Hi everyone!

Years ago I saw this elefant on the web and decided to make this one my first clay project ever.



I therefore used firnish. Unfortunately !
Weeks later I found a snowglobe and put it into it; not knowing that the firnish would decomposite.
I also didn´t use something for water preservation. Within years I could watch the strings of bacteria move around. Yummy!!!


Now I started all over.

I added a new ground plate, which looks like this:




I put the hot glue next to the ground plate - not on the snowglobe cover!

At last I filled in destillated water mixed up with a professional water preservation liquid by using a jab.
Mix the snow with a little portion of a cleaning product and finished!



Have fun!!!

Awww, they're so adorable!! I love that you put them in snowglobes Cheesy

I can't decide which elephant I love best ... but the one with it's eyes closed is probably slightly in front Smiley
