Make your own little Glow Ghost friend

Our Makin's clay designer showed us how to make this little guy at the last show.  Simply roll out 120 grams of Glow in the Dark Makin's® clay with a rolling pin or pasta maker to about 1/8" thickness.  Then drape over a form such as a standard light bulb (not lighted - you are only using the bulb as a form).  Add 3 small circles (or your own design) of black Makin's® clay while the clay is soft.  Let the ghost air cure overnight.  Remove from the form and light from below with one of our hobby lighting kits using only a 4 watt bulb.  In lower light environments you can use a battery powered LED votive candle.  Feel the 'eerie' in the soft glow!
