hiya all. i made some of these over the last month or two and havent posted pics yet as i was waiting to send one in a swap and didnt want to give the game away lol.........


anyways one day i was sitting there fiddling with a odd blob of soft pink poly clay in my hand and found myself pressing it into a spent bottle top just messing fiddling while watching tv thinking about what i could do with the clay using the bottle top to make prints and then i ralised i was making a tree in the bottle top not with the bottle top......... so i pulled in my focus grabbed a cocktail stick and made.......

the bottle top tree needed a friend..so i decided to make a set of earth, air, fire, and water.....

Earth=the tree
http://i559.photobucket.com/albums/ss34/LilMissHev/Craftster/SDC10016-1.jpg
air= a dove
http://i559.photobucket.com/albums/ss34/LilMissHev/Craftster/SDC10008.jpg
fire= a volcano
http://i559.photobucket.com/albums/ss34/LilMissHev/Craftster/SDC10009-1.jpg
and water= a seahorse
http://i559.photobucket.com/albums/ss34/LilMissHev/Craftster/SDC10010.jpg
and turned them all into  fridge magnets....



then as my rats are my  true love i found myself sculpting a little image of of one of my hairless rats sausage into a bottle top..........

totally hooked on sticking things in bottle tops i promptly went out an bought a big bag of 50 bottle tops for 1

i then made another similar rat sculpture to send to my swap partner as she has some hairless rats too, and turned it into a pendant

i then finally started playing with some coloured clay and made a little black and white hooded rat in a bottle top.......with pendant fittings

Your sculpting skills are amazing!  And, how great is it that you discovered this by just fiddling around!?

The seahorse is my favorite...the tiny rats are just so cute...the detail in their tails is amazing!
