Hedgehog Polymer clay ACEO by MandarinMoon Hedgehog Polymer clay ACEO by MandarinMoon
Okay...so this is my attempt at a hedgehog....don't quit my day job right?

Spikeyboy1969 asked me to make one for him....I'm almost too afraid to post it but I decided to show it to him anyway. The worst he can do is say...huh?...what's this?...you expect me to pay you for THAT?!

Heh heh :D

It is supposed to be a hedgie on his back and that little protrusion at the bottom is his tail...so get yer mind out of the gutter LOL!

He is made of polymer clay, toothpicks and acrylic paint.

Oh. My. God. Toothpicks? I tried making a tiny hedgehog out of just clay and it looks horrible. This one looks absolutely amazing. I have a pet hedgehog and if I could make one of these for my boyfriend, he would be soooo happy....

Give it a try! I used the tips of the toothpicks and used a dab of liquid polymer clay on the cut end of the pick before I stuck it in the clay. It holds them fast after it is cured.

I really like what you did with the toothpicks. I agree with some of the previous comments - you're way to hard on yourself in the description! I think it's adorable :)

Was just running through your gallery again, sometimes I like to go back and 'revisit' some admired deviant's galleries.
Reading the description on this I have to say -- you are WAY too hard on yourself! This is not only beautiful and realistic looking, but the technical detail is stunning too. Showed it to my partner as he loves hedgehogs too, and after reading him the description he said 'what?! it's perfect!' :D

I see you have many other comments on this already, so hopefully you're feeling more confident about this piece :)

Thank you very much! Yes, I was so worried that the man that I made it for would not like it but he loves it and I was so relieved. Thank you so much for your kind words. :hug:

I'm extremely quiet and easy to be ignored, so I hear a lot without being noticed. But I'm also an independent thinker, and will prickle up into a ball to protect myself.
