Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

that's brilliant, and I really appreciate all the pictures and discussion of how you got the various details just right.  It has a really great polished finish, what do you use for that shine?

That answer gives me a little headache right now.  Undecided

I used glossy varnish by Eberhard Faber http://fimocreations.jimdo.com/tools/varnishing/.


Because I was running short on it I got the gloss varnish by Staedtler - this company took over the fimo section ... and what shall I say?!
This got more to do with water than with varnish.
I did complain to the company, but still have to send them this little glass.

As far as I experienced this product I have no idea what I´m going to do if the bottle is empty ...  Huh
