Title: I'm a NUT!
Post by: Monty on March 01, 2010 04:09:15 PM
...and everybody steps on me.

Here is my first challenge entry.


Using the air drying clay I made acorns and a peanut. After the clay dried I painted them with acrylic paint and stuck in a wire and sprayed with a clear paint to seal it all.

I had a great time making these little charms. Thanks!

Thanks everyone for the awesome comments and suggestions.  ;D
Makes me happy to see comments from others. So thanks for making my day!!
I think that they would make neat earrings. I'll have to try to keep them both the same size the next time.

wonderful charms, I love them.

not if soaked in running clean water for 24 hours. then they can be ground and made into a wierd tasting pastry, or baked until golden brown and used as a coffee substitute. if in doubt, ask a hippy.
