Hands, hands, hands...

Y from Ink Spiller's Attic posted this tutorial on some hands she made from polymer clay and wire. She mentioned though that she thought the wires might break as they seemed really fragile. So I got the idea of wrapping the wire around itself. I used a 20 G wire and it makes a really stiff finger. I'd like to try it again with maybe a 22 or 24 G wire, because I found this a little tiring after all that wrapping. Those are the ones with pink finger tips. The other pair, I just used the wire but I put beads on the wire. It turned out really cute and it allows me to use up my "bead soup."

I love your wee hands! I can see these being something I will have to play with. I suppose this means I will have to invest in some polymer AND another toaster oven (after having gotten rid of both a couple of years ago because I couldn't find a use for either...duh!!).

I love this idea J. I will try this one for sure. I think it will work well for dolls and be strong.

MA I have done that before too. The one I am regretting right now is a beading book I had for years and finally got rid of and now I want it!
Sigh...
