How to candlestick made of polymer clay


подвечники своими руками.

Roll out the clay on the thinnest thickness. Cut out the shape of the cup. I do not use a pattern, simply enclose and crop shape.

At the junction of the trimmed excess with a knife and a small needle is rolled skalochkoy. If the surface of debris stuck in the process, it can be removed with wet wipes, they can also smooth out the surface. At this stage it is to get rid of air bubbles between the glass and polymer clay. They are seen in the previous photo. To do this, simply stroking the surface from the center to the edges. If bubbles leave, they will not only be seen from within, while baking the air expands and bulges to polymer clay, if there is no exit.

Then proceed to the texture. Different effects can be achieved using available materials: sand paper, toothbrush, salt. I just push the bamboo stick, it is hard, gives a deep texture, its gaps will be seen even during burning candles:

Then I do the stems. I chose a very simple drawing. Spokes or toothpick is pressed almost to the glass stripes. They, too, will then glow.

Rounded stack doing round “flowers”. To do this, simply click and then slightly twisting to widen the opening.

The sharp end spokes are pressed the point, too, trying to glass. The more holes, the stronger the glow. Figure is limited only by the imagination:

Well that’s all done, you can bake. Bake at the temperature specified on the package, usually 110-130 degrees about half an hour.
In the next photo in the candle. It did not work fully convey how light all patterns, but trust me, it’s very cozy) on the right side glass tinted oil-based paints. The surface after texturing is very good for tinting. Paints can be used acrylic (not everything fits Ladoga, but Decola reacts and begins to stick to the time), even though the oil take longer to dry, but it can be any, like gouache definitely not suitable for tinting of plaster polymer clay. Toning finger almost dry paint can be in multiple layers.

The following photos have fish, it is also made of FIMO. Inside it wrapped normal stone material savings and ease of modeling. The surface is smooth initially was not very suitable for tinting, I rubbed her large sandpaper after baking, stained with oil paint with the addition of linseed oil. Here in this tutorial, I showed more about this kind of painting, I will not repeat.
Do not rush immediately to tone after baking, let cool clay, because immediately after baking it is fragile, especially if there are small details just sticky to the surface, is checked.

And on the other background peeps:
