I don't have fabulous photos of this fun new craft..And my initial trial leaves much to be desired.. so in all it's flaws..I'll still share in case you want to try some before Christmas..
I initially landed upon the technique by happenstance..and wanted to try..
They really should be painted afterwards..but I wanted the shell to stand out..
You use a stamping set..
That you can find on EBAY or Etsy..
And you use Fimo..Or Sculpey..
I think they are so much fun to make as gift tags etc..
My friend Nancy is doing me a helpful favor..I bought her Eat Pray Love..the soundtrack..I'll wrap it up and attach this little baked clay gift tag..Imagine the possibilities..
Didn't love the book..only the Italy part really got to me..but LOVED the movie and the soundtrack..It's got to be because of Julia.. And Javier.. They are both endearing.... Julia..to me is just special in movies.. as Penelope is too..Ok and Meryl..and Diane Keaton:)Love her too.Not to mention Juliette..and Audrey T and Audrey H..And Katherine H..the list goes on and on..but not too long~
A bit like our Brigitte cookies:)
I wish I could find the link where I found the tutorial..Hers were beautiful! I saved it...and have lost the link..As soon as I find it again..I will share..She preferred the dark Fimo..and painting white on top then rubbing off..
I'll look into that:)
There is a technique..I did stamp a bit too hard..you should not see the circles.. A cookie cutter would make better shapes..The ones I made so far are freehand~
Oh and yes the kiss lying on it's side was an error..But it was all done..It adds charm:) I hope..But it is a mistake..:)(Embarrassed).
I made little ones for the alphabet boys..w/ shark's teeth..I am tempted to make necklaces:)As if..they would wear them:) Shark's teeth..the older boys might like that..Most probably they will end up as cool gift tags for them on a certain Christmas present:)
Thank goodness the shell is distracting:)
Almost as much as the alligator~Eating a shoe with his sharp shell teeth~
Have a lovely weekend~
PS..I found the LINK!
