I made a cat spoon holder or stand out of clay. I made a small animals for small spoons, you can make larger animals like the swan below for cooking spoons. Water proof varnish keeps it resistant to moisture so you can use it in the kitchen or place one at each place sitting at a kid's party. I made the swan for my mom on mothers day

To make one you'll need:
1) Air-dry clay
2) A bowl of water
3) A toothpick
4) Water-proof varnish ( most varnish is water proof)
5) Acrylic paint with various

Step 1: Prepare the clay

Take chunk of clay about the size of your palm. Squish it down to a flat shape and add dabs of water, just a bit at a time. You are going to want the clay really soft and malleable .

Divide this clay into three parts, one should be for the body of the cat, one should be for the legs and tail, and a tiny bit for the collar and ears.

can we use oil paints?

U can use oil paints if u want but acrylic is best. And if ur using oil then don't use varnish or it might run. And if you really want you can use plaster of Paris if u get the consistency rigth and seal it well with a good sealer. Send me a pic if u do

Actually it would be cute for chopsticks cuz the hole for it would be thinner so you have a wider range of animals , maybe a panda holding them ?
