    @addison blackmon Hi! Please don’t use nail polish with Fimo/Polymer Clay
    because it may react with the clay and become sticky. Fimo also sell
    varnishes designed to be used with their own pieces and those work very
    well. They should definitely be glazed after baking, and after the piece is
    completely cool to touch. Nail polish only works with air-dry clay, which
    doesn’t need baking.

    @Sara Pie Thank you! I use the ones which happen to fit with the project
    I’m making…for instance I always use the cut-off bottle cup when
    painting, and I use hairspray when dusting glitter or gold dust onto
    macarons. I don’t use the felting glove because it doesn’t look good on
    camera and I have to film all of my felting tutorials :).

    @Alpaca Craft Yes, that one is very easy, roll the wool together and keep
    poking from all sides until it becomes a ball. It’s important to keep
    turning as you work so all the sides gets felted evenly. The mouth was made
    from tiny bits of orange felt, just poke it until attached. The “outline”
    around the edge of the mouth was made with the needle tip, it happens
    automatically if you repeatedly poke the edge where two colours meet.
