One of the things you do when applying for a design team is to make something using the product you want to be on the design team for and post it on your blog to be judged. This is my audition piece. I’ve been on the Creative Paperclay ® design team for awhile now but I can tell you that I still love this air dry clay. With Easter coming round, I wanted to make a rabbit head. For this project I used:
a styrofoam ball
Sakura Crystal Lacquer w/Terri Sproul Mixers
Metallic acrylic paint
Paper Mache’ Box
I started out by gluing my aluminum foil rabbit ears onto the styrofoam ball and then covering the ball with Creative Paperclay®.
I had to put the clay on the front of the rabbit and let it dry first so that I could hang onto something while I put the clay on the rest of the styrofoam ball. I inserted the eyes too.
I had to prop it up to keep it from rolling off while the rest of the head dried. Those ears kept making it want to fall over. LOL
While the head was drying this time, I painted the bottom of my paper mache’ box with Crystal Lacquer mixed with the Terri Sproul mixer “Tanzinite Blue” This color turns a green color when painted on a brown box. I painted the lid with Metallic Acrylic Pink. Once the head was completely dry I painted it and glued it onto the box with E6000 and tied my ribbon around that when the glue dried.
I think it turned out terrific don’t you? Creative Paperclay ® is just so much fun to work with. This rabbit could have been made to look like the rabbit in Alice In Wonderland or maybe a Steampunk rabbit, there are many possibilities.
I love to read your comments, and they’re all important to me.
