Love this one too! Thanks Jake, I checked out your Etsy Store, you have beautiful pieces. Have you ever done anything with shells? I am in Southern CA, Seascape is a very popular decor theme. I think the air fern would look nice on a shell but I am not sure that a shell could be put into the oven. Thanks again. Debra

Hi Debra,

Thanks for your comment. I have been thinking about an air plant holder with a seashell. But I don't really have any sizeable shells at the moment to try it with. I have however done sculptures with seashells and baked them without issue. Attached to this comment, are two that I did. Since I have not yet done a video on sculpting polymer clay on a seashell, you might want to watch a video of mine that shows how to seal a rock before sculpting on top of it. The principal of sealing the shell before sculpting polymer clay on top of it is the same as it is with a rock. Below is a link to one of my other Instructables that shows how to seal a rock or seashell. Thanks again for your comment. - Jacob
