Harold, the Refrigerator Magnet

This is Harold, my refrigerator magnet guy.  He is made from white Makin’s Clay®.  I sculpted him, shoved a bunch of feathers in the top of his head, and let the clay dry.  Then, I antiqued him with burnt umber oil paint, painting the paint on and then rubbing it off leaving it in the cracks so he would have more detail.  I’m not normally a sculptor but I had seen a similar guy made with ceramic clay and wanted one for my fridge so I made Harold.  He makes me smile when I look at him.
