Fun fact: THIS ROCKS.  Wink

The whole thing is so many forms of rock-my-socks-fantastic, and I really love the toucan doodles surrounding the base on the vintage paper. The sculpture itself is amazing, and I love how expressive your new friend is. In other words, beautiful job!

He's adorable! You did such a great job on his painted details; it's almost as if he's alive. And I love the sassy hat. Smiley

He is amazing! How did you keep the air dry clay from cracking over the hard armature?

I have no idea! It just didn't crack Smiley The layer of clay, at its thinnest, was probably 1/4" thick, so that might have something to do with it. This is the kind of clay I used: http://www.amazon.com/Activa-Premier-Lightweight-Stone-28-Ounce/dp/B002VR0C26/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1338944279&sr=8-1
