Paper clay is one of my top 5 favorite things to craft with -- it creates beautiful results, handles paint well, and is very forgiving.
Here's a little guy that I made for a Craftster swap a year or so ago. I am thinking of doing some Christmas versions this year. He'd make a cute ornament! I winged the design from my head. I think he's about four or five inches tall.
After sculpting the paper clay and letting him dry over night, I painted him with acrylics and sealed him with matte medium.
Again, I like his little nose. And I wish I had a photo of his bum -- that was pretty cute too.
