    Awesome !
    I discovered paper cache clay while constructing a giant nutcracker for Christmas and couldn’t bring myself to use a triangle of wood for his nose as I had seen many do.
    It took three attempts for me to make the nose acceptable ( to me ).
    I have already started collecting things needed to make a giant Frankenstein family for Halloween.
    I learn by looking at the work of others. Thank you for taking the time to share your creations. ¥
