Aside from my crazy cat banana this kangaroo planter is one of my most favourite things I've made in clay to-date!
I kept his base gloss free but drew on the design with red gloss paint. If you don't recognise the plant it's - kangaroo paws! I thought it would also be cute to paint his paws red as well :)
I drew some minimal eyes on with a special clay pencil (a normal pencil's colour would just burn off during the hot firing temps).
And a shot of him after his first bisque firing and before he's been painted where I make sure to do a lot of sanding and smoothing!
Finally, I've been growing this little succulent from a discarded leaf, so I was happy to finally of found a home for him!
I'm planning to make another kangaroo in a similar vein but without a planter this time but a baby joey!
