These mushroom caps are sculpted by me without the use of any commercial molds or forms, and the pins are cured right into the clay during the baking process. They are then hand-painted with several 'washes' to get the realistic layers of color, and the spots are applied with the teeniest tiniest of brushes. The last photo shows a group of mushroom caps that are drying after being painted.
These are made with new corsage pins and are 2 inches long.
****Please note****: These are made to order and may take up to ten days to be created, packed and ready for shipping. While the ones you receive will look very similar to the ones pictured here, they won't be an exact copy; they are each hand-sculpted and painted one at a time :)
Notes on terrarium use: I tested my mushrooms in my own planters, and regular daily watering didn't affect them at all. After two weeks, the painted details were intact and the pins themselves showed no signs of rust, so no worries!
