How to do it
Form a skeleton from bonsai wire. Make sure the figure can stand on its own.
Now form the slender figure from self-hardening clay around the wire and let it dry.
Paint the sculpture with opaque paint in bright colours. Leave to dry. (You may apply several layers so that the figure appears bright ...)
Draw eg. details with a covering field. Let dry.
Paint eyes with a foam stencil brush, brush handle or a wooden flower stick.
The extra thick 3 mm bonsai wire makes the figures quite stable, and the slender look can therefore be exaggerated.
Y2 and Y3 pupils can use the softer 2mm bonsai wire instead. But then the figures must be smaller so that the wire holds its shape.
