Have you ever been walking along and spotted someone creating animal shapes out of balloons? To me, it is so much fun to watch. After all, you start out with a latex tube that is often times full of the air we don't need anymore! Unless of course someone wants to make floating balloon animals. ;) Well, that is the inspiration for today's Creative Paperclay project.I've used Delight air dry modeling compound; which is really nice to work with...
Start off with a ball that is about 1" in diameter and break off pieces as seen below.
These will form our dog's various pieces.
Mold them into a cylinder shape. One larger and 8 smaller pieces about the size of a Tic-Tac.
I've used craft wire to stick the pieces together. I let it dry over night and then reinforced the wire with some Glossy Accents by Ranger.
Paint as desired and add some glaze for a nice shine.
Voila! There you have it. Long after the balloon is gone, you can have this little guy as a reminder or bring a smile to someone on a dreary day.
Hope you've enjoyed this tutorial. Please be sure and check out the Creative Paperclay site. Thanks so much for stopping by today. Hope you have a wonderful rest of your week!
