Posted by Minnie_TX (My Page) on

What do you think? I dropped my glasses today and one of the lenses fell out. It's ok I snapped it back. But I think I have lenses from an old pair of reading glasses and half of the frame. Would it be possible to make frames with the clay?

Sounds like a great idea!
I'd love to know how it turns out if you do try. I would think you would have to use wire to initally make the frame then cover with clay. Maybe you could get the nose pieces and side hinges from a pair of sunglasses. If it were me Id try it out as inexpensively as I could first, just to see if it would work. Plese post back and let us know!
