Step 5. Now it’s time for the fun part! Texture the surface of the rectangle to create grisly monster skin. Use a variety of tools to create a believable effect. You can also use nails, ball point pens, tips of brushes – anything goes!
Step 6. Add your eyepin by first cutting the excess amount and using jewelry pliers to carefully push it on top of the “book.” Tip: To create a pearlescent sheen, brush metallic pigment powder (or even pearly eyeshadow from an old make up palette) on your book, making sure not to disrupt the grisly monster skin effect. Use browns, silvers and blacks to create an aged surface effect. Bake your clay according to the directions on the package to set.
