Ok, this was py secret project for a while...its not completely finished (nothing is..jeje) but here it is...enjoy and i hope you to get inspired Cheesy



This is how i begun...with a sketch that ends in somewhere of my room, next with newspaper and wire to hang it out and take the form that i wanted...






Then, came the Polymer Clay...here i use it cold, 'cause i dont really know how to use the one which has to be baked......this took me yearssss (not really, like 2 months, but is just because im toooo lazy, jeje)
Ohh..btw, i made the graves with industrial paperboard (carton industrial), but with the polymer, the kind of..get curvy  Undecided






And the almost end was this, with paint and all that....it looks like empty, uhh?






And here it is!!!!!! Holding all my accesories and stuffs....its easier to find them this way Cheesy

Very cool!  

Did you bend your own wire for the hooks and attach them around the branches before adding the clay?

Not sure which kind of clay you used. Huh  Did you actually use a polymer clay (the kind that must be cured with heat to harden) and just not ever harden it?  
Your clay looks hard though, so perhaps you used one of the air-dry clays instead of polymer clay (which is now dried, hard and painted over)?  
That could make sense too if the kind of clay you used shrank during drying, causing the cardboard base to bend (..though polymer clays sometimes also need to be held flat to prevent any bending of cardboard underneath during baking, or to be used on both sides if there's paint/etc on one side of the cardboard).

Thank you so much for the comments Cheesy

Diane B: I use the only clay that is sold here (Porcelanicron in spanish), and is air-dry...im a little scared try to heat it...it doesnt have ANY instructions en the bag, so its kind of hard that way..
And the wires and the hooks...all is before the clay...
