My Deranged Snowman with his musicbox / sculpture with process and video

Montreal is usually a super snowy city at this time of year but of course when theres a snowman contest there isn't a drop of snow in sight!

I still wanted to enter the deranged snowman contest hosted by @carlgnash so I decided to sculpt an entry and will maybe make a real snowman if the weather allows it!

For materials I used super sculpey which is a really fun sculpting caly that you can bake in the oven. I haven't touched this clay for many years and I was afraid it would be dried out. It was a little difficult to work with but after massaging it for a while it became usable again!

Here are the first few lumps of clay:

At this point I baked it in the oven (overcooked a bit! the horns turned brown) than I started slapping some paint on it:

A few more coats of paint and some varnish to make it SHINY and the head was done!

I didn't have enough sculpey to also make a body so I improvised by sticking the head on top of a bottle and made a little coat and scarf to hide it :) I added some twig arms I grabbed from my long dead basil paint and voila!

While I was digging around in my craft box (it's huge and I have so much junk in there) I found this little wind up music box which seemed perfect to accompany this creepy snowman!

I even made a creepy deranged little video so you can hear the music:

Looking forward to seeing the other entries and thanks for the inspiration @carlgnash!

Super creepy snowman! Demonic. Impressed by how you documented your work sequence. Love it! So awesome :)

Thanks so much, I used to sculpt a lot I should do it more :)

That is sooooooo good... LOVE IT!!! He needs to be mass-produced and replace the elf on the shelf. "Be good Johnny or the Deranged Snowman will take your soul... Now, who wants to make cookies???"

Haha I have the head on my desk now and I don't know what to do with it, it's just staring at me 0_0

Screw an eye hook into his little head and hang him on the xmas tree so he can stare at everyone :)

Um... that youtube video with no context is TERRIFYING! It reminds me of those compilation videos showing extremely strange/creepy things.
I mean, overall... this MAY be the MOST deranged snowman ever...

You win?
