Now onto this weeks' How-To....

This week I will be showing you how to create this Scarf Pin.
I will be using these materials:

Gonis Miralight* (Pliable Clay that is very stable when dry)
Gonis DecoPointer* (Creates dots and can be used to write on projects and surfaces)
Gonidecor* (Universal colour)

Finisher* (Lack to complete the project making it water resistant)

I use Gonis because I love the products, they have an amazing quality which I have yet to find anywhere else.
If you cannot get your hands on these products you will need to find similar substitutes. 
*If you would like to know more about Gonis please contact me.

First using the Miralight, take a small portion and create a roundish form and a stick form :)

Inside my "Pin" I inserted a piece of a kebab stick to give it a bit more stability.

Once formed, allow to dry, preferably over night.
Now paint your pieces. I added an extra piece as I wanted to have the option to change the colour of the pin.

Allow to dry and then embellish with the DekoPointer.
Once this step is dry, varnish and allow to dry.

And there you have it:

Now it is your turn!

  1. Thank you so much for featuring my Pot Stands! and thanks for hosting again today :-)

    1. Hi Linda,
      My pleasure :) Thanks for linking up.

  2. I like this pin idea! Do you buy your Gonis products on-line?

    1. Hi Emma,
      I am a distributor of the products, so I sell them myself :). If you are interested in purchasing the products, perhaps visit their website. As far as I know Gonis is also now available in the French part of Switzerland. If you don't come right let me know and I will help you :)
      Thanks for visiting.
