Yesterday I went for a walk in Carlton and saw a new bike path. I love the shininess when they are new, and there is an excess of the glass that gets washed away. I picked some up and put them in the coin pocket of my jeans.
Step 2: Ingredients
- large paperclip
- round pliers
- straight pliers
- glass from the bike path
- Fimo polyclay
- badge backin
- razor blade
Step 3: Stamp
I used the pliers to shape the paper clip into a circle and a long and short straight line.
Using the paperclip and the photo from the bike path I made a picture of a bike.
Then I used the razor to shape the polyclay into a circle.
Step 5: Fill
I used the tweezers and toothpicks to place the glass in the shape I had made.
Step 6: Black Outline
I put the black polyclay around the white circle, on the back I used the black to hold the badge back on.
Step 7: Back
I use the toothpick to mark a message to the giftee, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVID 2018
Step 8: Finished Badge
I was a bit worried that the colour would not last in the oven when the polyclay was baked - but it was fine.
