    This is a bass drum ring I designed for my son.

    The ring was printed in silver and then enhanced with FIMO Classic, black polymer clay.

    After baking the ring there was no difference in the size or details of the ring.


    Before Poly Clay was added


    After black, FIMO Classic clay was added

    Great work! :eek:

    I can appreciate the amount of effort that went into getting that polymer clay on there evenly!

    Ditto, to what James said. I've worked with polymer clay a fair bit and that couldn't have been easy. Let us know how it holds up during wear.

    Thanks guys.

    It wasn't easy getting the clay in there but I am very happy with the output.

    I had to set tiny balls of clay in each "section" and then smoothed them with my thumb and fingers.

    This is my second ring that I've added polymer clay to. The first one I created two years ago and the clay still looks great and has no issues.
