Just thought I'd pass this along here, while looking for my mom's wedding, I saw this sale-

It's candles and whatnot off season, and cheap, up to 75% off!
BTW, my mother is having a beach themed wedding, has anyone ever used polymer clay to look like sand? I was thinking of making like a paperweight with a sand texture, hot glue a seashell to it, and a metal picture holder to the top, for the table numbers. (here is a visual sort of-http://myweddingaccessories.com/productcart/pc/catalog/5340_1119_general.jpg )

as far as the table numbers...  would it work to just press sand into the clay?  or make the clay the shape you want, put glue around it and then roll it in sand?

It seems to me, the easiest way would be to just make the shape and put the sand in it. I've never worked with clay before but I really like that centerpiece.

I was thinking that too, press sand into it, bake it, then if it doesn't stick, cover it in glaze with dand, or modge podge or something. thanks Smiley
