It started with an instructable for creating polymer clay bears to decorate jars of honey (Polymer Clay Bear Honey Jar Holder Gifts), and then expanded to even more gifts - Christmas Ornaments and a bookend.  I asked some of my friends for their favorite Superhero and attempted to recreate them. 

List of Bears in this Instructable

Ornament Bear 1: Captain America
Ornament Bear 2: Batman
Ornament Bear 3: Superman
Ornament Bear 4: Wonder Woman
Ornament Bear 5: Hulk
Ornament Bear 6: Mystic
Ornament Bear 7: Spiderman

Created Green Lantern, Flash, and Raven later.


Fimo Polymer Clay - I used white, tan/brown, green, fluorescent (for glow in the dark effect), red, translucent yellow, black and various other colors.  From Joanne's (on sale for $1 each)

clay machine (or rolling pin) - From Joanne's (on sale for $9)

Acrylic paint - very small amount for painting after baking. From Hobby Lobby

Clay tools - I mostly use the one with the tapered ends and the needle point tools.  From Hobby Lobby.

Ball tools - large ones bought from Michaels. Smaller ones are dotting tools used for nails and bought from amazon.

Varthane Polyurethane High Gloss - From Amazon

Wire - to create hanging pins for ornaments.  From Joanne's.  An eye pin would have worked better but I didn't have any on hand.

Im gonna make this for my wife and save it to give to her for when she is mad at me..thanks!!!
