These are my first attempts at poly.  I saw the glow in the dark Fimo and had to get it. Grin

The dragon is my fav from the batch.  I forgot to put wings on him, but I've come up with a couple ideas to fix that.  I'll update when I'm finished with him.


This is Lanfear's sigil/symbol from Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series.
Alone-

On top of the image I modeled it after


I'm a D&D geek, so I made some dice.



The 4sider, ice cream cone and a flower.


I ended up glazing and painting the dice.  I gave most of the rest to my MIL to play with her beading and jewelry projects.

The dragon is mine lol

Thanks  Smiley   I was going to make a set for my brother, but the 8sider was pretty much a disater and I can't think of how to do anything higher and still have it be usable.  Sad  I'll keep trying tho

GlassAttic --polymer clay "encyclopedia"

Very cool.... gitd clay is so-o fun (and actually can do a lot of unexpected things).  

You might also want to try just "antiquing" next time you have some baked pieces with indentations that you want to color, instead of painting.  That way the indentations, lines and shapes will be nicely delineated both in the light and in the dark--as dark lines in a gitd background.  My son and I did that with some molded skull faces once (burnt umber acrylic)... after wiping the barely still-wet paint off the top surfaces, he could see the features great in the dark!
