Step 1

Plasticine and a wild chestnut

Insted of plasticine, you can use any other mass for shapings

Step 2

Shaping plasticine with hands

You can pick any color you like for the body of a snail

Shape a piece of plasticine with hands in the form of a worm, then flatten the entire length, as shown below. This will be the body and you should customize the size of chestnuts to it, roughly the length of about 5cm.


Step 3

Setting a chestnut on a plasticine

On a formated body, glue a „house“, that is a wild chestnut. Bend the plasticine around the chestnut in the shape of a letter L“. Now it looks like a real snail.


Step 4

Draw a face on a plasticine with a toothpick

What you still need to do at the end is to shape a head of a this animal. The easiest way to do this is with the help of wooden toothpicks. Eyes on top of the antenna, the mouth with a smile …. this part requires a little creativity 🙂

Snail of plasticine
