I now have a head, covered in paper clay
and this is where I make a confession.
Until today I've never thought of
drying my paper clay in the oven
How could I have been that stupid, for so long?
Don't answer that.
It means I can get from this rough-hewn stage
to smooth and paint-ready, much quicker.
And I feel like an idiot for not doing this sooner.
Why didn't someone tell me?
I have decided on a colour scheme.
Although the Rabbit is named Miss White
(White Rabbit, geddit?)
she's going to be a black and white Dutch.
fancy yellow earrings with a black t shirt,
so I've decided to dress Miss R White in a
crisp, yellow gingham dress, with black bows.
The Alice doll will be wearing blue,
(because Alices do)
Of course, all of this assumes that things go to plan...
Fancy yellow Fimo Earrings. $5 off Ebay.
I'm not the only one who thinks
Dutch rabbits look good with yellow.
|If you know where I found this Easter Card,|
please let me know so I can provide a link.
The oven drying tip?
I went to check it was safe
(just in case I'd contaminated the area and
a HAZMAT team was needed)
Apparently there's full instruction on the
30 mins+ at 250deg F
So now we know.
There's more, here. With pictures.
