Mini Snow globe - Caterpie by Swadloon Mini Snow globe - Caterpie by Swadloon
- :bulletgreen: FAQ :bulletgreen: - :bulletgreen: Commission Info :bulletgreen: -


More Mini snow globe :'D This is a commissioned piece. Took about 4 hours to put together but I am quite happy how this turns out. I was so glad that someone asked for a Caterpie, one of my favorite bugs here definitely!

The glass sphere measures roughly 3cm tall with a 2cm opening and is bought online. (From taobao so only if you live in China, if you are in China and wants to know the link just let me know). Everything else was sculpted with polymer clay, including the fake snow (which doesn't really show in the photo but I failed to photo it in motion Dx ). Liquid used to fill the globe is distilled water (+ some glue to give it slight viscosity). A piece of ribbion was applied to cover the connecting area where hot glue was applied.

That is too cute :aww: Could you please make a tutorial how to make snow ball? Or at least share some tips here in comment? I would be very grateful, because I want to make snow globe as a Christmas gift for my uncle and aunt. That glass you use, what was it to begin with?
You know that you can mix distilled water with Glycerol (you can buy it in drug store, it's cheap) :)

So amazing as always ;w; I wish I could find globs like that, but I've searched everywhere and I can't ;w;

Thank you :3

The globe actually was originally for making rings, so hence their small size, but I just found the shape perfect for mini snow globes XD I had to order in bulk though, I wish I could help but it's unlikely I will be ordering anymore of these :x

Thanks!

I actually had problem finding the right materials and this is already the "best" size I can find so that's why they are so small ;u;
