These chubby Christmas figures have a body made from a glass bulb, covered with Vivi Gade decoupage paper. The heads are modelled from Silk Clay and pressed firmly onto the body with pipe cleaners for hair, arms, antlers, etc.

Guide step 1
1.
Apply a coat of VTR glue to the glass bulb and attach decoupage paper - small pieces at a time – onto the wet glue. When the glass bulb is covered with the small pieces of decoupage paper, apply another coat of VTR glue on top.
