Supplies and a contest!

First, I just want to make sure you have what you need to make the bunny and peeps. If you want your bunny to look vintage, you should buy a bottle of antique medium.....any kind will do. Mine is Folk Art and the bottle has lasted me for years! You should have a bottle of black paint for the face and if you want to put some sparkle on your peeps (for a sugar look), get a bottle of Glamour Dust at Michael's. I use Future Floor wax and then sprinkle on the dust. Just don't use clear finger nail polish because it eats polymer clay! I am going to tie a ribbon around the neck of my bunny. So look around your house for a piece of ribbon or you can usually get a spool of it at Michael's for 50 cents.
Here's a list:

1 bar Sculpey white or ivory
1 bar Sculpey yellow
black acrylic paint (Apple Barrel is cheap and will work fine)
Glamour Dust (use a 40% off coupon to buy this at Michael's)
Future Floor Wax or Sculpey matt glaze
2 toothpicks
a liner brush for the bunny face
An Oven!

I am going to have a drawing for my bunny that I make for the tutorial.......ok, and the chicks too! All you have to do is sign up as a follower of my blog (if you aren't already signed up) and send your name and address to I will put all of the names in a box and have my husband draw a name. I promise I will be honest. I am going to start on my tutorial tomorrow, so you can make your bunny and chicks this weekend! Think Spring!
