So, I decided to try my hand at sculpting, but wasn't ready to do a full head or anything like that. Instead, I decided to do wine bottle stoppers! This is my wine witch. I have a couple of Santa's that I wouldn't dare show on this site! :D
I am now in the process of making a black cat one as well, which is proving to be a bit of a challenge for me!

Sorry for such a late response. Yes, it was created with Sculpey. I bought the stopper blank online. It's a stainless steel stopper that has a post on it so you can form your sculpture around it. I used foil as the armature. It saves materials and makes for a lighter stopper.
After baking the clay and painting it with acrylic paints, I put a varnish over it so it wouldn't stain or the paint wouldn't rub off, then glued it to the stopper blank. It doesn't budge.
I haven't had any problems with them breaking off of the stopper itself. That was why I bought the stopper blank with the post though. I figured it would be more secure.
Thanks for the comments!
