Bag End Polymer Clay Projects

I've been meaning to post these projects here for a while.

Here is a picture of the polymer clay hobbit door I made for fafojoy's birthday. It was inspired by the following pictures:

Although the actual design I used was based somewhat on the interior door of Bag End in the movies.

The following views are of an Altoids candy tin that I covered with polymer clay, with a scene of Bag End on top:

I made the following project based on this You Tube tutorial.

The main differences are that I used my "hobbit door cane" for the door, and I used a wire armature inside the tree, as the branches were too droopy without the wire. I also used a few flower cane slices to decorate the front garden.

It's very small, less than 3" from the bottom of the base to the top of the tree.

This is the second one I made. It's almost twice the size of the first. This time I used slightly different shades of green, and I used some leftover faux wood grain clay blend (the same as I used to make the door in the first picture) to make the trunk and branches of the tree.

I need to make a second try at taking a picture of the last one, as the light was not too good.
