I think I never posted those weirdos  Grin

- I never knew about Xmas pickles until recently- and it's way too fun to make them. So, every Xmas I try to make just a few cause they're quick fun projects ... and who doesn't love pickles!

Made some questionable ones this year  Grin - I think the sun-dried pickle is the most "out there" of them all... also my fav, lol.




and if someone can tell me what is a good sealant for polymer clay, that does not get sticky (like mod podge, crystal glaze etc) and isn't shiny ... like resin  (which I love and use - but is sooo shiny - too shiny for many of my projects) - please do tell me! <3

From an Arizona viewpoint, they look like cacti!
(I might try that hack for next Christmas...)

For the sealant, try a clear spray.  I used to use spray over mod podge to kill the stickiness. 
Haven't used the 'Podge since moving to the desert, but I've been told that it doesn't stay sticky here.  I wonder if you could bake it at very low temp to dry it out completely.  And if it would stay dry afterward.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

What a hoot!

For a top coating, why not an acrylic varnish in spray or brush-on?

I love these Christmas pickles!!! Their expressions are amazing. When I would make polymer clay buttons, I would seal them in Future Floor Polish. I think it is a Pedge product now. You can find it in hardware stores, it's super cheap, easy to use and cleans up like a breeze. http://www.polymerclayweb.com/materials/finishes/futurefloorpolish.aspx

I haven't had much luck with spray sealants since Krylon changed its formula. I have been using DecoArt DuraClear polyurethane varnish. It works well and comes in matte, satin, and gloss.

Cool holiday pickle people!  The sun-dried one is also my favorite (you could categorize it as a ghost pickle too), followed by the one with the long black tongue.

Is that what a sun-dried pickle actually looks like (minus the face and hat of course)?  I've never tried to dry a pickle, nor did I even know it was possible to do so.
