I have been making charms today - some of them I am not sure about.
I don't like sending anything out that I would not be happy to receive myself - so please help me to decide which ones are sent and which ones should not. I have enough time to make some more and these were my first attempt.
These are close ups and much bigger than the charms themselves as the charms are less than an inch square
2 and 3
These are highly magnified!
Stamped into and painted
These have been made out of Friendly Plastic and painted
Melted and poked about a bit
They look very shiny in real life
Like black polished pebbles
With the exception of the leaves the backs are all this pattern
Sorry about the glare reflection - its shiny and difficult to capture.
Roll, squashed, poked about and painted
Same method but no two are the same
I am not too keen on this one - so I think it will be rejected
I did the veining with a pokey tool and it looks a bit thick
The charms are going on a silver bracelet
As before, squashed and poked
Unlucky for some - this is headed for the bin I think
I copied a dried seed pod- think it didn't translate too well
Maybe I need to paint the pod in the middle - pod colour!
I enjoyed making this one - but now that it is enlarged a great deal - it looks like a beheaded beetle's belly with a six pack!
That's it for now folks.
Please leave a comment on the ones that are rejects. I really do truly want to know - and I have plenty of time to make some more.
