So I have started my long descent into the mania of polymer faux-sweet crafting...  >.<  But I loooove it!  I have learned a ton in the past month or so since I started, and you can see some of my earlier mistakes in some of my pieces (notably, dust--my nemesis!--and fingerprints, which I am still working on getting rid of), but I figured I would share with you guys.  Smiley  Ignore the long bits of wire--I just haven't trimmed/shaped any of the stems into loops/etc.

If you guys have any extra tips or tricks, I would love to learn!















lol, you can see a pesky fingerprint on the bear's head...it's just so hard to smooth all them away!  As I'm smoothing, I invariably leave more fingerprints elsewhere!  Tongue  I also decided to give cameos a go, and I enjoy the idea I have going here...more to come, perhaps?  Wink

Nice job. I think they look great, fingerprints and all. Hmm, maybe I need to try out polymer clay?

Love 'em!

What are you using to get the texture on the ice cream cones!?  I can't find ANYTHING I like to make that pattern.  So basically, my cones look like sandpaper. ha!

I just made my own texture block, based on a tutorial I found over at the miniatures page of Glass Attic.  I don't quite remember where it was, but just look around and I'm sure you'll find it!  Smiley

Don't remember what all's there right now**, but did you perhaps use a mesh of some kind?... like plastic canvas, or some kind of wire mesh, then bake and make a reverse mold?  Otherwise, you'd need an original that had lots of square bumps on it to make the right mold in one step. 
(Or could create impressed grid lines of your own, then bake and make mold from that.)

**can try doing a search for the word "waffle" on the Miniatures page:
