Mice Dressed In A Rainbow

It´s the second time I make this necklace. The first one came to life when I first started working with polymer clay. Now I made my rainbow mice with texture ala Bettina Welker which you can find in her book.

Thank you to dear Marie for her article about this necklace. Check out her blog here.

I loved making this so much. I spent hours texturing and trying to find a way to get the mice as I wanted.

I wish I had a little more luck with the painting. BUT that don´t really mean anything.

It´s the journey, the feeling of creating, seeing it all come together and enjoy it. And not to be concerned about what it all end up with.

Not anyone can take away the joy you´ve had.

I could nearly feel the smell of spring rain, the sun coming out and dry it all up and the nice touch of summer on the way.

Well, if that isn´t the best I don´t know what is.


  1. What's the trouble with painting? They look wonderful to me...The only trouble with painting is that my hands are filthy ALL the time because I will put my hands in it!

  2. Thank you Claire!!
    I don´t think I get the painting even enough. I paint it all and wipe off the excess.

  3. Your mice are lovely! And I am completely with you on the joys of polymer clay - it's the most amazing medium to work with, and I love finding and giving life to the characters that live within a flat block of clay :) I never use paint when making models - I paint with clay instead - there are so many amazing colours and effects you can achieve without needing anything else. Good luck!!

  4. Thank you Quernus!! The items are not painted but in the color of the clay. It´s the texture which is highlighted with paint...
