This is a picture of the first buddy I made. It took my five hours and I wasn't very pleased with it because the face was wizened rather than child like, and then after all that, I burned it in the oven. Mind you, I wasn't too distressed because it made the decision for me, I was definately not going to share something which was so burned that the clay was black and melted. I wrote to the group and got some ideas on how to stop it from happening again (i.e. the burning, not the wizening).
