Trim Styrofoam ball to one third, you will only need this piece. Take the cut third piece and cover the rounded side of the ball with some white Hearty Clay. Set aside.
Using the hearty Clay Color scale as a measuring tool, measure out two “I” balls of white Hearty Clay. Roll together to form one smooth round ball. This is for the body. Measure out one “I” ball of white Hearty clay and roll into a smooth ball for the head. Measure out ½ of an “A” ball of orange Hearty Clay. Roll and shape into a small cone for the “carrot nose” and set aside.
Use the rounded end of the thin paintbrush handle to make two small holes in the head for the eyes. Use the rounded end to dip dot paint the eyes with black acrylic paint. Let dry. Use the tip of a bent paperclip to make a small dot of white acrylic paint on the eyes for accent. Use the dip dot method to make a semi-circle of black dots below the eyes for the smiling “coal” mouth.
With the red acrylic paint, make two small dots side by side above one side of the mouth. Use the tip to pull the paint dots together in the middle to make a small heart for the cheek. Repeat on the other side of the mouth. Use Tacky glue to adhere the orange clay nose in the center below the eyes.
Attach the head to the body and use a little Tacky glue to hold if necessary. Make a larger dip dot heart on the upper left of the body with the red acrylic paint. Let paint dry.
