Holiday How-to: A Halloween Treat!
Happy Happy Halloween!
We are so excited to share with you some spooktacular news. A few months ago we were approached by Polyform Products which is the maker of Scupley. That is the clay we have been using for over 10 years to make all our beautiful handmade designs. They asked if we would be interested in creating some seasonal how-to projects to be showcased on their official website.
Let's think for a moment....um, YES!
We felt this was a perfect match for Swirly to be able to share with everyone some really neat how-to projects using the product we loved for years. Sharing some new and different projects with everyone other then our handmade ornaments. It's a win for everyone.
So here it is..... Our first how-to project we created to celebrate the spirit of Halloween is this spooktacular haunted house Halloween Shadowbox. Created using black Premo and Sculpey glow in the dark clay.
How fun it would be to create your own version of our little haunted house and add it to your own Halloween collection. Check out the Polyform website for the complete step by step here.
Leave your comments on our blog or on our facebook page and let us know what you think of this project. Is it something you would try?
Here is a few more close up shots of this project.

You can make the whole project or just pieces of it. How cool would your table look with a display of mini glow in the dark pumpkins all around.
Adding a battery operated tea light behind your house so you can admire the details during the day....
and watch it glow at night. It's doesn't get any better than that.
