GewGaws and other thingamajigs

I got to be Gruesome Twosome at the Haunted Design House, and I get to play along with those amazingly talented ladies as a GDT in June; 
As you already know, the theme is 
GewGaws / Junebugs

 I got my modellingpaste out, and got to making me some decorative kritters! :D 
 I shaped them in portions and left to dry before I assembled them.
 My little green fella' is about 8cm long. He's painted with black gesso, before I gave him several layers of nailpolish... (yes! nailpolish!) There is a neon yellow bazse, woth two layers metallic green, and then camoflage green detailing. The white parts are gelpen :)
My spider got the same treatment, with two layers midnight black, and then metallic red on the body. 

I hope you enjoy my bugs! I sure do, they are part of my table-decoration now, in a midst of flowers
(I sure hope no-one wants to sqaut them!)

You actually made these out of modeling paste? I thought they were rubber bugs you altered with paint. Brilliant work, Laila!!!
Thank you for being our guest in the dungeon this month.
And don't forget, even though Mark likes to sashay around the dungeon dressed in flowing gowns, doesn't make him any less a man.

Wow, these are amazing! I've seen the decorated plastic bugs before but these are way cooler! You've done a fabulous job in making them so realistic, yet so pretty with their shine. Thanks for sharing with us over at LOC challenges this week.
