Let's Get Started

You and I going to raise the bar for geocaching swag, without spending a lot of money. I know the journey is supposed to be the reward, but come on. If you want McToys buy a meal. Hunt micros if you need no tangible reward. I want treasure.
Now let's make some.

Polymer Clay Geocoin

Go big or go home. Polymer clay geocoins are well documented here and here. My short attention span version is as follows: I rolled Super Sculpey between two paint sticks and cut circles with a 3” diameter peanut butter lid. Then I raided our Stampin’ Up stash and made my name with an alphanumeric punch set (taped together). Next was fifteen minutes in the oven at 275° followed by Testors copper enamel paint. Voila!

I think I'd really like to do this. Seems like it would be a lot of fun to do and give a real personal touch to a sig item. Were you happy with how yours came out? And were they really sturdy?

No destructive testing has been conducted yet but it seems sturdier than a wooden nickel. Next I'm going to try two-tone paint. Show us what you make here:

This is a great idea - u could alos take the # from a newly purchased TB and put it on ur homemade coin. 5$ is cheaper that 15 or 20!
