29th June 2015: Rod Well, I finally finished my rod for Estelle today! It's a bit ...amatuer if I'm honest haha
I made the rod part from a pvc pipe and pipe ends from b&q (so cheap), built it up with foam and milliput and painted it with enamel paint (designed for walls and plant pots and drains and stuff like that). The tip is transpaArt, which is SO DIFFICULT oh my god.
I made a mold from modelling clay (and wrapped it in clingfilm to stop any stray clay getting on the tA), then heated the two halves around the mold. I used acrylic craft paint to colour it, then reheated the pieces and evo-stick'd them together. Sadly the heat seems to have cracked and discoloured the paint a little, and my attempts to repaint it didn't really work...
The top is removable, as there is a flexitorch inside to provide the glow!
I'm really not that happy with the result as I just could not get the milliput to sand smooth, but the glow effect is pretty funky c:

11th June 2015: Blastia Another adventure into the world of Worbla, and I think this was a bit too far out of my skill range!
I made it out of craft foam in 3 parts: the bracelet, the gem piece and the 'heart', then covered them in worbla, using its adhesiveness to stick the parts together. As the bracelet only connects to the gem at the four 'points', I added a strip of TranspaArt to the back as an extra support.
The gem is polymer clay (Fimo Translucent Effect), blended with embossing powder and glitter. It's super sparkly!
It's ended up a little narrower than in some of the references, as my sparrow wrists looked a bit ridiculous with such a thick bracelet!
11th June 2015: Hair clasp First little job complete!
I made this out of craft foam and worbla, and made two little 'pearls' from polymer clay.
I used white and gold model paint for the design, then went around it with gold enamel paint. It's been neatened up and evened out since this photo, and I've attached a hair clip to it as well c:
