These are beautiful! Where did you get the images from? Are they decoupaged onto the clay? Very pretty!! Good job!

Oh jeez, please fear not. These are BEAUTIFUL!

I can imagine how cute they would look with some jeans and a simple t-shirt. Very classy!

Thanks for the kind words, everyone!   Grin  You just made my day (and it's been a loooonnnnggg day, too).

For the record, the images are simply decoupaged onto the clay, nothing fancy.  I had some trouble finding a varnish that worked, though, and I'm still not quite happy...I ended up using wet 'n' wild nail polish.  Shiny, at least!

you could try acrylic sealer spray. they sell it at most craft stores and it comes in a can that looks like spray paint.

anyway, it's not too expensive and it gives it a nice smooth shiny finish. i make a lot of decoupage tile pendants this way, by decoupaging it first, letting it dry and spraying two coats of acrylic sealer on (letting it dry in between, of course!), and it turns out fantastic!

very hard to screw up unless you spray too much on and it drips.
but it's inexpensive and works great!

I use the Fimo varnish. It's called "Eberhard Fabor Gloss Varnish". Works well! Nice and thick protective layer.
