Polymer Clay creations!

I was playing around with my Sculpey and I made some ickle pink Swans. (Cam batteries are dead, so I can't show you)... Then I took my little swan design and had a go at some earrings... My first pair!!!





And this one is turning into something of an addiction... I've made about 10 of these by now... each one is a little bit different in his colours and style (since I model each one individually... No cookie cutters involved!)




I'm pretty sure I haven't posted these here yet... but I made them about August last year as Christening gifts for my dads cousins little girls... I'm not big into religion or those crappy silver spoons that seemed to be all I could find in shops in the way of gifts... The little faeries are made in sculpey, baked onto the glass votives which were then painted with the names... Oh and some lovely packaging!







Don't know if I've posted these ones either...




Thats it for now!

I'd love to make more but they take sooooooooooooooo long... all those little tiny strips for the hair... Maybe if I start now I'll have some ready for the Christmas tree?

Everything is adorable. Are the fairies very durable? I've baked sculpy items onto other surfaces and, inevitably, they fall off as if they had never been connected to begin with. Any pointers on that one?

First I cleaned the glass, with washing up liquid and then wiped it with vinegar to make sure it was super clean... Then I took a little bit of clay and made sure that was really well stuck down. Then I built the little faerie around it... They are only meant for decoration, but I've had no trouble with them coming off so far!

Everything is so cute!!

I have a question... For the gingerbread men, did you bake the little hooks into the clay? As in, did you stick the hooks into the clay pre-bake and then bake them? If so, does this change the clay at all?

I'm really interested in making some of those as Christmas gifts.

Yes I baked the pins in... I've not noticed any change in my clay, but they are onyl between 1/4 and 1/2" thick, so only need backing about 20 mins anyways.

I have been advised to make the hole with a pin, then remove it and bake... then coat the pin in superglue and put it back in so that they hold really strong, but again, I've not had any complaints! I might do that on the next earrings I make, as the pin in one of them was a little wobbly...
