Make over!

When I cook, I have my favorite tools... and one of them broke few month ago after serving me for 2 decades! But I loved it so much that I didn't want to through it away! I decided to give it a make over!

Here it is :

Old and broken!






I grab some polymer clay, my pasta machine and made a new handle!...

 First I cut the nails that was holding the left over handle!

 Then I worked half a Fimo block plus some brown left over to give it a bit of color
 I rolled and twisted...
 Measured the length I need with the old handle
and at the same time gave it a flat surface on each side
 and cut...
 Then I made on opening
 and insert the metal part.
 Now working on the side to smooth the cut.

And baked it in the oven (230F) for 30 to 45min

Once it cool down I found something to make it stand and varnished it!



And I am pretty happy of my make over!!
Love my new peeler!



 Not too bad for someone who is not an expert in polymer clay!!...
