i am part of a harry potter crafts group on yahoo and last month was a challenge month. the challenge was to take your favorite quote and using any craft medium you want represent that quote in three items or less. so i decided to go with this quote by the gloriously odd Luna Lovegood:
"I don't think you should be an Auror, Harry," said Luna unexpectedly. Everybody looked at her. "The Aurors are part of the Rotfang Consiracy, I thought everyone knew that. They're working from within to bring down the Ministry of Magic using a combination of Dark magic and gum disease."
and i decided to make a purse charm that i could use on my backpack which is rapidly becoming a total harry potter hobo bag. pretty soon you wont even be able to see the back pack at all! its gonna be awesome.
to represent each part of the rotfag conspiricy and their plot i made some little dentures with gum disease, a set of fangs with a rhinestone set in one fang (i imagine this is how their insignia might have looked), and a dark mark with little rhinestones in the eye sockets too. all of these are made out of polymer clay. it was my first time working with it and it was soooooo fun. i can see this becoming another hobby. god. like i need another one. i also made the jeweled bits in the chain by using a wire wrapping technique and i connected it all to a hoop earring base with jump rings. the chain and jewel sections are also attached with jump rings. yay! i am happy with the way it came out. what do you all think. any polymer clay tips would be really appreciated too.

LOL! These are stupendous! Massively creative, and a total new spin on Harry Potter charms. I don't know about tips with polymer, just that if you get into the liquid clay BEWARE!!! That stuff gets REALLY sticky and messy lol. I just started playing around with it. It looks like your charms are well crafted though, so just keep up the good work. I love polymer because it's easy to experiment with Smiley Can't wait to see more charms, and I hope you keep posting the backpack as it transforms. I have a messenger bag that I painted all over and patched and did charms for, but it was a Nightmare Before Christmas theme. It's so much fun to claim bags as your own Smiley

Your charms are wonderful. I truly love the Dark Mark, so sweet! If such a thing can be said about moldy voldy and his mark! I love Luna Lovegood and her odd ways. Well done!

They're so cute!

I just got Polymer clay for 25 cents a package so I now have a *ton* and so much I can do with it!

The dark mark is amazing!

I actually did it way before I joined craftster, so it's not up here. I should try and dig it out, I haven't used it in awhile, and we moved so I'm sure it's in one of those tubs that never quite got finished unpacking lol. As soon as I find it I will try and get a pic to you! Smiley I absolutely love painting on bags. I use the "puffy" paints, I know they come in slick and glitter and half a dozen other things now. I just squeeze some out onto my palette and use brushes just like I was painting on canvas. You can get some really neat effects that way.
