Step 5

Once the frame is completely covered, smooth the clay using water and your fingers. Try to smooth out any cracks and creases. Make sure there is a flat surface at the back of the antler around the middle to make it easier to hang later.

Step 6

Leave to dry and harden for at least 48 hours. When the clay has gone from light grey to white all over, it's ready. Sand out any imperfections with fine grit sand paper.
