Just Listed; TV Dinner Earrings
New listing in my Etsy shop!
I was really excited to list these; well, not that I'm not excited to list my other stuff, but these were somehow different. I'm just learning how to work with polymer clay and thought, "what don't I see that I would like to see in the world of fake food", and I thought of TV dinners. I've always liked how they come all compartmentalized in that little tray and how they always seem to taste like plastic. Plus, I have this really cool TV dinner notepad at work that I write some of my memos on. I sat down with a scrap of paper and a pen and sketched out how the earrings were going to look. I molded the clay from there, punched a hole for attaching and baked em. I was kind of surprised at how easy it was to cook compared to flour/salt dough that I've used before. I also learned one thing from making the originals (everything in my shop is made new upon ordering) that Sculpey III sucks! Way too brittle...I had to remake these a couple times because of that. Still fun though!
