Week 3: Fairy Doors

Before I packed Chloe off to school she got started on a stack of fairy doors for the shop and show season. Some of them were still left to finish up so I’ll be churning away at those for a bit. Here’s the first few out of the oven!

They’ll get their backs painted out and probably a little antiquing here and there.

I use my own fairy doors in the succulent pots at the shop and out in the flower buckets all summer. I’ve found the clay to be pretty sturdy and I haven’t noticed much in the way of fading or staining. Apart from a little Varathane here and there for shiny bits I don’t coat them although I imagine the outdoor formula would be best if I were clear coating the whole deal.

This is Week 3 of the 2018 Polymer Clay Challenge. If you’re a clayer you should totally join in or at least check out what’s going on.
