These 3 plaques are made out of Fimo I varigated to look like colors of the ocean. On the largest one, I put my last seahorse. It's a little less than an 1" and my very favorite "shell" The next one is the smallest sand dollar I have left.and is about 5/8" long. On the last plaque is a snail, sponge, a cone type shell and a starfish. The starfish is 1/4" wide and I have never found any other quite as small.
Next, a picture is of my real sponge that I bought off of a sponge fisherman from Tarpon Springs (Florida).
My sponge in miniature.
These last two pictures are from some previous posts showing how many minis I was able to make ( Please see post about "Matty's Blue Seas Bistro, 1,2, and 3 )
I hope you've enjoyed this post and maybe have gotten some inspirations on working with shells.
Unfortunately, I am ending this post on a "sour note" It appear that there has been another stolen miniature.
Here is the post from one of my mini groups and I do have permission to post it here.
A teddy bear was stolen from the exhibit Saturday afternoon that was sitting in the white chair next to the front door. The exhibit belongs to Rhona Lee, and needless to say she is heartbroken. The bear was very expensive, and she had been saving him to include in a special project. She does not have a picture of him, so I was hoping one of you had taken a good picture of the exhibit Saturday morning that shows the bear. I would like to post a picture of the bear online and hopefully she will be able to get him back. Rhona doesn't care who did it, she just wants the bear returned. I will post a picture of the bear if I receive one.
Rhona's address is (she gave me permission to give it out):
1455 Welburn Ave
Gilroy, CA 95020
Taken from the Good Sam show October 12,13 in San Jose. Ca. So, this is a plea to the person who took this teddy. Please return it. Just think how good you will feel, when working on your minis, knowing that you did the right thing
Till next time
