I still had some glow-in-the-dark clay left from my mini moo project and I decided that might make a pretty cool vampire. To keep him from being too scary (I tend to like funny more than scary) I decided on a young, barefoot vampire. Here's the beginning of the coaster with most of his parts in place.
After I had his parts attached, I went to work on his face. The last step was to stamp "Got Blood" on his top side before putting him in the oven. Two coats of waterproof glaze and a soft foam pad on his belly and he was ready to be photographed.
The final test was to see if he really did glow in the dark. I took him to my shipping closet (very dark inside with a good shelf for photographing things) and put a bright flashlight on him for a minute or so. I then set the camera for a night shot and a shutter opening time of 10 seconds. I think he turned out pretty good!
