Fabulous Fruits!

I wanted to make some shoe decorations for some wedges I've ordered, so a few evenings ago I got out the polymer clay and made some little fruits! After baking them I painted on some shade and highlights, then varnished them.

There are limes, oranges, bananas, cherries, mangoes, grapes, pineapples and peaches.


I love how they came out. I strung them on some thread to keep them safe until it's time to make the shoe clips, and have decided that I need a matching necklace, bracelet and hat to go with them, so more fruit making will ensue! I'll probably do a couple of hats with a little cluster of them to sell on Kalandra Jane Designs too!

  2. Oh my goodness, those are amazing! When I saw the image first I thought it was from a vintage necklace, I would never have guessed they were polymer clay!
