Create a magical forest with easy-to-grow plants nestled in a metal tray. Shape mini mushrooms from clay and wire, poke them into the moss-covered soil, and add a cute clay fox and paper butterflies to the scene.
Tear off three pea-size balls of clay; shape two into triangular-shape ears and one into an oval nose. Pull off a piece of clay and roll a 3/4" wide, 1" long tube; taper one end slightly and flatten ends for the body. Pull off a piece of clay and roll a narrow, slightly tapered, 1" tube for tail.
Press wide end of tail onto side of body. Shape end of tail by tapering it to a point and sculpting it so tail curls upward. Blend base of tail into body with fingertips.
Press ears onto top of head and sculpt into points. Blend base of ears into head. Press nose onto face and shape into point; blend into face.
Bake fox according to clay manufacturer's specifications. Let cool.
Paint fox rust, leaving chest, cheeks, tip of tail, and tips of ears unpainted. Paint unpainted areas white. Let dry. Using a small artist's brush, paint lines for eyes and tip of nose black. Let dry.
Brush high-gloss decoupage medium onto fox. Let dry.
