Ive been fiddling around with polymer clay lately and i thought id finally come and post some of the things ive made. i know this is kinda meant to be posted with the jewlery and trinkets, but i thought you guys would like it over here since its polymer clay so i posted it here instead.

i made the shape of the clay, and pit an indent with the pin in the back. i then baked it, painted it and sealed it with a spray finish i have had for quite a while. i then glued it to the pin with a very strong glue so it wouldnt break easily. im sorry for the dark images i had used my cell camera for the pictures.

i'd love to hear any comments or suggestions you may have about them

I love the pink ones too!  Are they bobbie pins on them?
« Reply #5 on: January 25, 2011 11:08:02 PM »

Yeah, they're just normal bobby pins. i know you can get ones with a round flat spot at the end so you can glue stuff to, but my glue is really strong. i tried to break one off of a set i didn't really care for, to see it if was going to just break, and i couldn't so i don't feel i need to buy those ones. i put an indent on the back of the piece of polymer clay before i baked it(by pushing the pin into it) so the pin is a bit set in, i think that's what made it extra sturdy, rather than having a flat bottom to the piece and trying to glue it to the curved end.

They are so cute. Did use a cane to make those?

No i didnt use a cane for any of them, ive never actually made a cane before. All i did was make same size balls out of white sculpty press them flat, indent with the hair pin and bake. i then painted and glazed them before glueing them on. for the skull shaped ones i made the circles but pressed in the bottom then finished them off the same as the others.
