It's been awhile since I posted art here! I took the plunge and tried out polymer clay. My first result felt too flat and fat. The second was a serious improvement after I realized the clay needed some softening, and after trying a new method. It's still rough and uneven, but my goal wasn't to be 100% factory quality. All I did was use metallic craft paint and sealed it off with aerosol Modge Podge acrylic sealer.
