Hooray! My first project in the polyclay board!

I was reading "Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West" and had this idea for a funny bookmark Smiley I'm sure someone else has to have had this idea before, but I couldn't find it via google, so I had to make one.


The legs are formed of polyclay, but I had to paint em white after baking because they turned brown in the oven :/ Oh well... Then I painted the rest of the details with acrylic inks. And I made sure to cut a slit in the top of the legs before baking, so I'd have a place to attach the rest of the bookmark!


I could have made a more awesome bookmark part of the bookmark, but it was late last night, and I couldn't be bothered... If I decide to make another, I'll definitely papercraft it up and make a legit Oz-themed bookmark.


Hi ho, the witch is dead!

Thanks for looking Cheesy

Thanks for the comments guys! Yeah if you make one, I wanna see it! My #1 advice is to not get impatient for ink to dry Smiley I couldn't stop touching those legs and they got kinda smudgy... And don't forget to cut slits at the top!

Brilliant idea, just brilliant! Do you giggle every time you go to read your book now? They look really well made too.
