Heart of Gold... and Blue and Silver and White...

Here's a very simple Valentines set made using STAEDTLER push molds and STAEDTLER Fimo Effect clay. These are a mixture of Fimo Effect translucent and metallic gold swirled together to make a marbled effect. I used the push molds to make each halves of the heart beads, then I joined them together before baking and curing the pieces. 

I sanded the heart beads after they were hardened to make them super smooth.

I also made some super simple beads. Just balls of clay with holes. 

I made swirly beads by turning a worm of clay around a toothpick and baking it. 

I think I like the cool icy colours a bit more.

Hope you're having a cozy weekend in. 
We're getting hit again with another frosty dumping of the white stuff.
A good opportunity to play with my clay.

They were a very simple and fast project too! I think push molds are really great stress relievers, and the marbled clay was fun too.
