Fake Corn on the Cob

This corn on the cob is also for "The Crowd You're in With" at 16th Street theatre (opens July 14th by the way and will be worth the trip to Berwyn if you can make it).
I started with a 1" dowel rod, then wrapped it with Crayola Model Magic.
With the cap of a highlighter, I covered the still-soft clay with circular indentations to texture it. I found the the harder I pressed and more irregular I let the circles become, the better the effect was.

After the Model Magic dried , I painted the corn with two coats of transparent yellow paint to give the color some depth.  Finally I cut the corn cobs in half and roughed up the exposed wooden ends a bit.
Then placed them in a tupperware on the picnic table.
