I picked up this set of fabulous steampunk owl stickers and I knew I wanted to use them in my project. I molded the largest owl in the pack using my Amazing Mold Putty and because I had extra space around the sticker, I added a few other little goodies in there while I was at it.

Once my mold was set, I used Creative Paperclay to make my owl. After my owl was completely dry, I painted all of his features and the gears with acrylic paint.

I laid a few pieces of cheesecloth on a 4 X 6 canvas and painted my background. Before the paint was set, I removed the cheesecloth, leaving behind some fabulous texture! That texture became the tree for my owl, as well as a second tree in the background.

I painted the moon and added a clock stamp to the center, then I glued my owl into place using clear tacky glue.

I love using Amazing Mold Putty and Creative Paperclay® together because you can remake anything you can mold. I hope you like this project and don’t forget to vote for me when you get to the Amazing Mold Putty Blog ;D

Enjoy the rest of the HOP!

I love this project–from the way you made the trees (which look so cool and realistic) to the clockwork owl and moon. Beautiful *and* evocative of an eerie autumn night!
