Step 1: With BONUS "Get Fancy" Tip!
Roll largest BOC on flat surface to elongate slightly; press bottom of elongated BOC on flat surface to
form a tall-ish dome.
Get Fancy: Want a horned owl? After Step 1, use your fingers to pinch ear tufts on top of your owl's head.
Use marble to press two side-by-side indentations near top of dome, to make eyes.
Roll 1/4-inch BOCs on a flat surface until they're roughly 1/3-inch in length.
Use finger to flatten 1/3-inch rolls into ovals.
Press two ovals onto bottom of owl so that they stick out slightly in front, to create the feet.
Press one oval onto each side of owl, to create wings.
Press two super-tiny BOCs into centers of eye indentations to give your owl the gift of sight.
Use finger to flatten moderately tiny BOC into a circle, then carefully shape into a triangle; press flat triangle against front of owl, below eyes, to make the beak.
