don't be afraid to keep trying :) it takes a lot of trying and failing. the hardest part is getting that first basic shape right-- getting it the right size, and getting the curvy shape of the fingertips right. knowing what length to cut the fingers is really hard too... my suggestions-- start HUGE so you can just keep cutting and whittling away at the clay until you get the proportions right. leave yourself room for error. make it big so you can cut the fingers extra long and then cut them down to the right size as you begin to shape them.

haha nice hands! :D

I could totally make them like scary hands and keep em white and freaky and stuff and then make a halloween charm with that and like a foot! (feet scare one of my friends XD)

haha! that'd be pretty great. then you'd need to make some red tls and smear it all over and make like veins and bone and flesh sticking out of the end. XD
