Fimo Clay Delights!

I’ve been super busy this week with work but here are a few things I’ve been making recently. I attempted a rainbow cake, although I used translucent clays and they went darker once baked. I might try this again with better colours. The translucent colours did work really well when I made these two octopus in tins – how cute are they! I love them. I used sand, shells and resin to create a sea effect and made tiny corals and star fish with clay. Β I am so pleased with how they came out. I love doing sea themes and am planning a bigger piece to begin soon.

I have also been making some tiny fairies as a request from my sister and giving them some shimmer with perfect pearls. She wants to make a fun jam jar project with some children at a nursery she works at so I will make some fairy houses and toadstools to go with these.

This is a shorter post but I have also been working on my YouTube channel and plan to make some more videos. Will keep everyone updated!

Nautical Themed Shadowbox

I am so happy with the way this box has turned out. I’ve been thinking and working on it for ages, collecting and finding things to go with my theme. I did intend to use a much smaller box but then I got the little boat and it didn’t fit. I felt the boat and message in the bottle were the integral pieces, so I just got a bigger box! I also love the shells, and used some sand textured gel at the bottom to give it a beach effect. I can’t wait to do another one! I’ve actually got so many craft/shadow box ideas going on at the moment!

I am going to put this up on my Etsy Shop, so if you are interested please click the link and have a look. Thanks! πŸ™‚
