  • Method:
        1. Take all of neon yellow clay and roll out a long rope. Lay the snake on top of the paper pattern covered with a clear plastic sheet. Coil clay and make head stick out on one side. Shape head then flatten coil slightly. Leave to partly dry while you make the decorations.
        2. Roll white clay into two balls for eyes and add pupils with black marker. Cut a small piece of red clay to make fork tongue. Attach eyes and tongue to head. Roll neon orange, pink and blue into 1mm thin sheets using Makin's Roller.
        3. Layer the three sheets onto each other and trim into rectangle.
        4. Tightly roll up the rectangular layers into coil. Wait 20-30 minutes for the drying then cut into 1mm thick slices and spread randomly onto snake, securing with white glue.
        5. Wait for the snake body to be half dry then glue onto wooden frame. Leave overnight to dry thoroughly.
