    Yes, the bits fit's perfectly..on my finger xD
    I added a curbchain to it now..one thatgoes from the rein, through the rein-ring, up at the cheek piece/curb ring, under the chin and then out again the same way.. and it works! XD If I put it on my finger I can feel the curb effect..:P perfect for a fantasy bit.. x) I'll show it later..:P

    Vidaloco: well, I hope that'll be fun, at least :)

    Gah! I've nver been good at waiting! :P Here's a new pic of the bit, with chain..I've even made small rings in the end to fasten the leather-reins in.. :o

    (the dragon is bought in a store.. and a little too small for the bit, but wth :P)



    I think I'll go carve some clay tools now..

    Gimme my clay! I hate waiting xD

    Maybe I'll make a harness while I'm at it..O__o

    (I've actually never done anything like this before.. well, when I was like.. 6-7 years old I tied bridles to my ''My Little Ponys'' out of yarn. Does that count? XD)

    Sculpey is one of the best polymer clays you can get. I have an 8 pound box that I got for Christmas 4 years ago (or maybe even longer) and I still have a bit less than half of it. It's great but before it is baked it will ruin finished wood, damage plastic and leave oil-stains on paper if it is in direct contact for too long, once it is baked though it's fine.

    Also if you ordered original sculpey or super sculpey you might find it a little soft, it's annoyingly soft for using tools on and tends to squish at the lightest touch (it will be less so if you put your project in the fridge/freezer before using tools on it).

    Best of luck, hope it arrives soon!

    I've ordered both super sculpey and regular sculpey as I had to get the price up to a certain amount to be able to order :)

    I've never used anything but play doh and regular clay (a few times) so I'm sure this will be better than anything I've tried anyways :)

    Ooooh, looks like it's going to be awesome -- can't wait for more pictures!

    Can I suggest wrapping wire around the legs, though? It will hold the clay better and make it a bit less likely to fall off.

    Dude, tiny bit for awesome. That is so adorable!

    That's a good idea :) I'll see if my thin wire is thin enough..
