VW Camper in clay

Today, I have something completely different to show you, and which I am entering in to the challenge at Make My Monday where they want ANYTHING BUT A CARD

My Sisters fiance, Russell, is VW Camper van crazy and owns a bright red one. I thought I would make them a house plate for Christmas out of Sculpey clay ( Cass don't let Russ see this post! ). I also made some dinosaur fossils for Nathan out of the scraps. 

The VW badge was the hardest thing to do, and in the end after 3 or 4 attempts, and fails, to cut the waste away, I made it in situ with a long and fine roll of clay. 

I made the scraps into a Sabre Tooth Tigers fang, a footprint, and a pendant. I haven't decided yet whether to varnish them or not, but I think the Camper van will need it to withstand the elements in winter. I'll put some leather cord through the holes of the rest so they can be hung from a zip or bag. 

Thanks for dropping by, and hope you can call back again soon

  3. Oh My Goodness! This is fantastic! I was so impressed with your VW and the emblem would have been really hard to do I agree. Your nephew is going to be so impressed with his Sabre Tooth Tiger Tooth too.


Thank you for your comment, I love to read every one, and I really appreciate your time in leaving me your thoughts.
