I have a need for bright colors lately!
I have never worked with poly clay before and I sort of cheated by pushing it into a mold! I see a lot of people who can make awesome little things from clay, I'm not quite there yet!
After I baked my duck, I dipped him in resin for a serious shine!



I made this giant cupcake pendant at the same time! I used a few different glitters and of course sprinkles. I added some pink cookie sugar to turn it pink!



I'm dying to make more clay projects but I need to stock up on some more colors before I go nuts!

Comments, suggestions? Always appreciated!!

Thanks so much for the feedback! I love to know when I'm doing something right!

I stuck the eye screw in his head so I could hang him up over some plastic to catch the excess resin. I just sanded his bottom when he was all finished curing. Smiley

Hehe, I know he has totally been abused!

They're real sprinkles you would put on cakes and cupcakes and cookies! Sprinkles are pretty popular with the resin crowd!
