I did this for the Mad Science Swap. The clay is a natural organic homemade mixture. I don't use PVC or CPVC's when I can avoid it because of health concerns. The paints and other mediums are regular store bought products but I plan to eventually mix my own pigments. The base is a heavy bolt.

That is so realistic. And I'm very impressed that you can make your own clay. What recipe do you use? Is it like cold porcelain but without the pva glue?

I haven't wrote down a recipe yet because I'm getting a feel for how the ingredients work. Crumbling is a concern because I don't use a highly rubberized binder. My first one is over a year old and has held up. The thicker pieces aren't working. I'm still relying on a ton of sealant.
