Introduction: Garden Monsters

These are critters I made for an art show "Lawn gnomes eat your heart out!" They stayed in my yard most of the summer before I started showing them in a few other galleries. I sculpted them out of a poly clay over a wire and foil skeletal structure.

ohhhh cute. I love them. How well do they hold up to elements being outside and all? I want to make a vegetable garden. Wonder if if I made motion sensor sounds to go with them if they'd scare away some critters stealing my veggies. :P

If they are made of clay, are terrifying and DANGEROUS.

Always one must think of children, they are ideal for get problems, hurts, etc.

Thanks everybody! :) The clay is oven is a conventional oven baked clay, I had never used it before and decided to give it a try! I painted them with a spray paint made for out door furniture and then used acrylic paints over the top of that.

Great looking. They appear to be large - were they fired in an oven or made weather-resistant in some other way? Painted?
