Silk Clay insects as pencil head decorations
Make these small pencil head decorations by modelling a Silk Clay figure onto one end of a pencil. Here we have made a bumble bee and a ladybird.
How to do it
Model bodies and details from Silk Clay as shown in the photo to make a bumble bee and a ladybird. The wings for the bumble bee are made from two flat wooden hearts. A TIP: make only one figure at a time to prevent the Silk Clay from drying out.
Attach the body onto the flat end of the pencil.
Attach the details with a light pressure.
Attach the eyes and the wings by pushing them into the figure. Silk Clay sticks onto wood and papier-mâché when it is damp.
