Create a cute polymer clay snail to add to a planter or desk!

Create some cute snails with a shiny marble as their shells. Use them for a unique touch to your fairy garden or place one on your office desk to brighten up your work day.

What you need:

Roll some clay into a  tear drop shape.

Use your fingertip to roll the clay so the neck is thinner than the head.

Fold the neck up and slightly flatten the body.

Place a tiny drop of Liquid Fimo on the body before pressing a marble onto it.

Use your smallest detail tool to create eye sockets.

Roll out some white clay the same size as the ball detail tool and gently press the eyes into the sockets.

Trim 2 equal length of craft wire, mine were about 1.5 inches.

Pre-insert the wire antennae. Remove. Add liquid fimo the ends then re insert with the liquid fimo side going into the clay.

Bake for 15 minutes at 275.

Create a cute polymer clay snail to add to a planter or desk!

After your work is cooled, curl the antennae to your liking and use some paint to add a cute face
