Pretty Punchy Polymer Pin!

This is a pin I handmade. It's made from polymer clay, pressed into a mold, cut out, baked,cooled then sanded. Then I choose ink colours for them rebake them and let cool and harden.

Once the ink sets up, I glaze it with enamel paint. Then I add enamel glitter paint and a one final clearcoating of glaze and let air dry overnight.

These are small pins around 1-4 inches usually. This is 1 inch x 1 inch. For the small size they do pack a lot of punch & pop up a sweater or blazer lapel. These are my original designs and each one is just a little different than the last one. There is no recreating a purchased design exactly. I quite like this fact. As I'm something of an original, myself.
