My entry for the semi-sweeties Halloween contest.
I wasn't planning on entering the contest because I have only been using Polymer Clay for just over a few months and I am not that confident. Yesterday after comparing my latest polymer clay miniatures with the ones I first made I have decided that I have improved.
So today I came up with an idea randomly. All of it is handmade. It took me an hour to make the basket and not so long to make the apples. The handle was a bit wobbly and looked like it was going to tip over just before I baked it so in case of any accidents I put a post in the miniature to stand it up better which has now been removed. I used apples instead of pumpkins because you don't put pumpkins in baskets, I like apples and I don't have much orange fimo... Apples are associated with Halloween as well as pumpkins. I have never celebrated it so I don't really know. Also I get tired of seeing pumpkins around the time of Halloween so I went for something different.
This entry made it into the top 10 entries for the contest.
