A Light Post

I haven't done much miniature making in the past few days. I did make a few Fimo candles, but that's about it. The wicks are black clay which I roll and bake beforehand, and save in a little jar.
I always work on clean sheets of printer paper when I'm using clay to keep it clean. I used to scrub down my worktable before working with clay, but I could never get it clean enough to keep the clay clean. The paper is much easier, and works much better.

  4. The candles look very real.

    I made polymer clay stems for apples. Which are about the same size as a wick. It worked very nicely but they eventually all broke off. So on the next batch of apples I used wire for the stems and painted it after I baked the clay.
