Hi!

My first work actually was a three-faced elephant I discovered on the internet, which I put into a snowball ... to look at it from all three sides!
I used a finished snowball by @eberhard-faber here.

For the bottom I made a round plate of green fimo that fitted in very well, but spared out the opening of the water vulve to fill in the water in the end and finally placed little stones and gras on it. Then I fixed everything with an extra strong glue ... even the snowballs globe.
At last I filled in destilated water ... Id rather mix it up with a "keep the water clean substance" now ( I unfortunately didnt ... not so nice after a little while) ... so dont save money here! I also used extra snowball snow and a lot of glitter!!!

Hope I gave you some inspiration!

Haha, That's awesome. It's things like this that make me wish I knew how to use the polymer clay. =[ Atleast there's sewing and drawing.

Adorable!  Love all the little things on the bottom too.

Don't quite understand this though:

For the bottom I used a green plate, but spared out the opening of the vulve.

Are you saying that you used a real plate that just happened to fit in the bottom, and that you avoided the valve, and ? Did you use a kit?

HI!

Thanks for your positive comments!  Cheesy

Actually it's a about 1 1/2 inch high (about 7 to 8 centimeters).
It wasn't designed to be fixed inside a snowglobe, so it's a little to big and even appears
much bigger because of the curved surface.
