It was looking a bit dull as Play-Doh wasn’t meant to last long. Coating it with PVA glue helped preserve it a bit, but it still shrunk a little, there were cracks and the twigs sticking out the back part fell off. Looks better without them anyway.

I started out by adding a fresh coat of PVA then sprayed with a primer then went on with the painting using acrylics. Adding a lighter tone first then building up painting with a darker wash to get some nice gritty woodsy effect, then finally some greens here and there for moss.
