I tried my hand w/ Fimo clay for my swap partner in the Video Game Swap.  She requested stitch markers for knitting.  What nerd is complete without a set of nerdy stitch markers for nerdy knitty?  Well she is definitely complete now! 

Ocarinas from Zelda and Mushrooms from Mario!


The ocarinas ended up having a lot of fingerprint ridges, and I wasn't sure what to do with that.  I guess I could have sanded them down, but I didn't, since they were so small.  I painted them w/ regular acrylic paint and added a clear coat to them afterwards. 





Thanks for looking!

I use gloves for certain things (the latexy non-latex kind :3)  You might want to try that!  Made life a lot easier for me XD

Thanks for all the nice comments!

I used Folkart's Artists' Varnish Gloss.  Its a polyurethan protective sealer.  It worded pretty well for what I wanted.  Made 'em nice and shiny and gave a nice layer between my paint and world.
