I’ll give you the site name and link for the recipe and a great video.You’ll want to take a quick look at the video because it makes this and any paper mache clay project very easy to understand and do. This video gives the recipe for the paper mache clay. You don't need to add the linseed oil, in her other video she says that it isn't needed. I didn't add the linseed oil, but I did put a tablespoon of bleach in the water that I soaked the toilet tissue in. You'll want to watch this very informative video about the recipe and tips for making paper mache clay. When making the paper mache clay, be sure to measure the paper after tearing it into pieces. Instead of using your hand mixer, consider using a drill with a mixer type attachment to mix the clay. This clay stays fresh when stored in the refrigerator in an air tight container. Scrunch newspaper together and shape to make a snowman.


Use tape to define the head from the body and then cover the entire snowman with pieces of tape. Roll a small piece of newspaper and attach it to the head to make the snowman (carrot) nose. I used a wooden skewer to mark the spot for the twig arms. When the snowman was finished, I used a drill to make holes for the twigs. For the bases of the snowman, bird and chick, cut a circle from cardboard to fit the bottom of the item. Tape the cardboard circle under the snowman, bird or chick. Circle the cardboard and the bottom of the item to fill in any spaces. Later a piece of felt could be glued to the bottom to give the item a nice finished appearance. Use a table or butter knife to spread the paper mache clay onto the snowman armiture. I added little balls of clay for http://www.emilysnews.space/ eyes and the mouth of the snowman. Also I added a ring of clay around the top of the head for a stocking cap.

Then added a little more clay to the top of the head, and shaped a ball for the end of a Santa style stocking cap. This is a close up look of the snowman that has coal for the eyes and mouth. I didn't think about it at the time, but I could have added coal, for buttons, down the front also. 8. This is a closer look of the stocking cap. In the video it mentions how to smooth the finish of the clay, but I like the rougher look because I think it makes the item look more like folk art. This is a close up of the bird. You can see how I added pieces of clay to make the tail and wings. From a cereal box, I cut wing shapes, covered them with clay and applied the wings to the bird. I did the same with the tail shape.

The size of these pieces depends on the size of the bird. For the chick I just shaped pieces of clay and added them for the beak and the crown. It does take longer for the item to dry when doing it this way. The second snowman I made the eyes, mouth and buttons down the front by forming round, flat pieces that took the shape of buttons. After attaching them to the snowman, I took a toothpick and poked four holes in each of the buttons. This snowman has a stocking cap also. When the items where dry, I painted them with craft paints and sprayed them with a sealer. I crocheted a simple scarf for each of them, but a scarf could be cut from fleece with cut fringed ends. When I painted the bird, I wanted it to look like it had a sweater on, so I painted the body with a purple paint. I painted up the neck to give it a turtleneck look. Then to finish it I added the ear muffs. This chick was a fun project to paint. I love doing the dots and stripes. The dots I made using a Q-tip to get a nice sized dot. After painting the eyes white, I added a black pupil and outlined the eyes. Then a little comma of white in the pupil.I hope you try one of these paper mache clay projects. It's sooo much fun.

Bank garnishments and levies are one of the primary methods of enforcing a judgment. Often, the most difficult aspect of a bank levy, is finding out where a debtor banks. Prior to 1999, one could legally lie to their debtor to attempt to fool them into disclosing the location of their bank. The parts of conversations with judgment debtors which include lying, are called pretexting. Pretexting to get banking info, was declared illegal in 1999. This article is my opinion and is not, legal advice. I’m a judgment broker, and not an attorney. If you ever want a strategy to use or legal advice, you should contact a lawyer. In 1999, President Clinton and the US Congress passed the Gramm-Leach-Bliley (GLB) Act. This law makes it illegal to tell any deception, lie, or non-truth with the intention of obtaining the personal banking info of a bank customer. It is now illegal to make fraudulent statements, or to impersonate someone, for the purpose of gaining information such as account balances or bank account numbers.
