From the album: First Dollhouse DC San Franciscan SF557I made a couple of marble hearths out of polymer clay for the San Franciscan. One is thick and one is thinner. I'm leaning towards the thinner one, as I like the swirls. I may use the other one in another room or I may make another. This was Miranda's (SewMini) idea, that I have shamelessly stolen. Gotta watch out for us Aussies.. we have convict blood. Thanks Miranda! I watched a tutorial but there was too much mixing and I ended up with hardly any veins. Operator error no doubt. So essentially I just loosely mixed pearl, silver & translucent clay. Then separately I loosely mixed white with a small amout of black. Then I rolled everything in a ball and then made snake ropes, by rolling it out into a long snake, folding and then twisting it like a corkscrew. then back into a ball, roll out and cut to size. Much simpler!
I need to pay more attention to weekly ads. Michael's has 2oz packages of clay 4 for $5. I have never made anything with clay, but it is time to learn. I spent $20 to learn...lol. Hobby Lobby has 30% off all clay packages, not matter what brand or size. Also, HL has 40% off all scrapbook and paper materials. I need to go back. I had a 40% off coupon on my phone for each place, but didn't use either as I didn't buy anything at full price.
