Good day friends :)
You may have noticed that my site has had a bit of a makeover since you last visited. I just finished this snazzy little design made possible from the use of a digital scrapbooking kit from Shabby Princess. But that's not what this post is about dear friends!
I wanted to share with you a little something I made a week or so ago, I found my inspiration randomly on Etsy. So I took a trip to my local Hobby Lobby (like always) along with my trusty 40% off coupon and bought some Sculpey. Sculpey is a very useful modeling clay. You form it, and then bake it in the oven, no need for a kiln here people!
As you can see below these were my supplies, Sculpey and my diamond glaze, which have I mentioned that I seriously LOVE this stuff?
I took my pics waaayyy after the fact of making this birdy so I have no pre baking pics to show ya'll. But as you can see in the picture below, my birdy ended up super shiny. This my dear friends is why I adore the diamond glaze. My original plan was to mix paint with my glaze to give it more of a glazed (duh..) look, however, me and my toaster oven had issues and apparently Sculpey can "burn". Who knew? He was really only a tiny bit singed, so I just painted with an acrylic paint let that dry and then went over it with the glaze & VIOLA! I have an oven baked clay birdy that looks like he's been fire glazed.
