I have been obssesed with Egyptian miniatures since I found out Lilliput's Treasure Egyptian collection.
I wanted to craft an Egyptian tablet myself, just for the fun of it. But I wanted it to have a 3D effect, instead of just doing a base with polymer clay and adding an picture on top. Well, lo and behold, I found by chance a wonderful shop where they sell textured rolling pins with all kinds of engravings. And to my surprise, they had an Egyptian roll too!
I could not believe my lucky stars, and I was quick in acquiring one. I also got some Fimo in a soft beige color (the packet is called Sahara). And today I got the time to use the roll for the first time, and the results are marvelous:
I am very excited about the possibilites. I have not yet made the miniature tablet. I am so happy how these two samples came out that I am turning them into magnets to gift to my classmates at the belly dancing academy. I only need seven more, lol! My mom says she wants one too. I'll post pictures when they are finished.
