NOTE: I partially bake the pieces for about 10 minutes during various stages of assembly. Before baking the pieces, make sure it fits in your hitch. I didn't do this and ended up trimming small piece of the back of the head and shifting the ears.
Polymer Clay - I used Fimo Clay purchased from Hobby Lobby, Joanne's, or MIchaels (depending on sales)
Steel tube cover- purchased from Amazon. I made the mistake of using the cheaper plastic thinking the low oven temperature would be ok but it warped.
Pasta machine or rollers - for flattening the clay.
Varathane Polyurethane High Gloss Varnish - I bought this from Amazon. This could probably be omitted if you use Environmental Technology 32-Ounce Kit Lite Pour-On, High Gloss Finish.
Environmental Technology 32-Ounce Kit Lite Pour-On, High Gloss Finish - to waterproof and increase protection against the elements. One thick coat is supposed to equal about 50 coats of varnish. I purchased this from Michaels using their 40% off coupon.
