Gallery – simple silhouettes

About three months ago, I first started seriously contemplating turning this hobby into a money-earner, I remember telling someone that there was no way I’d be able to create ‘staple’ (or standard/repeat) designs for the Etsy store.

I’m very happy to have been proved wrong!

These silhouettes are simple, elegant and quick, and will lend themselves to a number of different base shapes. In fact, I’m planning to buy myself some round and oval cutters to do precisely that!

Silhouette tiles - set of five. Left to right, top to bottom: Duck, Soaring bird, Swan, Squirrel and Platypus

 Each tile measures about 4cm square, and is made using custom colour blends of Sculpey, with the Sculpey Ultra-Light and translucent swirled through. When baked, this creates a beautiful marbling effect and a very light end result.

The tiles can be made into magnets, brooches, or pendants, or simply left plain.
