Now that my partner has received in the Vintage Halloween swap I can share here too. This is my little plague doctor. I used Creative Paperclay, paint, and varnish. This was my first time using Creative Paperclay and I really liked it.

And the other side:

He is about 7 inches tall and 3.5 inches wide at the base. I had a lot of fun making him and plan on making more. Smiley

It's a plague doctor penguin! Cheesy Isn't Paperclay great to work with? A bit sticky when you're sculpting it (though not as much as any homemade papier mache I've ever tried) but the finished quality is so lovely.

This looks great: the shape, the painting...all of it.
It makes me want to try paper clay.
