I'm completely drooling over these.  Shocked A few of them got smunched a little but I think it adds character. It all started while I was watching the Mummy on tv and noticed how beautiful scarab beetles are. Inspired... I set off and made these. Hope you all like them!

Well I was going to keep it a secret... but hey... I've received so much from everyone here... I guess it's my turn to give back even if it's just a little.

Avon body shimmer powder in gold. I love this stuff because it isn't sparkly... it's pearly. I brushed it on before sticking them in the oven. Once they were cooled off I varnished them.

Wow - those are really beautiful. What is fimo, a type of clay? I would love to make things like that...the Avon shimmer was a great idea, too.

Thanks again everyone!

Jaci:
I asked the very same question a few months ago. What is fimo?
You can buy it at a craft store. They are little bricks of clay in every color imaginable that you can cook in a regular conventional (right word?) oven. Another brand is Sculpey.
