Well, I tried to make some Pokemon Gym Leader Badges out of Fimo and acrylic paints.  Clay isn't really my main medium, so I struggled a bit with the technique.  They're cool, but they kind of look like a kid made them! 

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to make this kind of thing look better?  Anyway, here they are:

Friggin sweet.  I would pin these on the inner lapel of MY denim vest

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

awesome. they look good. just like the cartoon.
you could try the colored assortment. no painting necessary.
maybe some triple thick to make them super shiny!

Awesome pin set! I'd wear them, too. Cheesy

I agree with ideasushi: you could try using colored clay so you don't have to paint them. Also, I use Judikins glaze to make my painted clay stuff shiny, and it always looks about a million times better after the coat of glaze.

Those are awesome!

I'll agree with the suggestions of using colored clay, too.

They look great!

I agree about using colord clay. A trick I've found is applying glaze to clay. It really makes it look 100x better.
