I've not played with scupley clay in years...But I found a pack of it on sale at my local craft store and had to buy it.

I wanted to make a fairy, but what I ended up with turned out to look more like an elf to me. So a mushroom stealing elf he became.

His head is separate from his arms and the mushroom. I glued in skewers so I could position them how I wanted. I painted him and coated in a potent layer of outdoor sealer to battle the elements. His head stands 4.5 inches from the base of his neck (soil level) and the highest point of his hat. Comments, criticism are welcome Smiley
