FIMO Metallic Gold is gorgeous 😍
« on: March 25, 2017, 10:28:41 AM »
I decided I wanted to spend my New Zealand $2 coin instead of keep it for scale reference in photos. But I still wanted to use it. So I a made a mold and bought a pack of metallic gold purely to make a faux coin. I'm halfway through sanding it then I'll give it a thin gloss glaze, but it's absolutely gorgeous already.

Note: The camera doesn't do it nearly enough justice.

Good idea!  The mica clays are gorgeous  8)  You'll be able to put your real coin towards some more!

Yes it is gorgeous. I got some Cernit shiny, the colours seem weird but the effects are wonderful because it shifts brilliantly.

mica clays are such fun. I am a bit mica-challenged, but in the hands of others, they are magnificent as this cool coin shows! Nice job Pamela!

And yes, the Cernit shiny colours are odd aren't they .But I love them - just don't judge them on their pre-baked colour, they look very different out of the oven. I thought at the time when they came out, the darker colours in the range were pretty brave move on Cernit's part. Over the years I have seen all the clay manufactures shy away in terror at darker, more "mature" colours in favour of light and bright "fashion" shades. So I thought it was really nice that Cernit had this range of deeper, brooding mica colours
