This was inspired by one of my favorite pokemon, the adorable Litwick! Please excuse all the cat hair that somehow made its way onto poor Litwick (if you're a cat owner, I'm sure you know how that happens =P).
The body is made from polymer clay wrapped around a glass tea candle holder (make sure it's glass, not plastic, otherwise it will melt when you bake the clay!).
I painted the "flame" part of a battery operated tea light a sheer purple color, which allows just enough light to show through when the candle is on.
