Half-Baked Snowmen

I decided to try a new craft that I saw in a magazine.  I went to Michael's and bought air-dry clay, styrofoam balls, sturdy wire and even my very own pink wire cutters.  Then proceeded to make a huge mess as I tried to form snowman faces with the clay over the balls.

I have found out that I am not a sculptor!  Looks kind of like the Seven Dwarves, doesn't it!

It took forever for these to dry.  I wanted to paint them yesterday, but after sanding, I still had so many cracks that I had to make a paste with the clay and do some repairs.  See the spaces between the head and the hats?

We'll see how they turn out after drying and sanding a second time.  Stay tuned!
