A little owl peeking out of a faux wood tree brooch

I made a small cane of an owl and one of wood- and made a brooch for autumn.
I also finally pulled out a peacock cane I started a while back, it’s about seven inches tall. I packed it with a layer of PlayDoh, because I was going to then wrap it in scrap clay, reduce the cane and be able to peel off the scrap and have a ‘background-less’ peacock. Here’s a tip: If you’re not going to slice your cane RIGHT AWAY (within a day), don’t pack it with PlayDoh! It will dry out fast and pull your cane in directions you don’t want. Take it from me- I’m chipping off the dried PlayDoh and not happy about my wasted effort and time.
