Thimble Art - Materials and Equipment

Blank thimbles can be bought on the Internet and I suspect at several craft stores as well. Those can be used for painting on images, or for being enhance with glued on trinkets.

You can also make the thimbles yourself with either Polymer clay or another type which either hardens by itself or has to be baked. In case you rather like working with wood or metal, you can fabricate thimbles from those materials without any problems and even leather will work fine.

I didn't find any instruction books on thimble art, but for those of you interested in collecting thimbles, this book on the history of this item may be a good read.

There are some instruction on the Internet pertaining to making jewelry with thimbles and you may be able to find some help when using clay. For anything else, you are pretty much on your own.

That shouldn't be much of a problem though; it also means you are open to any creative idea your mind comes up with!
