Ah have a question about the... loop thingers. How do you get them to stay in properly? Mine always fall out. T_T
I'm loving the apple! And all the smilies are adoreable.
mine come out if I pull on them but I've never had any issues with them just falling out on their own. Maybe try putting some nothces onto the rod part of the loop before you psh it into the sculpey?
that might help secure it. Or, even if you add a small ring of hotglue around where you put it in after you've baked it.
I have had this problem too. I have tried adding notches or slight bends to the eyepins to help they stay in and they still come out when pulled (Or i actually had a sneezing fit and sneezed a charm right off my necklace). I bought this glue from Michael's that was made for small plastic objects (think dollhouse items) and it works wonderfully. After i bake them if the pins wiggle or come out i pull it out add some glue and put it back and let it dry. That or you could use head pins. They are like eyepins but have a little foot at the bottom. You push the pin in from the bottom and have the wire come out at the top and make your own loop. They work well to because the tiny foot at the bottom keeps them from sliding out.
Alright, thanks guys! I'm off to get some more eye & head pins tomorrow, hopefully one of these ideas will work properly.
