Hi everyone,
I know this is late, but I had made these for Likls in the Falling for Autumn swap.

Little squirrels!




They're made of Crayola Model Magic clay and colored with alcohol markers.


I also made some little pumpkins out of paper clay.



And they're painted with sparkly watercolor.


Thanks for looking!

Love the squirrels. Great job. I've never tried paper clay or the crayola brand. Which was the most user friendly?

Haha, I've never had fantastic luck with either of them... the crayola stuff is foam-like and hard to mold with detail as it kind of puffs back up a little when you squish it.  I am still not sure of paper clay brands or techniques, but for these, I used Cellu-clay, which I'm not sure is the best.  I think I personally like the model magic better because it's less messy, but it's easier to decorate paper clay!
