When I was going over the vegetables I had made I noticed I didn’t have any mushrooms. WHAT is this madness I say …No Mushrooms and it’s a witches conservatory. Well I certainly had to remedy this. So out came the clay and with inspiration from my dear friend Jane and her wonderful creations, mushrooms were made. These were fun to make and fairly easy to do aside from time to time the clay would get too warm/soft. I think maybe if I work with thinner clay next time maybe I’ll keep a baggie of ice nearby to touch with the tips of my fingers or something to cool the clay a bit. Do any of you have this problem and if so what do you do? I also picked up some black Fimo to make some kettles/cauldrons/pots. This I had even more problems with because I didn’t realize until after I opened the package and started smushing it around its soft Fimo. This really got floppy the thinner the container got, and then after I cooked it I noticed it still had some give. Has anyone used soft Fimo and if so what do you use it for? Today I’m going to hop over to the local craft store cause they have the clay, acrylic paint and foam brushes on sale. The three things I seem to be going through like a wild woman. Have a great day everyone!
