I have a set of blank metal ATC cards and thus far have had no idea what to do with them. When I decided to make an ATC using polymer clay, however, I discovered the metal cards are PERFECT as a base!

I molded the octopus directly onto the metal and added little metal gears, then baked the whole thing. The octopus popped off cleanly and I was able to paint the ATC base, add paint and detail to the octopus and then glue the whole thing together.

I love the result and will definitely be sculpting some more ATCs soon! This was created for Wulf in the Happy Mail Swap.

Beautifully done!  And I'm sure Wulf adores it.  It's so him!
