    I’ve incorporated these pinecones and leaves into some recent polymer projects, sprayed with Minwax, they turn out beautifully!

    Sounds lovely Bev. Great way to incorporate organics into your jewelry!

    Cindy I am constantly looking for things whenever I am out and about. Did I mention I carry a little container of play doh with me “just in case”. You are so fortunate where you live as you not only have the land but also the “little treasures” the bay brings in.
    When I lived by Lake Superior it was always a fun trip to scour the area for things of nature. One of the many things I so miss after moving to the Midwest.

    That sounds cool Dixie Ann! How are you using the PlayDoh? For making molds and texture sheets? Or something else? And how does it hold up? I have always found PlayDoh to be kind of fragile when dried.

  5. Dixie Ann, 28 October, 2014

    Playdoh is fragile but I found if I want to make a mold of something that is not available to me or fasten down I can pop out my little container and use the playdoh for a temporary solution keeping it in the container until I get home and can make a permanent mold from it. Once it dries, I just throw it away and use another container. I have gotten some nice molds and texture that way. Right now I am looking for leaf, seeds, nuts, etc; so I can incorporate it into a design sheet. You never know what you can find when your out and about, even walking through a parking lot!
