Your barrette is beautiful! I love it. You have a great eye for design.

But I mostly posted to say, "OMG, I think we read the same 'how to make a bread clay rose' article years and years ago." Did you read it in some craft magazine when you were young, too? I used to make those obsessively when I was a kid!

Thank you so much! My grandmother had all kinds of magazines stacked high in her attic, I used to sit for hours combing for Craft projects, so it's very possible, it's one of those things I have always known and done, know what I mean?

This barette is sooo wisted!  Wink

I have a few questions though:
1) How did you assemble it? Did you bake it all seperately and glue them together ..or?
2) Did you glaze it with anything?
3) Where did you get your barrette to put it on?

Sorry for all the questions but I want to attempt something similar to this.  Kiss

That's gorgeous! Can you show the back, or tell me what you do to hold it in your hair?

First Thank you, For the barrette part I re-purposed an old barrette I never used. I baked the skull and roses with the  barrette but it did not stay together, ultimately I ended up gluing on the barrette.

In the future I plan on using barrette blanks that they sell in craft stores and even though the barrette blank will not stay attached I will bake my polymer clay pieces on top of them in order to achieve and maintain the curve, That way when I do Glue the two together I will get the best surface to adhere to.

I did not seal this piece, I currently only have a gloss varnish in my stash and want to maintain the matte finish. When I come across a matte finish I like I will most likely seal it
