AMACO® Fun Wire™ — Brown
Needle nose pliers
Note: All photos and diagrams are displayed at the end of the instructions.
Mark the center of the stick of Green Plast-i-Clay® (see “A” on Top View diagram). Make a Mark at one end of the stick in the center (see “B” on Top View diagram) and two marks at the other end (see “C” on Top View diagram).
Make two cuts from “A” to “B” to make a point for the tail. Mark across the stick about 1/4 from the other end (“D”). Make two cuts from “C” to “D” for the head.
Make a mark at each end of the stick, about halfway down (see “E” on Side View diagram). Cut the stick horizontally ONLY FROM “A” TO “E” AND FROM “E” TO “D”. The stick should now be thicker in the middle than the ends.
Smooth the squared edges and any cut marks. Bend the stick into an “S” shape with the tail end more curved than the head.
Using the knife or your fingers, build up areas over the eyes, nose, jaw, and back of the head (see photo). Take the remaining Green Plast-i-Clay® and roll into a log then cut into fourths for legs. Attach legs to the body, rubbing with finger to blend into the body, press the ends flat, then cut out toes.
Using the sharp end of a pencil, make holes for the eyes and press small balls of Yellow Plast-i-Clay® into the sockets. Press Yellow balls with pencil to create eyes. Make holes in the end of the nose for nostrils. Starting under one eye, make a cut toward the nose, under the nose, and around under the other eye for the mouth (see photo).
Make teeth, nails, and scales on back of tail with Gray Plast-i-Clay® (see photo).
Cut a stick of Brown Plast-i-Clay® in half (2½" long). Cut one of the halves lengthwise into four equal sheets. Shape piece(s) of aluminum foil to make “chest, belly and tail” (see diagram “A”). Using the foil shape as an armature, form the four sheets of Brown Plast-i-Clay® around the outside. Be sure to cover evenly.
Cut four 2" lengths of Brown Fun Wire™ and two 4" lengths. Take two of the two inch lengths and wrap one around the other (see diagram “B”). Take one of the four inch lengths, bend it in half, then wrap around the already prepared two inch length continuing upward until wire is completely wound (see diagram “C”). Tighten with pliers for a firm hold. Repeat to make second leg.
Make three balls with Brown Plast-i-Clay®, one about the size of a golf ball and the other two the size of marbles. Cut a 2" length of Brown Fun Wire™. Press one end of the wire into the neck of the body leaving 1" exposed. Press the large ball of clay onto the wire. Roll out a piece of Brown Plast-i-Clay® about the diameter of a pencil to wrap around neck. Smooth seams with fingers to connect head with body.
Attach the two smaller balls of clay at the base of the body for “hips”. Secure them by pressing wire legs through “hips” and into the body. Cover seams with strips of Brown clay and smooth with fingers just like the neck.
Cut a sheet of Brown clay (from remaining stick in step 1) that is ¾" wide and " thick for the tail. Cut a sheet of Gray clay the same size. Press the brown sheet to the underside of the body, extending out from the body, then blend into the body with fingers. Cut a “V” shape from one end of the Gray sheet (see diagram “D”). Press on top of brown tail, aligning straight end with brown tip of tail and “V” end at base of body. Do not blend to the body. Draw a line with knife from the “V” to the end of the tail (see diagram “D”). The tail and two legs form a “tripod” to balance the robin while standing.
Flatten out a sheet of Gray clay and cut out shapes E, F, and G after enlarging the illustrations on a copier. Place shape “E” under the tail and between hips and press into place. Flatten out a thin sheet of Red clay to cover chest and belly. Press shape “F” under throat and press into place. Press shape “G” (wings) on back and wrap around until both sides touch red chest. Draw lines in wings with knife to indicate feathers.
Cut a 2" length of wire and bend in half for beak. Press the folded end into head and cover exposed ends with Yellow clay. Using the sharpened end of a pencil, make holes in head for eyes about the diameter of the pencil. Roll two balls of Gray clay and place into sockets. Press pencil into Gray clay balls to create an opening for eyes. Mix equal parts of Red and Green (or Red and Blue) to make a dark gray for eyes. Roll two small balls of dark gray and press into eye rings. Roll out a small string of brown or red clay for worm and place into the robin’s beak.
Note: Illustrations A, D, E, F and G are for shape only. Enlarge to desired size before shaping or cutting clay.

Conversely, Non-PII is data that is not used to specifically identify, contact or locate an individual, including but not limited to zip code, gender, age, or IP address.

HOW DO WE USE THIS INFORMATION?
We may use the collected PII and Non-PII for any legally permissible purpose in our sole discretion, including but not limited to those explained below.
We may serve advertisements to you based, in part, on your IP address, the demographic and geographic information you submitted to the Company during the website registration process, and other socio-economic information, psychographic information, Internet behavior (i.e., browsing, search, shopping, purchase, and ad response behavior), and lifestyle information about you that we obtain from affiliated entities and from third parties.
We allow third-party companies to serve ads and/or collect certain anonymous information when you visit our Web site. These companies may use non-personally identifiable information (e.g., click stream information, browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services likely to be of greater interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or third party web beacon to collect this information. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice or to opt-out of this type of advertising, you can visit www.networkadvertising.org.
Our website technology may pre-select certain offers for you to view based on the demographic and geographic information you submitted to the Company during the website registration process. Additionally, this technology may pre-fill some or all of the offers' data fields with the information you submitted during the website registration process in order to prevent you from having to re-enter this information. We may not show all of the pre-filled data fields to you.
We utilize customized post transactional or "upsell" technology to help advertisers generate sales, while providing you with a series of great offers we think may be of interest to you. The way it works is simple: once you purchase a product or service from one of our reward advertisers, you will be offered additional products or services that we think may be of interest to you. If you elect to purchase products or services from an advertiser in the post transactional channel, we will pass the information that you provided during the initial transaction to the subsequent advertiser, including but not limited to your credit card information. This information pass is done to enhance and simplify your purchasing experience. Your information will only be passed to an advertiser in the post transactional channel after you have elected to purchase their product or service. By electing to purchase their product or service you consent to the passing of your data to the third party advertiser in question.
Customer Service and Fulfillment
We may use your information to operate the website promotion, service your account and to fulfill rewards earned through Company websites.

We do retain customer service correspondence.
Credit Card Preauthorization
By submitting your credit card information to us or to one of our advertisers, you are authorizing the Company or its agent to periodically verify that your credit card account is valid and has credit available by charging, and thereafter crediting, a small sum to the card.
We may use your information in our online (e.g., e-mail marketing) and offline (e.g., telemarketing, cell phone text messaging, skip tracing, and direct mail) marketing programs. If you would like to be removed from these programs please write to us.
