Hello again,  Grin

I never was really happy with the baby jesus I made ... just because it was Christmas ... still no baby Jesus ... and I hurried - unfortunately.
This was it: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=340827.0



So, this year, I took my time and changed the colors. (yellow and blue arent a good match)



Instead of laying a twisted piece of aluminum foil underneath I stabilized it with massive role of brown fimo ... choose whatever is left - nobody will see it.




Then I formed several plates of fimo ... using sunlike yellow, some yellow mixed with white, some yellow mixed with a tiny little bit of brown.

Cut the edge into stripes - and the whole plate into halfes, thirdes, ... place them on the ring and work your way up.


I like this crib much better, because it presents Baby Jesus so much better. Before it was so flat and tiny.



I like the big feet !  Grin
But be careful with using color ... look at these eyelashes ... brown works much better here ! (unfortunately Ill always see it)

Oh, and it got eyebrows  Shocked




What do you say?

Have a nice day!
