Just one to show for 2012 - polymer clay box



I made several boxes or glases with polymer clay (Fimo classic) as gifts for christmas. They take some time to make, every single one, but I just love the details and how they look. But being stressed at that time (christmas, work and Rumpel and me moving together) I only managed to take some fast picture of one of all the boxed made. One... I just realized this after christmas ^^ 


I made them in different colours and sizes, adding some glas nuggets and beads in some of the surfaces...

..and stamped with metal stamps (stamps used for book printing) the year 2012 on top. I also didn't manage to make on for myself. Even if my first idea was to create one every year with the date included just to see how my methods and style will evolve during time. And being in south corea at the moment I don't have any possibility to make one now. The apartment from the university in which I can stay is really great and has a very high technical standard but it misses an oven. They don't use them here... so no clay work for me until coming back!


And just to mention it again: I really prefer working with fimo classic over fimo soft. Especially for structures and stamping techniques the classic is firmer and holds the details way better than the soft version. The colours are different thought but still using so many layers of acrylic colours and metal paints there is not much left of the original colours anymore ^^

  2. Rich and wonderful! Amazing complexity of texture - you must have spent hours on each box. No oven? what is the cooking arrangement?
