  1. Get four different colors of brown polymer clay, preferably dark brown, brown, light brown, and cream. These colors can vary depending on the type of look you're going for.

This is just what I was looking to find. My fianc is a lawyer and he wanted some thing decorative on his desk. Plants were out because of his past experiences with killing them. Statues were too cold looking. Then I saw this. I love working with clay. I can't wait to show him.
