Wonder how hard it'd be to make a 2-part mold this way? And whether you could then use it for pewter... Thank you, you've made me think crafty again Happy

can you use resin to fill the mold instead of clay?

That's kind of curious. I bought it some weeks ago in a bead store...

This is a little off topic, but I have the exact same charm.I inherited it from my greatgrandmother and never really knew where it was from or how old it was.What a coincidence, I was googling polymer clay and this popped up!lol
Anyway where'd you get your charm? If you don't mind my askingHappy
Handy tutorial too!I'm sure I'll pit it to use!
