Absolutely stunning. How big is she?

She is 6 1/4 in tall at the highest point and 10 in long.

They are wonderful!  What size dimensions are they?  I love the bench you have them on too.  I love the sheen on them too.

Thank you.

The tallest ones are 1 1/2in tall, the smallest is 7/16in tall.

Here are some of the pumpkins I sculpted this year from polymer clay.

the pumpkins are all under 2in tall

These silly and scary faces are so fun to sculpt  Grin

Also I made the bench and tree with a 3D pen, craft sticks, and a little bit of wire.

19  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / New earring rack, new bag on: September 27, 2016 02:35:38 AM
I bought a new earring rack recently, so I need a bag to store it in and that would also be good for carrying it around.

(I also made the earrings. They are polymer clay, they represent the berries that grow in the part of Alaska that I am from. There are other berries, but ones visible in the photo are blueberry and salmon berry (as we call them here, but they are also known as cloud berries), they might be hard to see but there are cranberries peeking out from the bottom left behind the blueberries.)

I stitched the outside of the seams to give it a little more structure, I also cut and put some bamboo skewers between the lining and outer fabrics on the top of the bag so that the sides of the bag would keep a square shape and not flop together when it is being carried, and I put a thin 1/8 in piece of plywood in the bottom of the bag to keep it from sagging when it is lifted. I could have painted the wood black to match the inside of the bag, but since it won't be seen much, I probably won't Roll Eyes

Wow, he's quite a babe!  (nyuk nyuk)

You can insulate the clay while baking to reduce browning:
Put a layer of polyester batting on your cooking tray and place the item on that (which also prevents shiny spots from the clay touching a hot surface), then cover with a second layer of batting.  Since I cook in a toaster oven (dedicated to crafts, not food), I put a layer of foil on top of the batting. 

Bake as usual, in a well-ventilated area.
I've used the same batting several times; it starts to get a little melty, but doesn't catch fire.  Keep a close eye on yours, just in case!

Thanks. This pretty much describes my usual baking process, I have small oven just for clay too Smiley
