Yes they are press molded.
The brooch was from an old brooch my mom gave me and the others from from antique bottle tops!

I've started making jewelry from Sculpey and I'm really enjoying it. Here are some things I recently made...

The bigger one with the dog is a brooch. The other silvery metal looking one is a pin, and the other smaller unpainted ones are earrings.

Ah, you see?
13  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Chair Primping on: August 09, 2009 04:53:33 PM
My boyfriend brought home this wonderfully ridiculous chair from his work a few weeks ago:

It was dirty as hell, but quite comfortable! It required some primping so we headed for the fabric store. Here is what it looks like after some much needed reupholstering and spray paint:

17  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Paragon In Bibelot on: April 06, 2009 11:57:14 AM
I made this little creature over a year ago for a friend. I also wrote a short story to go along with it. It was called, "Paragon in Bibelot"

So you know...

paragon /ˈprəˌgɒn, -gən/
1. a model or pattern of excellence or of a particular excellence.
2. Printing. a 20-point type.
3. an unusually large, round pearl.
verb (used with object)
4. to compare; parallel.
5. to be a match for; rival.
6. Obsolete. to surpass.
7. Obsolete. to regard as a paragon.

bibelot /ˈbɪbloʊ; Fr. bibəˈloʊ/
noun, plural -lots /-loʊz; Fr. -ˈloʊ/
a small object of curiosity, beauty, or rarity.

His story is a sad one, if you'd like to know it you can read it here: http://fleshmechanics.org/bibelot/

There are also additional photos there too.

Basically I just made the form from clay, then wrapped it with wool. I used spray adhesive to attach the wool, and that become really messy really quickly. My fingers and hands were very very hairy.
19  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Soot on: March 29, 2009 11:35:06 AM
I made this little thing from a little bit of clay and some left over wool I had. To me, he looks like a spot of soot from a candle, so that is what I call 'im.

I also made a larger one, that I named Singe, but I like Soot better.

Thanks KiwiQ! I did start out with an armature of wire and tin foil. It was really flimsy, I'm not very good at constructing those things!  I made him over a span of a couple weeks. He's actually not finished because he needs a monocle, but I kept breaking them! I just used regular acrylic craft paints because I'm cheap and that's all I have. Smiley
Oh! and, I will post some other creatures soon!

Diane- I will probably buy some SS-firm. thanks for the suggestion. Am I understanding the info right that it is not only stronger after baking but the clay itself is firm and not as soft as Super Sculpey? I did find it sort of a bother that the clay was so soft that I would lose details and shapes easily just by handling it.
