Default How do you make the clay bow centers?

Are they hard to make? Do you use the fimo? Is it expensive? Do you paint them? Do you bake them? Juyst wondering since I have some down time before my shows start in March.

Thanks!

What do you glaze them with and do you have to bake them?? What kind of clay do you use?

Thanks

You can use Sculpey, Fimo or generic polymer clays. Yes, you do have to bake them and it's a good idea to glaze also. You can use a variety of glazes - but you don't HAVE to use them at all, especially if you're just playing around with it. It isn't really expensive - clay is actually really cheap. Buy the starter set at walmart for $10 - as long as you don't mind mixing colors yourself it'll last you long enough to decide whether you want to keep at it.

I have the Sculpey basics I'd be happy to sell them if anyone wants. I tossed the box, but I have the following in a ziploc bag:

Black
Blue
Green
Brown
Orange
Yellow
Red
White
Ivory (about 1/2 gone)
Flesh

$5 plus shipping takes it. Just don't have the time to do it.
