leaf shaped ears from brown clay. Add a tiny bit of black clay for hoofs to the bottoms of the legs, then attach the legs to the body, blending with a cocktail stick. Round the ears with the stick and attach to the head.

 

3. Use your fingers to push into the head to create two eye sockets.

 

4. Roll two tiny black balls for the eyes and a tiny red one for the nose. Press these onto the face.

Reindeer Snow Globe: Step 2

5. Use ivory coloured clay and a cocktail stick to create two antlers. Roll into sausages then mould the clay into 'Y' shapes and attach onto the head.

 

6. Roll and cut a long thin green triangle for a scarf and attach around the reindeer's neck. Make a base if needed as per the instructions in the Santa step.

Penguin Snow Globe: Step 1

1. Begin by rolling out some black clay for the penguin's body. Shape it into an oval with one slightly larger end, making sure it's nice and smooth.

 

2. Roll out some white clay as thin as you can between two sheets of baking paper. The baking paper helps to keep the dust off the clay. Keep lifting the clay up and moving it around so it doesn't stick to your surface. Then use a knife to cut out the penguin's belly, using the picture for reference. Press the belly onto the body.

 

3. Roll two black sausages and flatten them a little for flippers. Press them onto the sides of the body using a cocktail stick to blend the clay together.
