|The Belt and Buckle!!|
-Brown Leather Belt preferably with smallish, rectangular, western style buckle
-Polymer clay (such as sculpey or fimo)
-Acrylic paint (silver, blue, white, brown, black)
-e6000 (I did NOT use this, but should have)
Making the buckle was easy enough, but securing the buckle was a little problematic. I made the buckle out of polymer clay, sized and shaped to fit over the buckle on the belt. It didn't have to be fancy in the making stages, as all the details were painted on. I used gray poly-clay, but any colour would have worked. I flattened the clay, squared it off and repeated until I had the right shape and size with nice square corners. I also scored the diamond into it to make nice straight lines to paint in later. To attach it (as I naively didn't want to glue the buckle right on and ruin the belt for further use) I inserted wires into the back of the poly-clay, reinforced with more poly-clay, to be able to wire it on. Seemed smart, failed horribly.
