It's day 11 of Smeared and Smudged Forum's 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop!  This has been so much fun, hopping and commenting AND I thank everyone for the awesome comments you've give me! 
 
Hubby and I have a deal for the month of October - We don't go out to eat unless it has something to do with Halloween. It's a good plan, we've both lost weight already! The first Halloween food trip was to Krispy Kreme for doughnuts! Oh how I love Halloween doughnuts! Anyway, here's a quick project made with polymer clay and Halloween love! Materials: Polymer clay - orange and a mix of white, gold, brown, yellow and orange to make the "dough" (I use this for cookie dough, too. Glossy sealer Micro beads in green, purple and copper Needle tool or tooth pick Crochet needle or other smoothing tool
Start by conditioning the clay.Roll it in your hands until it's easy to shape. Flatten slightly.  
Use your smoothing tool to to make holes and roll it around in there to make the hole a size you like.
Roll balls of the orange clay and flatten as much as you can and keep it as round as possible.Use the crochet needle to push through the "icing" to reestablish the hole.
Use your needle tool or tooth pick to make holes through both sides.Bake clay according to the directions.
When the beads are cool, brush glossy sealer on the icing and sprinkle micro beads on the wet sealer.
