My hands have been working in a bit of clay this past week. Amid my festive fa-la-la-ing, it's been a tradition since I was a child to make a new ornament to adorn the tree each December. So I decided that our tree was severely lacking a Vulpes vulpes presence. But no longer!
Say hello to Thaddeus Fox.
He was crafted in the following way:
- Handsculpted in polymer clay,
- Baked in an oven,
- Lovingly painted by hand.
The final touch was the thin piece of rope to hang him by.
He definitely has made the tree extra spiffy.
