the first one is so beautiful! i love the message, i love the hair, and i love the flowers. what incredible detail!

have you ever thought about doing stage makeup? the bruising looks really well done! (i feel like that was kind of innapropriate thing to say in this context... but it's true!)

Um... WOW!  Shocked Those look so professional and detailed, like they would have to be machine made, but it's much cooler that they are handmade. You are definitely talented, and I really like all of them. Props!  Grin

Thanks everyone, y'all are very kind  Kiss  I really loved making these, and it makes me happy that people are as excited about them as I am!  I'll be making more, I'll post when I do.

Upthread a bit, someone asked if I have any pointers to share.  I do have a few Smiley  First, sand your tin.  I used to skip this step, and I ended up with oodles of air bubbles under the smooth clay.  This time, because I really wanted them as close to perfect as possible, I sanded them, first with a fine buffing block, then (over the parts that wouldn't show) with a rough (not sure which grit) piece of sandpaper.  I had almost no bubbling!  Yay!  Second, try not to use too many solid colors when you're sculpting small groups of things like flowers--swirl two or three colors together, then form petals and leaves.  Otherwise, you'll have no depth, and the objects won't look so impressive.  My photos don't show a lot of the detail, but the flowers look like I worked a lot harder than I did Smiley 

Thanks again Smiley

These are honestly the coolest things I've ever seen on Craftster. Ever. You must take me under your wing and teach me the ways of polymer clay gore.

Haha, thank you!  I've dabbled in makeup, it's really fun.  My best friend and I gave ourselves fake black eyes for our new driver's license photos; you can see mine, but it doesn't look it's best due to the distance from the camera :p
