A variety of lollipop charms made using Sculpey III polymer clay, toothpicks and eye pins. Glazed using Sculpey Gloss varnish. I figured that considering I'm fairly new to the whole polymer clay scene, I'd start off with lollipops which seemed simple to make but can look very effective. =)

Thank you so much!! =) I've been browsing all the wonderful things people make with polymer clay on here for years! =) my family have stalls at a few local craft fairs and such, so I thought I'd finally try a few things out for myself. =)

Ohhh! I would love love love to sell at a craft fair some day! I'm far off though. I don't even know where to get started. I enjoy resin charms, though I've never posted anything I've made. I hope to build my skill up and incorporate my own art. For now it's mostly glitter. If you are looking to broaden your craft horizons, I really suggest checking out resin. <3

Clay isn't for me. I can't make anything without having my fingerprints clearly visible, and I think that's a turnoff. I've never been good and keeping things together either. So let's say I made a snowman. No matter how hard I tried to keep those 3 balls together after baking without glue, I simply can't. I've tried several methods, but they tend to pop right off. (Only now is it coming to me that I should try small pieces of metal wire or sticks... Thank brain. Great timing.)

That sounds like amazing fun! I'm super jealous. Sounds like I may just have to watch you to see more. <3

Aww - I definitely know what you mean. It's tricky if there aren't many held locally, or regularly enough, there are a lot of variables! Admittedly, I'm in a fortunate position with my parents taking part and all, because I definitely know what you mean! I wouldn't know where to begin otherwise! And resin sounds cool - I haven't checked it out as yet, but I definitely think I will! =) I admittedly started out with sugar paste of all things (mom makes and decorates cakes and such), but the sugar starts to dissolve when it gets too warm >_< but in terms of actually making things ... I love it!

I know what you mean - definitely something I'm still battling with! xD but practice makes perfect and all that ... or so I hope! And that's definitely a pain! I do think clay can be temperamental like that, definitely ... although the wires are certainly worth a try, especially with non-edibles! =) I know there are all kind of food hygiene rules that mom's come up against which sometimes make things difficult. >_<

Aww, thank you so much for the watch! <3 hopefully, I'll be uploading more once I can get the right set up - lollipops are ok to photograph on a white plate and such, actually, a lot of things are, but I'd really like to make a show of it! =)
