Polymer Clay Owls. They're a hoot! (And flowers, too.)

I just made these little beads the other day.

 The owls I made from a mold. I made the original owl by hand and after it was baked, I made a mold from it so I could make more owls. I hand painted them using PearlEx powdered pigments (on their bodies) and acrylic paint (for the eyes). For the flowers, I just used the PearEx pigments. I coated all of them in a gloss varnish to protect the paint and pigments and give it a sheen. I bought some pretty sparkly beads that will go great with the flowers when I make them into something wearable. These things are so fun to make. I hope to refine them a little more with some practice :)
