A polymer clay snake can be a good souvenir if you make a fridge magnet out of it. It is very simple to make it, even those who are just starting to work with polymer clay can handle it.
It is necessary
Polymer clay of four colors: green, white, red, black, dark green acrylic paints, stationery knife, baking gel, plastic varnish, needle, paint brush, rubber gloves, magnet, glue
Take a piece of green clay, roll a sausage out of it. One side of the sausage should be thinner than the other.
Put on rubber gloves, continue to roll the sausage already in them. Make the thin side even thinner. Form the head of the snake from the thick side.
Twist the snake into a spiral, start at the tail. The spiral should be twisted in one plane so that the magnet glued from behind is not visible.
Use a needle to scribble a scaly pattern onto the snake's body.
Lubricate your head with baking gel. Make eyes out of white and black polymer clay and place them on top of the gel.
Make a slit in the head with a knife - you get a mouth, open it a little.
Lubricate the oral cavity with gel, insert the tongue. Make your tongue out of red clay.
Bake the snake in the oven for 15 minutes. The correct temperature is indicated on the packaging of your clay.
Apply a few strips of acrylic paint to the snake's body.
Wait for the paint to dry. Cover the finished product with varnish. Glue the magnet on the back in the center of the spiral.
The polymer clay snake is ready. You can hang the fridge magnet or give it to someone else!
