that is a pretty candle holder. very nicely done. i like the spiral patterns
i wonder though. is polymer clay the same as that femo stuff?
how did you do this? make the shapes, cut them out, stuck them on and put them in the oven?
if so i must give this a try! i have so much femo and nothing to do with it.
this gives me an idea
Glad you like it, my friend (who received it yesterday) is over the moon so I must have done something right! That's right, Fimo is a brand of polymer clay
You can use it to cover pretty much anything that you can safely put in the oven
Often a 'cane' is created and tiny slices of this design are applied to the surface of whatever you want to cover. I must warn you, this is highly addictive so it's a good job you have all that clay!
Those (the purple one and the one on your avatar) are really neat! I have some hurricane lamps that could use some pizazz. Coolness!
Thanks so much
Ooo hurricane lamps would be so pretty, if you give this I try I hope you'll share the results
Thats really pretty! How did you get the clay to stcik to the candle holder?
Thank you! I didn't use anything to get the clay to stick, clay bonds to the glass really really well without any help, although I'm sure a layer of liquid clay would make the bond extra strong
There's a slightly more in depth (and rambling!) explanation of the process I use in my blog
if you feel like trying this for yourself
Please share if you do try, I'd love to see what you wonderful Craftsters come up with
