And they're going to be SO hard to give away...
Honestly. I have to stop getting so attached to my creatures.
I ended up ditching the wire in the antennae which I was talking about here.
It just kept poking out in all the wrong places - so I was really unhappy with it.
So I used some glue instead.
How exactly? Well, I just wet my fingers... Put a dot of PVA glue on my fingertip... Then worked it into the stem of the antennae... Positioned it the way I wanted, then left it to dry overnight...
Oh and I added some texta. The spiral shape of the shell wasn't as pronounced as I wanted it to be, so I used a medium tip black Sharpie pen to draw it in a bit. Just go lightly if you're trying this. You can always go darker if you need to.
Just a reminder that the pattern is HERE if you are interested.
