1 tequila...2 tequila....3 tequila....4 !!!

I made these tequilla shot Glasses for a party.
Using poly clay and a little creativity

I just wrote up the inctructions for my site so you can see the tutorial here
http://craftbits.com/project/mr-tequila-shot-glasses/

let me know what u think..



Materials: 
Poly clay in selected colors
1 color for top
1 color for pants
1 color for hat
1 color for scarf
flesh color for hands
Glass cleaner
Shot glasses 
Instructions: 
These Mr tequila shot glasses are great fun to make and are perfect for Christmas gifts or tequila parties!

There is no pattern for this project only your own creativity to guide you.

Start by making the hat, use the picture as a guide for the shape of the Mexican hat.

Add a coloured band around the hat if you like.

Roll out the colors for your mans clothing and using a knife cut out the shape of a shirt and pants as well as a long rectangle for the scarf.

Using different colors for each item of clothing helps to distinguish your little man.

you will need some hands, and a pair of shoes also.

Embellish your scarf, hat or clothes with offcuts of clay or even use different objects to create texture to his cloths, such as pressing a cloth onto the shirt.

Clean the shot glass with glass cleaning before pressing the clay onto the glass, be careful where your finger smudge marks go as sometimes they are visible after baking. so clean up the glass again just before baking it.

Bake the clay as per the instructions on your clay packet depending on what brand you are using.

Once they are baked allow to cool and coat with some clay varnish to finish them off.

I gave a set of 6 of these to a friend with a bottle of tequila for a housewarming party and placed all the items into a big Mexican hat which I taped to some heavy cardboard for stability and then filled the rim with straw then decoratively placed my items around the hat.

This way the hat not only acts as a basket the host can wear it at the party or you can place it on the table filled with chips!! great fun.

this is sort of relevant -- have you ever heard that phrase: "1 tequila, 2 tequila, 3 tequila...floor!" ?

I wouldnt drop them into a sink of water or put them into the dishwasher but the rinse out with hot soapy water and then just pat them dry..

so far no problems..
