But then I found this amazing tutorial, where Lucy makes these gorgeous, realistic antlers out of a twig and some air-dry clay (which I am no stranger to, as also seen here). She also gave instructions for making them with tinfoil instead of a branch, which she claimed to be easier. And look at that end result above. Lovely. Now look at what I made.
Now, I don't want to call Lucy a liar, because she seems very nice, but I am also incapable of admitting that I am anything less than flaw-free, so sorry Luce, this one is falling on you. I don't know what I did wrong! I made the tinfoil frame! Then I put the clay on! THAT WAS ALL I WAS SUPPOSED TO DO TO END UP WITH CAREFULLY CRAFTED WHIMSY.
Instead I ended up with these weird, crackly, lobster claw looking things. Look at how weirdly thick they became, and how they are just falling apart, and how they look less like antlers and more like a sea creature's defense mechanism. Like, what in the actual fuck happened? Bad clay? The wrong kind of tinfoil? Feel free to throw in any other possibilities that absolve me of any wrongdoing.
Anyways, I have a few things coming up that are less shitty, but I had to show you how laughably bad this was.
