The trap door design is awesome, and the little watch pieces really give this piece an awesome character. :)

Wow! I thought the pendant looked pretty good as it was in panel 1 - and then found out that it *opened* to show more awesomeness. Beautiful work. :clap:

I love the fact that it opens...not often you see clay put together like that (at least I don't).

You know, I've always been wondering, since I don't know much about polymer clay -- What is the order you do things in??
Mold it out of clay, press stuff in, bake then paint around stuff? Could you even bake that metal stuff?

You've been uploading quite a bit of this new style and it's definitely awesome and intriguing!!

O.O Mystery or not, Keep it up!

Metal bakes just fine, it would be ruined at a much higher temp than poly clay would.

And the order I do things in kind of depends on what I'm making honestly! Sculpt/powder/paint/bake, sculpt/bake/paint/glaze, it kinda depends.

O.O! That's pretty interesting!
I know everyone has their own way of doing things -- it's pretty neat to learn some basic steps!

Keep it up -- I really do love this pendant. 19 bucks + shipping is a tempting offer! Any takers on it yet?

Yeah, I've had quite a few e-mails. I always go in order of who e-mails me first, so if the first person can't pay soon I will go on down the list to the next person. :)

Most large sculptures use a metal skeleton. So long as it's not something that melts at oven temperatures, metal is pretty safe to bake into polymer clay. That, and polymer clay is pretty rigid after baking; it'd be hard to get them set in that smoothly without baking them in place. As for how she paints around them... I'll just assume she has a steady hand and a *lot* more patience than I do.

I've known about using wire armature, but my only experience with polymer clay was it getting burnt.

I was personally a little upset by this, but I figured out that if I threw an index card under it, it won't be burned.

My pendant was burned by the cookie sheet..And I thought "Oh, metal on the OUTSIDE burns things." so I pondered and pondered!

I bet the burn was because the oven temp was too high -- I think my oven is broken because I can't even get a pie to bake right!! T_T!

Could be. I'd recommend a probe or freestanding thermometer in that case. Sculpey bakes a lot like cake. Make it too large or bake it too hot, and the outside will burn before the inside is done.

And you'd be surprised how well paint covers the brown-and-crispy spots. ;)

XD Paint did a good job for looks in my case, but it was really brittle and broke shortly after T_T

I'll get it one day!

...that is so cool!
Now I want to make something like it, but make it a working clock/pendant.

Great job!

For some reason, I find normal clocks/watches kind of boring, but broken-to-pieces ones are endearing. I think it's the rule of tiny-things-being-cute.

Those itty-bitty gears are cute!
If I ever do get around to making a watch, I'll have a few gears exposed.

How much would it be for? Because if I can afford it, I would love to reserve it (I couldn't pay until after the 15th though).

I am honestly not sure yet, I need to think about it - I am also trying to raise funds as fast as possible for something I am trying to buy that's on sale now, so I really don't want to wait any longer than I have to :( Sorry
