I made these for my sister (whose nick name is goose) and for one of my closest friends (we are friends for life like flamingos!!)!!

I've never used polymer clay before and haven't glazed/varnished them yet, because i wouldn't know what to use!!

I hope you like them!

Apologies for the PhotoBooth pics!!

Cute!  And cool idea for the photo booth  Grin --think that's the first time I've seen that method for photographing small polymer items!

What will they use them for?  I can see fairly thick shanks sticking up, I think... will they perhaps be made into hooks or loops, then hung as xmas ornaments?

As for which finish to use, there are various possibiites depending on the effect you want and how much "hardness" and lack of later susceptibility to scratching and cloudiness from humidity you want.  (Or of course, you don't need to seal them at all since this is polymer clay, not an air-dry clay).  
Check out this message for lots of info on finish possibilities for polymer clay to get lots more details:

Then this one was written later and has some new info, as well as a lot of the same info:
