Alas, my local JoAnn had no such crystals. They do look nice!
Mine did...unfortunately not on sale. But I got two, about sixteen rocks. My plan slightly different than Pacarats. At $2 each I don't want to tie them to one DwF piece. I'll use blu tac to place them on specific sets as needed. And I'll steal your plan to 'set' each piece in Sculpy to hide the angles. Pacarat, thanks for the idea!!

They are looking fabulous already - cracking idea :)
Fab idea, Pacarat. I"m off to Joann right now anyway to get trees at 60% off (they are really just wreath décor) so I'll look.

Playing around with crystals

Looking to do some custom pieces that will include these dark blue crystals. Photos here just see what they’d look like up against my cavern paint jobs.

Pieces are died/painted/stained crystals rocks thingies from Joann Fabric - off their bead wall. They were 3/$10 over Black Friday weekend, with about 7 or 8 pieces on each string.

I touched up some of the edges and sides with a combo of GW blue contrast paint and a tiny bit of wash. They had gotten a bit banged up in production/transit.

Plan is to embed a couple three or four into some sculpy, then carve my own “deposit laden” walls. I’ll make the shapes conform to curves, nooks and crannies, and to hide the flat edges.
