Clay Art Challenge Day 5

Into the 5th day of creating 30 small sculptures in 30 days. Today's snail starts out with an aluminum wire body covered with aluminum foil.

 Super Sculpey Firm clay being added to the body. The mouth also started.

 I like to bake the polymer clay shell first. Then I can test it to the unbaked clay snail. A hemostat comes in handy for holding small parts while adding texture to the clay.

 Glossing the eyes is getting to be my favorite step. It means I'm almost done!

Well here he is. My wife said something about the nose and teeth reminding her of a horse. So okay we'll call this one a horse snail.
