TURNING PAPER CRANE INTO CERAMIC SCULPTURE
"Small Paper Crane on Driftwood"
It's now complete! I finished applying three coats of finishing paint and two coats of sealer. I also sprayed the driftwood with 3 coats of clear varnish to seal it as well. A small wire was inserted and sculpted into the crane and a small holed drilled into the wood for mounting.

Turning Paper Crane Into Ceramic Sculpture
Here is another idea I have for a ceramic sculpture. A crane mounted on a piece of rock that a friend gave me.
This is an aluminum foil covered paper to prevent the water-based clay from soaking the paper into mush.
I applied plaster paste to the aluminum foil to help the clay adhere to it. Still have a bit to go.
After adding a little sKratch paper clay. I'm hoping this will work so I can make a much bigger one.
