I saw shadowbox's cute, cute, cute zombie charms and was inspired to create a set of zombie stitch markers. Thank you shadowbox for putting creepy ideas in my head!  Grin

Each is sculpted in polymer clay, then painted/antiqued with acrylic paint. I then coat each with polycrylic glaze to protect them.

OMG I have no idea what a stitch marker is but I totally want some of these!  I would love these as charms to go on necklaces or a zombie charm bracelet!  Great job!  I think this is the first thing I have seen done with polymer clay that inspires me to try something similar!

Knitters use them to mark areas they need to rememeber. I've never use them so I'm not really sure how they work but I do know knitters, crocheters and the like love these things.  Smiley

HI! :] My name's Pamela, and I am all for peace. I am a 20 year old Art/Teaching Major in San Francisco. I am in love with life, and it inspires me. I'm hoping to get my very own studio soon - one I can call my home, make as messy as I want, and hopefully teach some little classes in! Carpe Diem*

I will say that I am happy to have inspired such work.  You shame me in my zombie skills, all hail you.

I LOVE THEM!

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments.

Shadowbox, you are too kind, thank you.

Scheletricoartista, funny you should mention that as I am making footsie earrings and pendents.

My son came over yesterday and he now wants a zombie head necklace strung on leather cord. Guess what I'll be making this week .... lol
