Polymer Clay Poké Balls

I’m not a fan of Pokémon, but I made little poké balls out of polymer clay as a birthday present for my ‘brother’ (he’s not related to me, but I think of him as my brother, if that makes sense.)

They were relatively easy to make, I just rolled balls of polymer clay, baked and painted them. Painting them was a bit difficult because they are so small, but I blu-tacked them (blu-tacked is totally a word) to corks while I was painting them, so that I could paint them without getting fingerprints on them. After painting, I varnished them, so the paint won’t come off. Then I put them in a little jar, which I think is adorable.

I painted them to look like different poké balls. Don’t ask me what any of these poké balls mean or do, because I have no idea. I picked them because they were pretty and all looked different, so, if you like Pokémon, they should be relatively easy to distinguish from other poké balls, possibly. If you do know what all them are, please comment with their names, just so future people know what they are.

I swear I didn’t make them rainbow colours on purpose, I just tried to make sure they all were quite different, and I subconsciously kind of chose one of each colour (the green is a bit of a stretch, the orange is actually red, and there’s two blues instead of two purples, but close enough.) Apparently my brain just works in rainbows, and I’m not sure if that’s a good or a bad thing.

Fun fact: I used to play Pokémon, but I only kept the cute ones. One time I could’ve caught a shiny Zubat, but it wasn’t cute, so I didn’t, and I think my brother still hasn’t forgiven me. This is one of the reasons why I don’t play video games.
