I've been wanting to make some paper clay barnacles for awhile now and finally got around to it.  I used this site as a guide (http://www.designsponge.com/2012/07/diy-project-paper-clay-barnacles.htm).  I then made the "coral rock" the barnacles are attached to by using a half of a Styrofoam ball covered with hot glue My next step was to make more "succulent plants".  This time I used a lot of seed pods that I glued together in addition to the pine cones.  I am pretty pleased with how it all came together.

Pretty cool creation!  Seeing something like this on the beach would definitely make me stop in my tracks and step in for a closer look.  Barnacles really aren't something that you see in art very often either, so, I appreciate that you took that alternative approach for your newest succulent arrangement.  I haven't done it in a long time, but you really can make some fun shapes and textures covering an object with hot glue.

On my walks I keep seeing pinecones and think of your awesome creations. I am going to have to try to make one. You inspire me!
