Well, I tried to make some Pokemon Gym Leader Badges out of Fimo and acrylic paints.  Clay isn't really my main medium, so I struggled a bit with the technique.  They're cool, but they kind of look like a kid made them! 

Does anyone have any suggestions for how to make this kind of thing look better?  Anyway, here they are:

Friggin sweet.  I would pin these on the inner lapel of MY denim vest

If it had grown up, it would have made a dreadfully ugly child; but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think.

you could try the colored assortment. no painting necessary.
maybe some triple thick to make them super shiny!

Awesome pin set! I'd wear them, too. Cheesy

I agree with ideasushi: you could try using colored clay so you don't have to paint them. Also, I use Judikins glaze to make my painted clay stuff shiny, and it always looks about a million times better after the coat of glaze.

I'll agree with the suggestions of using colored clay, too.

They look great!

I agree about using colord clay. A trick I've found is applying glaze to clay. It really makes it look 100x better.
