Star Staff (Posted 24th October 2011)

I'm sorry I'm not one to take progress pictures, but at the beginning I started off drawing out a stencil for the star head and used it to cut onto the fimo. Next (obviously) I cooked the pieces until they were solid and touched them up with paint. Afterwards I realised I forgot to make slots in the pieces to make the head would hold together tightly, so I had a tough time cutting them out lol. When my hot glue gun arrived, I finally glued the pieces together (I had to re-do a few areas since they were on the rough side).
