Okay so I decided something. I forget if I mentioned this thought before or not about the trouble I've been having finding certain kind of beads/shank back/buttons. I was looking for halloween ones specifically at this time to get a halloween stock going for my etsy.. and everything on eBay and everywhere I look is just TOO BIG. So I got this idea to make my own with a polymer type of clay. So I went off to Jo Anns today (with $5 ..) hoping to find SOMETHING I can work with. And what do you know? They have a Sculpey line called Firefly Bake Shop oven-bake clay.. and it only cost $0.99 for the same amount (57g) as the regular Sculpey! I can honestly say I have no idea what the difference is, but it seems to work the same. I bought white and I already have paints, so I can paint it to be anything I want. This will be good! I just hope this works out to my advantage. If it turns out to be crap well at least I only paid $1 and it's for practice purposes (unless amazingly I get good at it). I'm hoping I do.

I'll see if I can work on something tonight/tomorrow and post the results! I'm going to try to figure out some items laying about I could use for tools, and to actually LOCATE my paints lol. Woo!
