I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

The magnificent rackycoo and I partnered for the IYP Swap and one of her requests was a kid with bunny ears. After an extensive research period, it seemed Creative Paperclay was the way to go, even though I hadn't touched the stuff yet. The clay was formed over a stryrofoam and chenille stem base, and it was gessoed, painted with acrylics, then varnished. He's enjoying his balloon, which is just a foam egg covered in tissue. Finally it came time to put him on something, and a vintage alphabet block seemed appropriate. (wait, it's not vintage. It was mine as a kid and I'm no where near vintage.  Wink)

rackycoo kindly allowed me to use her pictures:

You guys have no idea how excited I was to open up this little cutie! His face! His belly! His wittle feet! I just think he's the cutest. I rocked him, too.

Thanks, pottermouth! You are so talented!
