This Kagamine Rin Vocaloid chibi is all ready to sing her way to your loving home. She even comes with her signature fruit, an orange!
I painted her bow so it would be stronger and cleaner looking, baked the charm, waited a full day, then glazed it...and the bow's paint cracked again. D; I ended up glazing her bow around 4 times to make it extra strong and to make sure the paint wouldn't chip off, so it should be fine though. :3 The cracks kind of add texture? Ha ha!

Go ahead! It is simpler than adding feet/legs especially if you are a real stickler for getting everything symetrical and your legs/arms always end up getting messed up. That always happens to me at least, ha ha! It also lets you put more details on outfits/hair and not have to worry about legs/arms breaking off in the mail. ^ u ^
I would suggest making the basics of what ever you're making first and if your clay is too soft, then put it in the fridge for a few minutes. While it's getting firmer, you could start on the things that you need to attach and are falling off. Next, take your model out of the fridge and attach the pieces you just made. I've found that craft glue and/or using cut eye pin bottoms help attach the clay together. (: Hope that helps!
I actually painted it before baking...maybe that's why it cracked... "orz It's strange that the white paint would crack, but the black paint is totally fine even if I glaze it immediately after baking. I wonder if I somehow got water in my white paint? Anyway, I love answering questions! It's no problem at all. You can paint on the faces/what ever you want on after you bake, or before. I like doing it before because I make indentations in the clay exactly where I want to paint the eyes on. That makes it easier for me than painting it when the clay is hard. When the clay is soft you can smooth over the tiny indentation you made if you decide that's not where you want the eyes to go. I've heard that people that paint when the clay is hard can sand off their mistakes or wash it off. Personally washing the paint off for me was a disaster. xD It all depends on the person and what works best for them though. I think most clay reators that you find paint the faces on after baking. C:
