The Tin Man is my latest Makin’s Clay® project. He stands 8 1/2″ tall not including the base which I textured with a hot knife. I used my Makin’s Professional® Ultimate Clay Machine® to roll out sheets of clay which I then textured with a Makin’s® Texture Sheet. The substrate is cardboard and foil. I also use the Makin’s Professional® Ultimate Clay Extruder® for the ax handle. I make a special mixture of clay thinned out with bottled water to form a “slip” to help in the bonding process.
