Project Instructions

  1. Use blue pearl paint to coat the outside of the clay pot.
  2. When dry, paint the igloo lines with the point of a foam paintbrush using pearl white acrylic paint.  Use the paint to make horizontal parallel lines about 1/2-inch apart or less in a circular pattern around the outside of the pot.  Connect the parallel lines with vertical lines in a staggered checkerboard pattern, spacing about 1-inch apart.  Lines can be irregular and do not have to connect to make each block look like an ice block used to form an igloo.
  3. While igloo is drying, make a 2-inch long hotdog shaped roll of Model Magic, as long as the diameter of the bottom of the igloo.  Squeeze one end to a tapered point, then flatten this end.  It should resemble a seal shape.
  4. Draw white lines with the Glitter Glue.  Shape face with a very tiny point for the seal's nose.
  5. Poke tiny holes for eyes.  Add a pinch of glue into each eye hole and glue on a bead for eyes.  Glue a tiny pom-pom onto nose.
  6. Cut two flippers out of white craft foam and glue to underneath side of seal as shown.
  7. Glue seal on top of igloo.  Model Magic will dry overnight.


Make this cool pal from the frozen north.
