ok...here are my thoughts on this little fountain...
I picked it up at a thrift store yesterday for only $4.94
I have been "dreaming" of making a little fairy garden in one of those very deep-dished concrete birdbaths...with a mini fountain!
I was thinking that I could put this in the deep basin, cover the bottom part of it, by basically buring it in soil(screen and tiny rocks over the part where the water has to circulate),and plant tiny plantings around it.
I love that troll! Post more pics. of your Trolls!
Reminds me, did any of you have Kiddles as a kid? I love them and have a couple of my old ones and a "new" one I got on ebay of my favorite, since my old one looked bad. They are now in a shadow box with me as a child holding one of them. Sorry, that was off of the subject.
I have a lot of fun with the polymer clay...it has taken a lot of practice but I am learning...slowly..
Can't afford the little things I would like for my fairie gardens so didn't have much choice but to make my own. Started out doing a few little gardens for our Church Garden Sales and making little decorative pieces to go in them...it just turned into an addiction from there...I just really like working with clay.
ok, I've passed the fimo a thousand times, and wanted to try it. Is that what you are using? I was tempted to buy it, because I wanted to make some flower pots and stuff for my fairy garden that I can't find, or can't afford :0)
Is fimo the right stuff, or can you point me to the brand you are using? Do you just mold it and let it dry, or bake it?
Fimo, premo, Sculpey, Cernit...there are a lot of brands...but that is the stuff! You just make it and bake it. You can sculpt it , or mold it...it does not dry or harden until baked...just Do Not Over Cook It...Be glad to help out in any way we can. I am still learning and always looking for more info and instructions so I started a Polymer Clay Thread in the Pottery and Clay Forum...eventually we are going to get some tutorials and lessons going over there. Some of the ladies there are beginners like us ( even have stuff made by my 8 year old granddaughter) and a few are artists that have made and sold beautiful sculptures world wide...We would be glad to have any of you join us over there any time.
I made the bench, fairy, bird bath, birdhouse, gazing ball, stepping stones etc. in this garden...
My son is getting back from Chicago today...have to go to Seattle to pick him up at the airport...talk to you later.
