Star Wars Sunday and another giveaway

Welcome back fellow geeks and today we have another Star Wars project using moulds and this time it's Han Solo encased in carbonite (check on ebay for the mould).

For these, I used liquid Fimo although normal Fimo would work as well. I filled the mould and baked as per the instructions. The liquid Fimo comes out a semi-opaque white, so I added some dark grey paint with a little white to highlight bits. I tried adding some glossy accents to one, but some of the detail was lost so best to avoid that with such a small piece. See, I do these things so you don't have to!

The end result is small enough to make into a pendant which I will give away to one randomly chosen comment made here or on our facebook group during sci-fi month.

By the way, the mould can also be used for chocolate which I also made (don't worry, I have two of these) but the chocolate did not hang around long enough to be photographed!

Anyway, get yourself some moulds and have fun playing with them. Remember we would love to see any of your sci-fi/fantasy/geeky creations and there is a chance to win craft store vouchers if you share your work either on our FB page or you can use this linkup tool

Have a great day and see you soon for more sci-fi madness.
