This one is paper mache clay over a frame of cardboard and alum. foil. The eyes of the babies are ball bearings painted black. Tried something different for the base. It’s Plaster of Paris poured into a form made from a plastic flour pot with a little joint compound added to give it color and a handful of sand sprinkled on top to give it texture. I pressed the feet down into it while wet and then used Elmer’s glue once dry to adhere the possum to the base. You really have to work FAST – it set up in just a few minutes.
