Miniatures From Clay

Testing Micas on Fimo

As you can tell, these are mini bowls made of copper-colored Fimo, and the middle picture shows what the plain clay looks like. I tried Pearl-Ex and Perfect Pearls and metallic eye shadow, and you can see all give similar effects. Because the clay is a dark copper, the effect of all is that of old copper. To get a lighter, newer, effect I'd need to use a lighter color of clay.

The eye shadow is from the dollar store and it and all of these are covered with Future so that the mica won't rub off.
