Don't "hedge-itate"! Come see what's all the hub bub, bub.

I am learning all about taking and editing videos. What a headache! Can anyone recommend some good video editing software?

Made with polymer clay over glass. Every teeny tiny detail was created by hand. Whew! This is one of my favorite themes. It reminds me of walks through the woods. :D

Purple and Gold Filigree Ornament by MandarinMoon
Purple and Gold Filigree Ornament
This is polymer clay over a ceramic ornament. I tried to create a slow transition from gold to purple by gradually mixing the two. Not sure if I am happy with the results. Purple and gold make a strange color when blended. o_O

Green Filigree Christmas Ornament
I made this by hand rolling ropes of green polymer clay and placing them on the surface of a ceramic ornament. I love making these but they do take time!

I tried to follow it ;)
It's very well done! For me it was the very first time with Fimo and I've found it quite simple to follow, even though, as you can see, i do not have any experience at all :D

Chris,
I love all your beautiful clay ACEOs :love: and would like to try to make one of my own. Do I need to use an ACEO-sized art card stock to wrap the clay around, or can I use clay alone? Thank you!! :hug:

Thank you very much. :) I just make mine with clay alone. I cut a template from cardstock and use it to cut the right size sheets of clay. Have fun! :D
