I made this for Knickertwist for the IYP Round 20 swap.  And I was sooooo very tempted to keep it for myself!  I love it!

The finished product!


The very beginning.  I started with the doors and built from there.


Building up and adding windows.

I really had a blast working on this project and I may have to make myself another one!

My kidlet was blown away by this (as he should be!) and gasped aloud "It's a jar, mum!" Seriously cool and I'm a lucky duck to be it's proud owner Smiley

Thanks for the comments y'all!  Knickertwist - I'm so glad your kiddo likes it.  Smiley

La Chapa - It's polymer clay.  I used Premo and Sculpey III.

This makes a really cute, apparently functional jar. I've never seen polymer clay on glass like that; did you really bake it?

The jar is completely functional.  I just put the clay right on the glass and baked it.  It bakes at such a low temperature that it doesn't affect the glass at all.  I'm thinking there may be more in the future.  I have more jars to play with.  Grin

Very nice!!  I love "little houses" and scenes and covering bottles with polymer clay, so you got me on both counts Grin...oh and functional stuff too so a triple play.

For your building stones, did you use one of the faux stone clay "colors" or did you add your own inclusions to translucent/etc??
