I love collecting little things... even more I love making shadow boxes with the little things. Sometimes I can't find everything I would like to put in a shadow box, so I make them! I wanted a birds nest and couldn't find one small enough. My Creative Paperclay® BIRD NEST with EGGS is the focal point.
Here is the finished nest!
To make the nests I took Creative Paperclay® and made long skinny noodles. Then laid them in a circular nest shape. The noodles are very delicate and were not adhered to each other. When they were dried I used Sakura Crystal Lacquer to hold them together.
With small amounts of clay I rolled out very small eggs!Here is the nest and eggs in the center of the shadow box after they were painted with acrylic paint.
In this box a frozen Charlotte made of Creative Paperclay® is holding one of the eggs!
Here is one of the eggs balanced on a shoe from Monopoly sitting on a dollhouse chair.
In the back is a Creative Paperclay® heart cut with a mini cookie cutter, painted with burgundy acrylic paint.
Left over from a previous project the bird is made with Creative Paperclay® in a mold!

Just think of the endless items you could make with Creative Paperclay® to add to your collection of little things to make a shadow box!
