I wasn't happy with my Rhinoceros Beetle ~ the shape was alright but I didn't like the color and the texturing I did on the face was all wrong. So back to Michaels for TWO packs of polymer clay this time, black for the head and pearl green for the body. My gut told me to "go big or go home". And since I have been accused of thinking with my various "organs" rather than my brain, I decided to go for it. The resulting beast is 3 1/2 inches long.
I keep a can of Raid nearby in case he gets unruly or tries to escape!
