Just Finished My First Decoden Project!

I just finished my first decoden project! I think I should've used a fan to blow the toxic silicone fumes away, but at the very least, I used a mask.

My overall experience with it in three words: It. Was. Terrible.

I have experience with piping, and why it was terrible today? A few things:
- I'm used to piping with easy to move solutions. What I used today (caulking) was just too sloppy.
- I wasn't able to get to some pictures for inspiration. (The computer was being blocked when I needed it the most!)

It was so...ew, that I won't put a picture of it up. It just shows how gross the first time can be. I didn't even put any cabochon on it, because that's how terrible it was.

At the very least, I can say I've tried, and I now have experience with it. There's always room for improvement. This experience only motivates me to work harder at making better decoden in the future.


  1. I had no idea what decoden was, so I decided to look it up, and it's SO CUTE! I want to do it now. *w* Aww, I'm sure the next time will be much better, especially now that you have experience. So, I'd love to see your next one~!

  2. It is, isn't it? ;) You should try it! It's fun (when you actually have control, and aren't breathing toxic fumees in =.=')! I'm hoping to do one as soon as I can get my hands on real deco whip cream.

  3. If I ever get the stuff I need, I'll definitely to it. I'll probably do it outside to avoid as much of the fumes as I can. My cell case recently broke (One to many falls), so I'll save it for some decoden in the future. :'D
