To make the neck and head use the small cup and cone coil made from the light green colour and stick them together, then press the smaller end of the cone to flatten it.
Now adhere the small light green tight coils made earlier to the big dark green cup coil wchich is the shell of the turtle. Also adhere the small loop coil on the center of the shell on top.

Now let it dry for some time and then adhere the legs as shown

Later when all this is dry adhere the neck as shown
