Nightmare Before Christmas Trunk or Treat: Part 4

Have you ever wondered if you could speed up the air drying Clay’s drying time?  Well, wonder no more! 5 minutes in the microwave and done!  So, now all I need to do is glue hands and feet on and paint them!


I’m almost finished with my project.  I only have to complete the Mayor,  paint my tree, hill, make tombstones and paint the background.  I will definitely be finished by next weekend and once finished step by step tutorials for this build will quickly follow.

This project has taught to me to experiment and keep an open mind when it comes to materials. Don’t be afraid to use things you’d typically recycle or discard in your crafts.  If I had inmy Zero would not be finished nor would my Shock sculpture.
I’m currently waiting for my paper mache tree and hill to dry, but tomorrow I will post another update!

Happy Halloween and remember it’s all for the love of craft!
