You give me so much hope, lol. Your costume is absolutely amazing, and you make a gorgeous faun! I'm currently trying to make a faun costume for a Renaissance festival here in Texas, and my biggest issue has been finding an inexpensive way to make hooves.

I've worked with Sculpey a lot, but never in a way where it would take the stress from being walked on. I'm excited to see that you used it, and have to ask, how did it hold up? Did they last the day or were they cracking, and were they overly heavy?

Also, did the horns stay attached all day with just the Spirit Gum, or did it sweat off at all? I haven't made my horns yet simply because I didn't know how I wanted to attach them to my self, but it would be so much easier to just do it your way, and it looks so much better!

ha ha ha Thank you!!
I found that the Sculpey held up ok, just be careful... and don't overbake it either cause that makes it brittle. You could check out your local art supply store, I think making resin hooves would work MUCH better... The horns stayed fine all day, although I would recommend to make the base shape of the horns with tinfoil first, and then covering them in sculpey to avoid the excess weight. Also, make sure your skin is clean before applying.

Good luck! Let me know if you have any other questions

Awesomeness, thank you for the help! Went to go get the Sculpey the other day, and found this stuff called Cloud Clay. If you've never used it, holy cow you should try it! It had it's up and down sides, but it worked so well for what I wanted, and it's soooo light! I haven't painted any of it yet, just the primer, but this is what I have so far [link] . I want to make resin hooves one day, but I'm so strapped for cash and time this go around that it will have to come later. I'll let you know how this stuff works out!
