Bottle Top Cakes

Remember the molds I made from the bottom of plastic bottles (click HERE)? Well, why not the lids? The little cakes in the back row are finished, but I am still working on the rest. This is air dry polymer clay applied over various plastic lids. When fully hardened, I decorated some with hand sculpted air dry polymer clay roses and leaves and some with dimensional paint. I remembered that I had done a demonstration on various brands of air dry polymer clay and dug these out. OK, two more areas (maybe 3) of a plastic bottle to experiment with. The hubby keeps walking by me, shaking his head, saying, "Stop already".

These are adorable, and smaller than I first thought. I'm giggling at your husband and can just imagine the scene. You are like the energizer bunny who just keeps going and going and going. Since your imagination knows no bounds, that's a wonderful thing! I bet your husband secretly enjoys all of it, in spite of shaking his head. ;)

Thank you ladies. Yes, I should have placed a penny next to one of the caps. Didn't think of it, but I will next time. Barbara, you are so right. The joke around here is that "I let him live in my studio", because hard as he tries to keep my creative endeavors within the walls of the studio, it's all over (including the car. Poor man.

Marlene I absolutely love these pieces! I cringe everytime I have to toss caps from soda & water bottles. What a wonderful way to recycle the caps into creative works of art. Thanks for sharing.

Many thanks. I'm jealous of both Marie and Lupe as they are going on polymer retreats; Marie to San Diego and Lupe to Prescott. Have fun and can't wait to see what you have made!
