Hang on to your jingle bells, it’s the ABS Ornament Blog Hop! Here’s my polymer clay hollow puff star ornament.
I made two puffed star shapes (along the lines of the hollow doughnut but without the backing), and stuck them together with a piece of wire inside. Then I added a bead and a wrapped loop. I also used gilding wax in various shades of red to highlight the bumps and a coat of gold acrylic paint (wiped off) to fill the gaps.
But wait, there’s more! Get yourself a cup of chai and a mince pie and see all the other lovelies in the hop.
Wishing you peace and happiness.

Your star is wonderful. Will there be a tutorial to teach us how it’s done?
I’ll try, but it may only be ready for next Christmas. The Elves were not impressed when I asked – they tell me they are far too busy at the moment 🙂
Those puffy stars are delightful- love the texture! Great ornaments.

Wow! I’m so impressed by the fact that this is hollow! I just started working with polymer a tiny bit in the past year, such fun. As Monique said, it reminds me of tapestry!
