    1. Hi Esther, thanks for your nice comments and for asking. I´ve been using Sculpey Clay to make small embellishments like buttons, and in scale 1:12 fruits,vegetables, breads, foods and so on for making interior to doll houses. Using the clay with blings in Steampunk Apothecary style and to built it into the Tim Holtz grungeboard Pocket Watch was a whole new experience to me. Using metal (gears) together with clay was also a new way for me. It was fun to make this piece, and I´ll create new things in the Apothecary style in the future.

    2. Thanks for your reply, I always enjoy hearing about the techniques other people are finding - always new things to learn ! You definitely should do more in this style it looks great..x
