Teeny Tiny Micro Gnome (polymer clay)

Does anyone remember Ice-Cream Gnome? There he is on the right...and if you look closely, you will see the super-duper tiny gnome to his left. Sitting on top of a toothpick! That was his pre-baked phase...and up close after baking to the far right.

This bottle is only about 1 1/2 inches high. There is dried moss in the bottom for him to sit in. :)

Very close-up shot- I think he looks cozy! :D In making this guy, I used polymer clay and some findings (the necklace, bottle, moss, etc..) to put it all together for a necklace. The cork is glued in so he will not be leaving the bottle any time soon. Also his feet are glued to the bottom anyway, so he'd really have to try hard to make a break for it. ;)

Thanks for viewing and let me know what you think of him!! :D

I love the idea of the candies in the jar, and the mini gnome in a jar with Moss. Super cute! It would take me a lot of practice to get such good detail for something that small! Nice job :)

Thanks!! It was actually not as bad as I thought it would be to make them so small, just takes a little more time to make sure I'm not squishing anything haha :D
