This is was my very first time using polymer clay. I sculpted 2 skulls out of white and black polymer clay, painted them with acrylic and sprayed with a satin finish.
After all the detailed painting and the sanding and re-sanding of the dowels, I spent about 4 hours on the needles. I've very proud of them.  It was difficult to package them and mail them to my swap partner. lol.  Hope you like.

I got the idea from Cat Morley. You can find her original post here: http://www.cutoutandkeep.net/projects/knitting_needles

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.
