1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Little Red Riding Hood on: March 17, 2006 07:03:00 PM
Fimo clay
Around 25 cm tall.
In reality it doesn't look as creepy as these pictures.

Critiques are more than welcome. Though please don't tell me it's Little Green Riding Hood, it is not (I have been getting that comment too much).
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Baking Fimo Clay (Urgent!) on: February 25, 2006 12:17:38 AM
Last time I baked a sculpture I made of fimo it burned and took a horrible brown colour even though I followed the instructions in the package (30 min, 130C/265F).
I am going to bake it in a couple of hours so if you could please help me as soon as you can I would really appreciate it. Should I leave it less time or maybe less temperature or both?
Also there are parts which are thick and other that are very thin so I am really worried the thin parts will burn or maybe the thick ones won't bake enough.

This is what I am working on, the eyelids are very thin because I will later drill holes for the eyes and I don't want that part turning brown, any suggestions?

Oh and an other question, how the hell do you manage to keep the clay clean? Mine keeps getting dirty with dust while I am working on it. I don't think even if I sculpted inside a sterilized bubble I would be able to keep it clean.
3  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / Coloured pencils metal boxes on: February 01, 2006 09:55:14 AM
Any idea what to do with these?
I am using one to put envelopes but I still have a lot and don't know what to do with them.
4  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / Talk About The Swap Process / Insane mailing price? on: January 13, 2006 02:02:20 PM
I went today to the post office to send my stuff for the 2006 wishlist swap and I asked how much it would cost to send an envelope in a short amount of time. I was told that it could arrive in 3 days with delivery confirmation for around 30 dollars or I could just send it for 5 and it would arrive in about 3 weeks.
Is this what it usually costs? I would never send it for 5 dollars because it will take too long (and I don't want to get negative feedback) and I don't want to send it without any delivery confirmation but isn't 30 dollars too much for a small envelope?
I am from Chile and it is my first time sending stuff internationally so I am a little lost, is it really that expensive?
5  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / Water, water, watercolour. on: December 15, 2005 10:23:12 PM
Hello, I have been lurking around here for quite a while and I must say this is one of the best boards I have seen. Everyone is so nice.
Anyway I thought I'd introduce myself with my latest watercolours, since I don't have anything crafty to show yet.
Critiques are more than welcome.
