13 Days of Halloween - Day 9 - Polymer Clay Dancing Ghost

Happy Halloween!!! :o)

Today I'm bringing DAY 9 of the 13 Days of Halloween series with this Polymer Clay Dancing Ghost sculpture. :o)

To make this tiny ghost I went with same design as on two ghosts that I shared couple days ago as one of my project from my 13 Days of Halloween series (here).

How I made my sculpture...

When I work with a polymer clay, I work on the glass surface plate I have. I find the glass to be best surface to work with the polymer clay. It's also very important to have clean hands, as the polymer clay picks absolutely everything from your hands or working surface.

I softened a night glow polymer clay with my hands. Polymer clay has to be softened, as it's not possible to work with hardened polymer clay. 

Using my hands and a glass working surface, I shaped the ghost. Using various modeling tools, I shaped holes for eyes and inserted a tiny black glass bead for each eye. Using a toothpick, I made a hole through the ghosts. Then I worked on wrinkles, shaping them with my hands.

When I was satisfied with the shape of the ghost, I baked it for 30 minutes in an oven following producer's instructions.

After baking, I put the ghost to cool on air. After cooling, I sanded it using a fine grit sanding paper .

Then I made a tiny polymer clay sphere, made a hole through it and baked it. This tiny part was for "closing" the bottom part of the ghost and to tie a nylon thread through it. After cooling, I tied the nylon thread around the sphere with a hole, thread it through the ghost and my tiny ghost was finished. :o)

I really like how this one turned out. And it glows in the dark. :o)
