So I had a piece of mirror that was just laying around.  So I decided to sculpt some sculpey around the edge.  I decided to go for an Alice in Wonderland theme,and came up with the caterpillar smoking the hookah.


Sorry for the picture quality I took it on my phone.

Technically right now it could be complete.  But I wanted to somewhow include his famous phrase of "Who are you?" into/onto it.  I had originally thought along the existing smoke rim along the top, but then started thinking about maybe frosting it onto the mirror surface.  And then I became apathetic.

So I am looking to you guys for suggestions/encouragement.  Materials don't matter, so suggest whatever you want.

And yes I know that he kind of resembles the "Me Gusta" meme... lol

I like the idea of frosting it, maybe with a few smoke rings too?

I also like the idea of etching it!  What if you started it in paint along the top edge "Who are" and then frosted the "you" with smoke rings after it?

If you're not feeling up to etching it, why not get some glass enamel and just paint on the surface? You could still get a pretty cool smoky look out of it. (Though I think the etching would be at least twice as cool)
