Polymer Clay Animals

I’m getting married in October and we’re having a harvest/farm/Halloween theme. I’m making my own cake and I wanted little animals and jack-o-lanterns on one of the tiers. I could’ve used marzipan but I wanted to be able to keep them around after the day was over, and I wanted them to be more sturdy, so I made them out of polymer clay.

I used Sculpey III, some clay tools from my intro ceramics class, (it’s always good to keep stuff around) and some interchangeable screwdriver tips.

There’s a rabbit too… I missed him somehow in the pictures. They were really fun to make and they turned out really well. I just need to varnish them up with some gloss acrylic medium and they’ll be ready to go.
