Way cooler than the commercial plastic ring markers I use!   Grin
Great job.

I'm always impressed by people who can actually do something with polymer clay. I'm horrible with it!

They look terrific!

Those look really really nice!

Just a hint - iit may be a good idea to switch over to a stronger clay - Fimo or Premo or KatoClay - because Sculpey III has a tendency to be brittle and break.  These just look so, so lovely, it would be a shame for them to not last a long, long time.  Smiley

Most people dislike the Sculpey glaze, because it's sooo thick, and has a tendency to peel off - but if you put it back in the oven at 200 for about ten minutes, it helps to "set" it and alleviate that problem.  (I don't know this from experience - I use Rustoleum Varathane to finish my clay, but I've heard this from other clay artists - the few who put up with the difficulty of using the Sculpey glaze.)

ooo, dancinjules, thank you!  i didn't know the clay wasn't very strong and some of my pieces have thin little projections n' stuff that could crack off.  and i'll have to try that 're-heating after glazing' trick...

and thanks everyone else too!  glad you like them   Smiley
