Latest news and updates from June

spot the fakes!

Sorry for the blog silence – I’ve been busy designing! I have 3 projects currently in the works… more on that soon. For now, to help pass the time, here’s a little game for you:

Four of these stones are beach rocks from Lake Ontario. The other seven are my polymer clay faux granite rocks. Can you tell the genuine articles from the Fimo replicas?

Just a bit of fun for a Tuesday morning!

Normal programming will resume shortly…


  1. Those are great! I’ve studied them long and hard and cannot tell. Great overall look and finish.

    Thank you ladies! If you can’t tell the difference, that’s the biggest compliment I could ask for 🙂

    It looks like nobody is going to put their guess on record here, so for anyone who is interested, the ‘real’ rocks are (as numbered from left) 1, 3, 7 and 10. All the others are FIMO.

    I walk along lake Huron every morning, all summer & pick up the rocks I find interesting to bring home, I can’t tell which ones aren’t real.
