Basic supplies are foil for making the mushroom forms , polymer clay in desired colors, and some pointy sticks. We used toothpicks but a longer thicker stick would be better. Candy apple sticks would be perfect!
First, mold your foil into the mushroom shapes you prefer. Make sure to squeeze it nice and firm.
Next, you will take your clay and mold it until it's soft then press it around the form starting with the stems. Make sure to go up underneath the cap.
Take the top color and knead it until soft then press it over the top of your mushroom. Insert a round pointed skewer or toothpick into the bottom.
Bake at 275 for 30 minutes. Carefully remove from oven and let them cool.
Using water based antique glazing (I've even used watered down paint in a pinch) paint the mushrooms.
Quickly wipe off the extra glaze.
Use whatever planter you like!
We used an old ceramic wood planter we had lying around. Use whatever planter you like!
