Faux Cinnabar

Don't you just love cinnabar?  That toxic mercury laden gorgeous stuff?  Well, thank God for polymer clay and it's ability to mimic just about anything.  I have been messing with faux cinnabar.  Here are some pictures of things I made.  Rats, I have another cool focal but I don't seem to have a picture.  Sigh.....  I guess I better go take one as all the cinnabar stuff is going into my shops for sale.  Well, not the pen.  That's going to Russell.  :D

The pen is for my good pal in Buffalo.  I'm overjoyed at how it came out.  And thrilled with the beads, too!  What do you think?  And isn't this fat "cigar" pen JUST the thing for men?  I love it!

Your cinnabar is just terrific!!! It looks like carved REAL cinnabar. The pen is exceptionally gorgeous. Sy just happened by and I showed all of it to him and he said, "WOW, she's good!"
Yup, the man has good TASTE.
