When I started the tutorial of @diniedezeeuw I knew I wanted to try it out.
What tutorial? This:
For my gnomes, I used a pie plate as a circle.
I didn't have star cutters and instead of a knife I used modeling tools.
Learning point for me:After 36 hours of drying, it was only possible to remove the cardboard already rotating. Previously, it just did not come loose. Also, I should have left the clay thicker, because now that it's so thin, it can break quite easily. One of the three holes (made with a wooden stick) are too small to allow the light to pass through properly. Nevertheless, I am very satisfied with the result. Here you see them with lights on. Torching LED lights to be precise.
