My latest Sculpey head fell over while firing, which, because of the quite large antlers, resulted in some serious burnification, a fact I noticed right as the house was filling with billows of carcinogenic smoke.
Head was a total loss. On the bright side, I got it all cleaned up without anything catching fire, and learned a valuable lesson about the proper way of propping stuff up for firing.
Darn, I liked him, too. He had character. Still, when I redo him, I'll probably give him antelope horns instead of deer antlers, which'll look better. And into every life, after all, a little rain must fall...
And now, I must go forth and get more Sculpey with which to recreate him!
