Kinda hard to write in an italian accent, not gonna lie.

Alright, so this is my first real crack at clay and painting for the most part, but I was inspired by this awesomeness (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=145468.msg1432208#msg1432208) and I decided I had to try it for my best friend's birthday. I freakin' love making these! I wish the colors were more true to life, they're actually brighter and less, well, ugly. Just trust me on this one. Smiley

closeup of the nintendo controller, yay
I love this one... don't want to part with it!

I am SOO making more. The tutorial is included on the original thread and it's easy and FUN. Smiley

And since huge amounts of Mario Kart Double Dash is played at her house, I also made some Mario-themed coasters to go with these forks... you know, in case the forks have a drink or two, we don't want those pesky rings on the coffee table!

Da group of coaster gangstas... hardcore,yo
Sunshine closeup.. it has glitter and a pearly paint mixed with acrylics, just crappy photography (user error, ahem)
CHAIN CHOMP!! This guy is my favorite!! The shadows in this pic make him look a lil wonky, but I promise he is nice and round (and a tad bit glittery, just to take the edge off. He's really not that mean, just misunderstood.). Smiley

Oh, and I put some felt on the backs for nice table-friendly coaster action!

Now I get you clay people.... this stuff is awesome!!

i think poly clay is washable but dont put it in the dishwasher or let it sit soaking in water for a long time.

Wow! I'm totally gonna make that mushroom and nintendo controller one! Grin I love this idea. I'm totally looking forward to getting my own place now! Too bad it wont be dishwasher safe. Did you varnish it with anything or bake it and leave it?

I love em...great job I'm sure your friend is going to love em... Smiley

also as long as you seal them real well with a water proof sealer you can wash them and put them in the dish washer...

Diana B has info about that here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=145468.msg1434225#msg1434225

might have to try some myself...
