I received some beautiful gifts from 2 wonderful ladies out there in the miniature blog world that I am proud to call friends:
Sophia was kind enough to help me order some craft items from the US and super sweet to include some gifts she thought I might find helpful for my Christmas projects:
Genevieve's hands of gold, a beautifully made cushion that has found a new home:
And now some update on my experiments in adding scent to polymer clay... Overall I must say that they were successful! I wish you could smell them too! I have made some notes though that one should take into account if he decides to give it a try:
1) I used oil based scents so that they can blend with the polymer clay.
2) They blend really well, but the clay becomes very soft and sticky so you need to be very careful...
3) The sent is very strong at first, but after baking the clay it weakens to about 70% to its original scent.
4) After varnishing the clay the scent is still there, but yet less strong...
Overall it's a nice twist to classic polymer clay miniature items!
I wish you could smell my strawberry cheesecake! It is vanilla scented...
