The past two weeks have been busy with a tea party project (I'll be posting that soon), a side project (which will be posted before that), and some wardrobe sewing for a few American Girl dolls (which I won't post because the dolls' hair is in a constant untamable "wind-tunnel" state). Anyone have any tips on smoothing out the 'dos?
Anyway, I thought I'd share a tutorial on making your own polymer clay mandrake ornament for all those Harry Potter fans out there. It is a relatively quick project so let's get started!
Polymer clay, mini terra cotta pot, tacky glue, 22 gauge
brown cloth stem wire, railroad landscape material in brown, antiquing
fluid or brown acrylic paint, toothpick, stylus, or any other sculpting
tools, plastic leaves, small styrofoam ball, wool roving or twine
(optional), and earmuffs.
