The Most Disgusting Thing I've Ever Baked

My Mad Scientist Halloween party is almost here, and what self-respecting madwoman would have a "laboratory" without something strange lurking about in a jar or two? To complete my cabinet of curiosities I learned how to make a "Thing in a Jar" with this tutorial. Once I had all the materials I needed, I got to work searching through online images for some monstrous inspiration. After drafting a sketch of my creepy alien baby I began kneading and shaping hunks of Sculpey clay. I baked my disgusting little creature in the oven at 275 degrees for 3 hours then set it out to cool.

Once cooled, I slathered it with acrylic paint and rubber cement. I can't wait to see this on display tomorrow!
