Well. A while back I decided that I would share both my successes and my failures on this blog- and today. I will share one of my failures. :C
Its not a BIG mistake, but it's a mistake big enough that can't be saved. As you can see in the next image I made some new Halloween doughnuts for the 2013 range.
I was SUPER happy with them! They seem a lot more realistic than the ones I made last year... so I decided to start working on some boxes for them! Well... When I went to grab a set to take measurements for my boxes they were all stuck together! As it turns out- the spray sealant I found isn't reacting very well to the polymer clay. It isn't drying! (I sprayed these almost a week and a half ago) Here they are all stuck together.
Honestly, if the only problem about this was that they stick together- I wouldn't mind. But I DO mind all the lint and dust that sticks to them. So... lesson learned! I will no longer use the spray for polymer clay miniatures. :/ What do you use to seal miniatures? I normally just use Sculpey glaze because it has always done what I wanted it to, but I thought a spray would leave a more even layer. Any suggestions?
Thanks for stopping by! I am still working on some fun Fall miniatures (along with dipping my toes into some Christmas minis!). This has been a SUPER busy week. I am taking driving lessons which threw off Tuesday and Wednesday for me... and I also spent a day helping a friend build furniture for her office. But I *should* be free for miniature work for the rest of the week! :)
