Let's build a


Or two, or three. Or four...



I had this very light modelling clay (Fimo air) at home and finally got to play around with it a little. It's vacuum packed and dries at room temperature, after a couple of hours it's as hard as stone. 


Of course I couldn't resist to make a piece of jewelry, too. It's a genetic predisposition I guess. Too many jewelry designers in my family!



This ring is probably not made to last forever! But it's already 24 hours old, so let's see.

    Hallo Gudy, ja, und es war doch schwerer als ich dachte da irgendwas elegantes hinzukriegen! Aber rustikal ist ja auch ganz schön ;)

    hey you maybe should make small "real houses" with small windows and put some candles behind. I think it would look very cozy in the evening on the windowsill.

    True, Ana - I'll save that project for next winter!

    Great stuff, this air drying clay. I've been wanting to buy some since I saw some Christmas craft projects. Thanks for reminding me. Love the ring! Those house shapes are so on trend :) xx

    Hi Lena!
    I play with ordinary clay and that is also quite fun and relaxing. But not so clean like with modelling clay :) First time here. Nice simple and clear layout you have. I like it.
