The jack-o-lanterns above were so fun to work on. They are sculpted from paper clay (my clay of choice. I'd rather wait for something to dry then wait for something to bake and cool. I know this makes me a little nutty.) and painted with acrylic and gouache. They also light up! I electrified them all to glow with candlelight, it's sooo cool!
this tutorial (though I'm never one for tutorials, I just like to see the inspiration. Step by step? Booooring! Trial and error? Yay!)
