Amazing - can I ask - do you make the bangle/bracelet or do you buy a cheap wood or plastic one (that doesn't melt) and lay the clay over it?

Z nieba mi spadłaś! ŚWIETNE są *q* !!! Jeśli mogę to mam pytanie; jak uzyskałaś taką "kropkowaną" nawierzchnię na bransoletce i metalową na napisie? :D

These look amazing! Absolutely love all the textures and the small details.
However, I must ask you; what colors do you use to paint these? Last time I heard fimo-clay is pretty difficult to paint, and it wont really stick. So are you using any special colors? :)

Thank you so much! I used black and transculent silver acrylic paint. I covered them with varnish and I don't think there is any problem even though the bracelets, and all the items someone wears on the wrists/hands are especially prone to get bumped around and damaged. The paint is used only to make black stains on the back and silver scratches, all the other colors are precolored clay, so there is actually very little paint on my items :). Hope it helps! *hugs*

Those are fairly boring to make though :D. It just takes lost of time, painting the bracelets, conditioning the clay, getting rid of FREAKING BUBBLES, making patterns, repainting the bracelets, baking, laquering, and so on. The best part is making scratches and painting the details on the finished bangles XD.

I don't care how boring it is, I'm really curious HOW is it made. I assume you are using basic wooden bracelets and then put the modeling clay on. But how does it stick? Do you harden the modeling clay in an oven and if yes than why nothing happens with the wood? How come you are not leaving any finger prints? How do you make all the shapes and edges so clear and sharp? SO MANY QUESTIONS!!

Let's see :D. Yes, I use wooden bracelets but I am painting them with acrylics first so clay is sticking thanks to that :D. I bake them in the oven and right after the wood is slightly shrunken, so I take the hot bracelet, wrap it in a paper towel not to burn my hands and I sqeeeeeeze it and sqeeeeeze it intil it's cold, so the clay would be as close to the wood as possible. I paint the insides last so if there are slight cracks just at the line of where clay is sticking to the wood, I can fill it up with paint ^^. Then I smooth it all out, paint the whole thing with varnish and done :D.
And fingerprints are more difficult actually, I try to avoid them and smooth them out as much as I can but it not always works. I use my fingers and a plactic tool for that (the red one here: [link] ) and if I use Fimo soft, I like to let the sheet of clay dry over night on a sheet of paper, it's harder and the fingerprints are less visible that way ^^. For the edges I use scalpel (on the right side of the linked photo) and again it helps if the clay is harder or if you put it in a freezer for a few minutes before cutting.
Ufff :D. Hope it helps! If you have any more questions just ask :D.
