  3. FINS: Roll a 1/2" ball into a log 1/2" long. Fold in half to create fins. Press one fin to each side of body.

Shape a 1/4" Orange ball into a triangle and press over face for beak. Press a little ball under beak for lower lip. Press a hole for eyes with end of clay shaper and drop in beads. Draw in feather marks with needle tool.
     
  5. SCARF: Roll two 1/4" diameter logs of Pacific Blue and Brilliant Blue. Lay logs side by side, alternating colors. Cut off 1/4" sections and press flat. Wrap these sections around the neckline. Make streamers using same technique.
     
  6. Press a toothpick into neckline area and trim off leaving 1/4" exposed. Press head over toothpick.
     
  7. HAT: Flatten out desired color for hat. Cut into a rectangle 2" x 3". Wrap around head trimming off excess. Add a contrasting color ball to point of hat. Add brim using scarf technique.
     
  8. FEET: Roll a 1/2" ball into a log. Round off ends and fold in half. Add to bottom of penguin for feet.
     
  9. Add buttons, hearts or any other desired embellishments. For pink penguin, use the same technique with the exception of alternating Raspberry and Mandarin.
