TIP 2: Make the base using cheaper materials. This would reduce the amount of clay used.
Step 2: STEP 2: STRENGTHENING THE BASE
Now use the clay for covering the bases and join them accordingly. The shape must look like these pics so that you could place its shell.
TIP 3:Make use of tools like toothpicks to smoothen the surface of your model.
Step 3: STEP 3: PLACEMENT OF THE PEBBLE
Place the pebble over the the base which you created earlier using foil and clay.
TIP 4: Use a craft knife or a ice cream stick to smoothen the areas thereby providing support to the pebble.
Step 4: STEP 4: PAINTING AND ASSEMBLY
After completing your model,paint it.
TIP 5: Use light colours for the body and use dark colours for painting the shell as it creates an effect on the viewers.
Remember to decorate it with some shells and stones.
