My first real work in Sculpy(other than pens that weren't supposed to melt in the oven but did), thought up after I was trying to figure out a unique way of asking my love of four years to marry me (and I sure as heck wasn't going to sew more of these critters again!). It took me two weeks on and off for the first one (the green one) and about two days for the purple one (I needed to get them done before June 20th). The cards read : 'Love, will you marry me?' 'EEEEK!*RUNSAWAY!*' 'Will you kill me if I say no?' 'I love you but I need to think about it, can I take a rain check?' 'Hey,I was going to ask you!', and 'YES'. First he said ' Hey,I was going to ask you!' Then YES' :) He said later: 'It was like the tombstone epitaph: 'I expected this but not quite yet.' '

So cute! For your first time doing anything with Sculpey, you did a great job! And what an original and romantic idea! And CONGRATULATIONS! Awwwww.

And... You melted pens in an oven??? Uh, why, may I ask?

2 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note11'm replying to the last part first: I was trying to make Sculpy covered pens because you can make really neat designs to cover them, and I thought it would be a cool present for my folks. The books said, "Only use this type of pen because others will melt." I guess I had the toaster oven a bit too hot or left them in a bit long because they are sad melted creations now. <2 Thank you for the congrats! I am thinking I'll use them for the cake topper.2"

Wow, what a cool pair of sculptures! Very well done and cute!

1 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: Thank you, I worked very hard on them! 2"

Woah that is a really neat idea. Cool sculptures. I like how you put the ring on their tails.

18 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: *bows* I was going to make them out of fabric at first, but I have done that three times before and it take a bit of time. It was fun to work with the sculpy, even though I hated to wear the gloves (to keep my fingerprints off the clay and to keep the clay off my hands). "

First of all: AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! That is sooooo sweet! Congrats!

Second: Those things are georgous! You're really talented...good luck with the making of the others, are they gonna be replicas or slightly different colors to signify the difference?

13 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: Thank you! The others will be different colors, and I'll probably have them wear some clothes. That way I can save myself the time of impressing each of those scales into the clay. 2 "

That's really cool. we have the same name, why can't we have the same talents? heh. but, that's so original and romantic...i love romance *starts planning creative wedding proposal to man that doesn't exist*

7 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: I am sure there are other people who have our name that we both would like to have the talents of. 2 And the guy probably does exist, you just haven't met him yet...Or he isn't born yet...Or you might meet him tomorrow.Thank you for the comment! <2"

That adds a whole new spin on proposing to someone 2 Please don't tell me you ask people out for coffee in the same fashion. 2 How did you write on those boards that they're holding? I've tried painting white text and it doesn't look anywhere near as good as that. Overall those are wonderful creations and I'm very glad that this was a success story for you 2

7 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: *laughs* No coffee for me please, unless it is the ice cream version. 2 I used a silver gel pen, they are pretty handy for things like this, sometimes they are a bit balky though, "Write, durn you, write!""

Hey there. would you be interested in doing a set for a friend's wedding? What would you charge? PLEASE email me.

16 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: Oops, sorry for the late reply! >_< Hopefully this wedding is more than a year off so a month late is OK? <2 *bites lip* on the one hand I am kind of torn about doing another set, on the other hand it would give me a reason to finish some more dragonsies (and sculptures). Before anything else, when would you need these by? Thanks! 2"

awww so cute ^^ what a great idea! and you pulled if off so well, I love the rings on the tails

oh yeah: about those they're-not-supposed-to-melt pens...they don't melt if you shorten your baking time...usually a max of 10 minutes but since the clay you coat them with is usually pretty thin they tend to bake all the way through that fast anyway....(and always take out the ink...don't be an idiot like me and forget the first time...you know baked ink stains toaster ovens?)

14 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: *bows with a florish* Thanks! Pens11 guess I baked them too long then! Now I have misshapen things, that are cool looking, but what can I do with them? I did take the ink out before I baked them, so no baked on ink stains for me. 1"

Amazing. Clay is so hard to work with. (And it's a very sweet idea.)

1 Jenny M. Heidewald replies: "Jenny's Note: Thank you. 2 I have another project going in clay too, a space girl. She is going to have a mostly purple body suit because that is the clay I was willing to sacrifice the most of. 1 I'm just scared of finishing her and when baking time comes burning or melting her. <2"
