|Would you like to join Posie and me for a little stroll in the herb garden this evening?|
I think the herb-markers I made came out pretty cute! I used polymer clay in a nice terra cotta color. I stamped the words with a stamp kit, poked a hole into the bottom, and baked them for about 15 minutes. Oops, I should have put the hole at the top! Then I could have wound the copper wire into a pretty curlycue from the top. Then the disks would swing freely below the wire. But since I didn't do that, I had to use some twigs and wind the wire tightly around them to make them stand upright. But they're still pretty and I do sort of like the rustic twiggy bases. I made about 10 but have many more to make...so there'll be another chance to perfect the system! Some I've seen have been 'stamped' with the herb's leaves. Maybe I'll try that on my next batch.
