The rose is gorgeous. It looks so delicate, like a proper flower, and what an ingenious use of the plastic!

I think they are great! You could try hanging them off ribbon instead of chain, to match with the fabric theme and nature motifs. I think a few strands of thin ribbon in colours to match the pendants would be cool Cheesy

Do those 'hair spirals' work well then? I have nightmare visions of never being able to get them out again...

I love the feather ones. The beechnut ones work surprisingly well, and the snail shell is cute! How fragile is the shell, though? I imagine it would break really easily...

thanks a lot for your nice compliments! (^__^) talyra i suggest you to use fimo classic wich is the brand i used for the lizard, Id try the same brazelet with fimo soft and it broke quickly  Tongue

It didn't break, I never wore it, because it just wasn't very good! It was an experiment really. I actually think it may have been partly Fimo Classic, or rather old-school Fimo before they rebranded it all... I've been using the stuff on and off since I was about ten, and the snake was made a few years ago, so I don't remember everything that went into it - I had a mix of new, old, and you-should-really-chuck-this-out at that point *grins*

Did you use an armature in your lizard?

I love the fantastic bright colours you've used! Specially in the last necklace, it's really summery. The lizard is just too cool, I think I want to try that now! I tried to make a snake bangle once, it was a bit thin really. Yours is nice and chunky and solid-looking.

What sweet pastel colours! Pretty design on the beads too. I have seen this cane elsewhere and wasn't sure I liked the effect, but yours is so cute!

well actually, when i said drying, i wasn't talking about the paint i used.  i let the poly set up and get hard before i bake it, it tends to just set the shape better and make them more durable in the long run. 

That's interesting. I knew that if you leave the clay out for long enough it goes hard, but I thought that took ages, and I didn't realise it made any difference once the piece is baked. Out of curiosity, what brand of clay are you using?

Keeping pieces of shrink plastic to doodle on is a genius idea. I might have to start tucking some into my pencil case for taking to lectures...

I like the green and pink spotty one, and the black and white geometric-y one.

The gold one to the right of the second picture is cute, it looks like wire work Cheesy I love the little square one in the last picture, and though I'm not so keen on the motif personally, the pearly white and gold glitter of the heart one makes a beautiful colour combination.

I take it that they are painted since you said they are drying, and I have yet to see metallic PC that looks THAT shiny, but I have to ask: do you extrude your coils or are they hand rolled?

That seahorse is adorable (though it helps that I love anything to do with seahorses!)

Your mermaid is lovely too, her haughty expression is so perfect, and the detail is wonderful. Is that actual abalone for her tail or abalone-effect PC?
