11  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Jar of Whimsy swap anyone? on: March 01, 2012 11:50:15 AM
I'm not sure if one has already been done recently but I'm desperate to do one!


Much like this. Round 11 perhaps, if it hasn't been done already (Searches indicate not)

Or a smaller version! Like Matchbox of whimsy? To keep the costs down yo'!

Let me know!

12  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / English Summer Rose Set on: July 24, 2011 11:58:00 PM
This set was inspired by the English roses my Mother is growing in her garden, the rich pink petals melting into a soft yellow seamlessly and their rich scent is so nice on a summer's day (when we get one here in England!)

All the roses have been handmade using fimo blends to create the transition from pink to yellow.

Silver plated findings have been used and the pieces are adorned with real crystal Swarovski beads

Thanks for looking! x
13  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Milk and Cookies Set on: July 24, 2011 11:53:58 PM
I am so happy with how this turned out!
My cookies look so real I might cry and the milk glasses are pretty sweet too.

The cookies are made with fimo dusted with chalk pastel.

The milk glasses are handmade and filled with tinted liquid clay.

Comes as a charm bracelet featuring 4 cookies and 3 milk glasses and two matching earrings, a pair of cookies and a pair of glasses filled with milk so can wear milk & milk, Cookie & cookie or Milk & Cookie!

14  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Miniature British Seaside Picnic (Image V/ Heavy) on: June 03, 2011 02:14:21 AM
A couple of months ago I entered a contest on Deviant Art. Didn't win sadly but I'm still awful proud of the piece I made. It was for a club and was all about picnics, create your favourite fantasy picnic.

I went for good old British fish 'n' Chips.

It's wet. It's cold. It's windy. It's Scarborough in October.
Scarborough has to be one of my favourite places ever. This is where we holidayed as a family and it's where I go to get some happy. And now it's the place where I got engaged (and where I'm hopefully going to get married!)

My ideal picnic is one I've had many a time: Seafood surprise cups (Prawns and Crab sticks) Fish and chips in paper eaten with small wooden forks, mushy peas and curry to go with the fish, cup of Tea, cup of Hot Chocolate and to finish it off a strawberry cream ice lolly (my favourite) and a Twister (My OH's favourite) All eaten sat on the beach, come glorious British sunshine (10 degrees) or glorious British rain (you know, minus 4 for something)

The sand and the rock are actually from Scarborough beach.
And the postcard is one I pulled from the internet here(It's circa 1970, but to be honest, Scarborough is stuck in 1970)

Everything is handmade by me out of polymer clay. Even the cups and polystyrene underneath of the fish and chips tray. Grease proof paper and a coffee stirrer have been used too!

I've had so much fun making this, and I'm awfully proud of it, my first miniature set. Hope you like it too!

Onto the pictures!

15  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Polymer Clay Hair Clips on: September 30, 2010 03:52:31 PM
I've made cookies. I want to attach them to those 'snap' hair clip/slides. The cookies are flat backed.
I've tried Araldite, they lasted 2 openings before peeling away.
I also tried liquid clay and these too peeled away.
Anyone have any thoughts?
Would sanding the backs be worth anything?
Hot glue?

Stressseedd >.>

Any help would be appreciated. xx
16  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Zombie Fingers (Many Pics) on: February 03, 2009 12:26:41 PM
All these cuties are made from fimo that was squished into a mold of my pinkie. Painted up. Glossed up. Looking rather swish me thinks.

Thanks for looking Cheesy

17  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Vial question... on: January 06, 2009 01:05:40 PM
Might be a daft question, but if I were to put water in those tiny vials would it go off? Or food colouring? Just wondered if it would go off is all? Oh and if it does whats the best stuff to put in then?

Much thanks for any help

19  FIBER ARTS / Felting: Completed Projects / First Ever Needle Felt - Mini Turtle on: December 17, 2008 05:17:40 PM
So I've wet felted before, just a little bit for college and such, but I've seen some amazing needle felted stuff on here and thought "yes, I could do that"
So I did. I think something bigger would have worked better but he's rather cute. But for future reference, needle felting is rather dangerous, I nicked my fingers a few time >.> Heh but good fun, so onto my mini turlte

Comments - crit welcomed Smiley Thanks for looking
