Well I’ve made it! The first week has passed and I haven’t even missed a day yet and so far all the projects have turned out pretty cool. I have the next few weeks roughly planned out and I can’t wait to start on some the projects, some of them are going to be TASTY!
I also think I’ve come up with a plan regarding my Etsy shop and some of the projects that I’m making. At the end of the month I’ll be selling small “grab bags of the month” featuring a smattering of the projects that I’ve created that month. For instance, in September you could purchase “grab bag” including a set of bookmarks, a cassette book, some wine charms and a few suprise items. I’ll try it out and if it goes well, I’ll keep it up!
Now on to today’s project, Wine Markers! I had a few ideas for this one (a set of Alice in Wonderland themed charms, a ‘Friends’ themed set) but ultimately when it came down to it, I heard “Super Mario Brothers”. Literally, I heard Scott start up the game and it gave me some cool ideas so that’s what I went with, a Super Mario Wine Marker set!
They were quite quick to make, I used my stash of polymer clay and some random wire that was in my “craft bin of mystery”. After some “research” on what the items actually looked like, I sculpted them and then simply baked them for 30 minutes on a low heat! I still have to spray them with a gloss/sealer but here are some pictures, I made a Bomb-omb, a Pipe Pirhana, a Mushroom, and Yoshi’s Egg!
Materials: Polymer Clay, Wire
Time: 1 hour (including baking time)
