Clay Deer

I had so much fun making this! I used Crayola Air-Dry Clay and it worked fine. I posted a hanging ram from cb2 and I was inspired to make a tiny deer for display. It wasn't too hard to make it. The shapes could be a bit difficult but if you break it down to pieces it's doable! I also used a small clay tool to create lines on the head and antlers for a more realistic feel. Here's how I made it.

I just used white acrylic paint and this gold metallic paint, which is so pretty that I decided to use it to paint my other projects (I'll blog about that soon).

Boo pieces broke. I had a hard time finding an adhesive that will glue the pieces together. I tried super glue, hot glue and tacky glue and it's still a bit flimsy. I'll have to figure that one out.

I'm so happy about this one. I think I'll make some more to go around our home.
