Wise Men from the East
Wise men made from self-hardening clay. Decorated with Plus Color Craft Paint. Special effects are made with Crackle Lacquer.
How to do it
Make the body by rolling a piece of clay into a cone shape.
Seal the joint at the back and shape the head.
Shape a beard and a nose and attach. Use a small amount of water and remember to keep the clay moist with a damp cloth.
Shape the cape using the same procedure as the body and lay over the body adjusting it. Use a palette knife for cutting the edges neatly.
Make the head band from a long clay cylinder, shaping it decoratively in the front. Let the figure dry.
Paint the entire figure with Plus Color dark grey. Let it dry.
Apply Crackle Lacquer and let it dry (max. two hours).
Now paint with Plus Color off white and the paint will crackle immediately.
