Step-by-step tutorial

Roll out three balls of different sizes from FIMO soft in white. Form a snowman out of them and use a needle to imitate the structure of snow.

Use the FIMO soft in white to form a hat for your snowman. Roll a long thin sheet of FIMO soft in aqua with an acrylic roller. Place it on the middle ball this is the jumper of the snowman. Press it firmly against the ball and cut off any excess with a sharp blade.

Also cover the hat with FIMO soft in aqua and cut off the excess. With the tip of a needle, make an imitation of the fabric for the hat and the jumper.

Roll out two identical sausages from FIMO soft in white - these are the arms. Wrap these two white sausages in a sheet of FIMO soft in aqua as the arms of the jumper.

Cut off one the end of the arm that is attached to the body at an angle and press it to the torso of the snowman.

Use a needle to make an imitation of the fabric on the arms of the snowman. From FIMO soft in black and roll out small balls for the eyes and mouth.

Form a very small, pointed sausage from FIMO soft in mandarin for the carrot for your snowman's nose.

To create the scarf, mix FIMO soft in white and indian red to get a pink shade. Roll out the mixed colour thinly with an acrylic roller or a clay machine and cut out a thin strip that will cover the joint between the torso and the head of the snowman.

For more realism, use soft pastel chalks to touch up the snowman's scarf and jumper. After your snowman is ready, harden it in the oven for 30 minutes at 110 ° C / 230 ° F.

After hardening, allow the snowman to cool completely. If you like, glue a pin to the back of the snowman with superglue or drill a small hole in the cap with a drill so that you can hang your snowman from it.
