Okay - so if you bake them in the oven don't the bristles melt?  I've never done bakey clay projects before so I'm really curious about it all.... not that I see me making any anytime in the near future lol.  I'm so craft backlogged it's just sad.   Shocked

Snakes on a brush, Egyptian find, Pretty Pretty Flowers


 Enough is enough! I have had it with these monkey-fighting snakes on this Monday-to-Friday plane!

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

I really loooove the last ones. I'm pretty amazed that it doesn't burn at all in the oven, what are the bristles made of?

These are wooden bristles but I've done ones with nylon and plastic bristles. Plasic brushes are a no no, those have melted on me. Why the bristles don't melt on me is a mystery....

(It's just that all plastics aren't all the same.  For example, some are thermosetting plastics like polymer clay which harden just once, and some are thermoplastics which can be melted and rehardened repeatedly. 
Plastics also come in different types which are made from different or slightly different materials or proportions, which can affect the temp at which they begin to distort, melt, shrink, burn or melt... e.g., the white barrel plastic Bic Stic pens are unaffected by the baking temp of polymer clay, but the clear ones will shrink and distort when covered with clay and baked. Also, rubbery type plastics like Rubbermaid and some other flexible containers won't be eaten into by raw polymer clay stored in them, but many of the hard clear plastics will --acrylic sheets won't though even though they're clear and hard. And some plastics are mixes of different types too, like the #7 recycling group of plastics. 
The plastics on the borderline for doing bad stuff at our regular baking temps can often be used, but for those the temp around the plastic has to be insulated or protected in some way, with partial or complete enclosing, etc, so that plastic never gets heat any higher than the temp set on the dial --e.g., plastic film cannisters can be covered with clay and baked, and the clay is insulating in itself; but if not protected by one of the baking techniques, the bit of bare plastic that may not be covered at the top end can have problems.)

These are lovely.  You could also do hand mirrors and combs (although, combs might melt) and give them as little gifts.  I would love to get something like that.
