Using the Hearty
Clay Color Scale, measure out two “I” balls of White Hearty Clay and a
“C” ball of Red Hearty Clay. Mix
the clay together
to get the pink color.
Form the pink
colored clay; measure out one “H” and one “I” ball of clay. Roll
together to make the body. Shape the clay
into a gumdrop
shape or rounded cone about ¾” tall for the body. Set aside.
Measure out an “F”
ball of pink clay. Roll into a log about ¾” long. Cut in the log in
half. Round out each end of each log. These are the arms. Slightly curve
the arms and attach to the upper front of the body. Use a little tacky
glue if necessary. Measure out two “A” balls of Flesh Hearty Clay.
Attach a ball to the end of each arm for the hands. Set aside.
Measure out an “H”
ball of Flesh Hearty clay. Roll into a round ball for the head. Using
the end of a toothpick, make two tiny holes in the center where the eyed
should be. Place a tiny dot of glue in each hole and place a black seed
bead in the hole for the eyes. Roll out two tiny balls of pink clay and
flatten into 1/8” circles. Place on either side below the eyes for the
Attach the head to
the body using a piece of toothpick to hold together and a little tacky
glue if necessary.
Roll the rest of
the pink clay into a 1 ½” log. Measure out some white clay and roll out
a similar log. Twist the two together to form a striped candy cane. Bend
into the candy cane shape and trim ends. Round off the ends of the cane.
Attach the candy cane to the front of the hands on the fairy. Use a
little tacky glue if necessary.
Fold the iridescent
cellophane/Mylar in half twice, making four layers. Place the wings
pattern on along the folds as indicated. Cut out wings. Unfold
cellophane/Mylar and separate into two double-wings and twist in the
center. Make a
small hole in the
back of the fairy with a toothpick. Add a little glue and stick the
twisted center of the wings in place.
Fluff out the
Brush on a little
tacky glue on the candy cane and spots you want to highlight on the
fairy. Sprinkle glitter on the glue
and let dry.
