1. First, break the clay into 3 equal portions. Roll a portion into a round ball and shape into a toadstool cap using your thumb and fingers. Using the sharp end of a knife, scour toadstool gills into the underside of your toadstool cap.
2. With the toadstool cap in the palm of your hand, push the stick toadstool stalk into the middle of the underside of the toadstool cap to make a deep identification. Remove the stick and let it dry for 15 minutes.
3. Once they get dry, use the glue to secure the stick stalks in place. Now With a paintbrush, paint the toadstool caps. Do three coats of paint for each toadstool. Be careful when you paint the rim of the toadstool… you want the color to cover all the way around and yet not touch the gills.
4. To paint perfect white spots, use a ear bud and a toothpick. Paint three sizes of white spots… the ear bud size and for the other two smaller spots, use the point end of the toothpick and broke the point off one end for a slightly bigger dot too.
5. Dip the bud in white paint and use it to make a precise spot. Repeat with the toothpick and try to make your white spots seem random… the more random they are, the more natural your toadstools will become. Finally, now you have the most charming toadstools for your fairy garden.
