Just finished this polymer clay and glass flask. I'm really pleased with the way it turned out! I took a glass flask and covered it in black and brown Fimo, gave it texture in some areas, then added some creamy glass gems and pieces of chain. I added the swirls and little pebbly bits of clay (it takes forever!) and then it was put in the oven to cure.
After the clay was cured, I put a wash of burnt umber and black acrylic over the surface and wiped it from the raised areas. Then I touched it here and there with metallic paint. It looks like it is covered in tanned leather. My friends say that it looks like a secret potion bottle or that a genie will appear if you rub it.....hmmm....let's give that a try! It is listed for sale in my Etsy shop.
