Snow pixie - tutorial

I'm sorry that giveaway gets just one of you : (

For all the others I prepared Snow pixie tutorial:

You'll need:
piece of clay or air hardening clay like Das clay
lace
needle or toothpick
cutter
brush
roller
underglaze color or watercolor (for Das clay)
glaze or varnish (for Das Clay)


















Roll piece of clay.

















Impress the lace into the clay.
















Draw a pixie with needle or toothpick.
















Cut off the redundant clay.
















Shape a face, tuft, hands and border for hood.
















Wet the area where you'll put items and stick them on pixie. 
Imprint a pattern on hood.
















If you use Das clay, soften edges before it will dry.
If you use clay, let it dry first, than soften edges with damp sponge.

Bisque fire             or            air dry the pixie (Das clay)

















Color it with underglaze colors           or           watercolors (Das clay)

















Glaze it and fire it.          Use varnish for Das clay.
















Glue a magnet to it.
