Charms for a swap

I am taking part in a charm swap being run by Julie H from Perth in W.A. whereby I had to make charms to be swapped with 9 other people----and here are my charms.
They are made from paperclay.
I rolled the" Delight " paperclay out to about 1 cm thick and cut them to the size that was specified by Julie approx. 1 inch by one and three quarter inches.
After about an hour I imprinted them with a stamp.
When dry about 24 hours later I painted them with black poster paint --I then wrapped them with wire and painted them again with the black paint.
Then when this was dry I rubbed the black paint off the wire and then rubbed Goldfinger on the charms to make them look metallic.
I hope the people who receive them will be happy.

Love the charms Doreen, also I'm very impressed with your banner for the church. What a wonderful project to be involved with.

Doreen, I'm sure the lucky people that get these charms will be very happy. You are so good at making these little things!

Your charms are wonderful. They appear to be heavy, but knowing about paper clay I know they're very light weight. I like dichotomies such as that ... visually one thing, but physically another.

The banner for your church is amazing. I hope to see photos of the other colored banners with it when they're in use.
