Hello, dear inhabitants of the country! I imagine you have just made a frame for the picture and offer to follow my example)
Naturally, this can be anything, not necessarily frame. Using similar techniques, I made a vase, candle holder, in general, anyone on that imagination will suffice))
So, we need:
Base – flat (!!) wooden frame that can be purchased at any art store or make four small dosochek themselves. My frame size 30×40 light. It will be the basis for a future frame.
Polyurethane Ceiling Moulding – sold in any construction market. Sold individually, each stick is usually a length of 2 meters. I stick a butt enough for a picture 30×40.
Basically, you can just buy the plinth has a pattern, make it a frame or mold patterns with their hands – but we are not looking for easy ways 🙂
You will also need polymer clay, plaster, PVA (or plaster), paint, glue. But more on that below.
So carefully vymeryat plinth, in the right places to saw at 45 degrees, stick together and the resulting paste the frame on a flat wooden. For reliability, and can be self-tapping screws.
I recommend to withdraw from the inner edge of the wooden frame in the 0.5-1 cm, so that the inner edge of your future frame is not too tolstym.Nu and, moreover, such a gradation decorate your future masterpiece.
We overturn the frame and see that the back of the joint wooden frame with a plinth constitutes the ugly slit. We need it to cover. This can be done with plaster, and in the absence thereof, to prepare the mixture itself, by mixing plaster construction with a small number of CMV PVA glue and adding to the density slightly starch.
It turns out something like this (remember, this is the reverse side of the frame).
Now we begin to make decorations for our frames. Process is simple, but long, especially if your frame is large and you want to lavishly decorate it.
I opted for the grape design. Print from the Internet leaves of different shapes and sizes, carved.
Now about polymer clay. With the self-hardening I did not get to work very quickly, it loses its properties directly in his hand. And I like to be distracted, so for myself chose baked clay company Sonet.
At work it took me one and a half packs. Never leave the air the whole clay, cut off as you need, wrap the rest in a bag.
Open clay, cut off a small piece, crumble in your hand. To work with clay, I use a piece of tiles – is rolled out on it, the jar out of the tablet (s rolled out) and a sharp knife with a thin blade. Roll out the pancake, put our picture, draw out a knife, remove the excess on the leaf gently with a knife in the same plot the veins.
For vines thinly roll out a small piece of clay, you can right fingers. Ends carefully screwed onto a toothpick or a cotton swab. And in the oven. The temperature and baking time is always indicated on the package.
Bunches of grapes – made base of conical shape (the rear, ie from the side of the frame, it is, of course, flat), and grape – just small balls, a little pull, rolling it between two fingers.
Alternately putting a grape to the base, up close a few leaves. Bake has collected a bunch. Note that if you connect the individual pieces of clay and baked them, they do not crumble.
Skirting I took a big frame corners to get deep, I had to improvise as they poschedree close) One leaves like bored, so I decided to plant roses in the corners. Where can take roses among grapes – do not ask, do not know))
To roll out a small sausage roses can be irregular in shape, it does not matter.
Carefully wrap the edge of the sausage in and twist it a little reassembling clay, it will be the core of our roses.

Roll out the pancake, cut out three flat oval, well, if they are slightly pointed (tapered) with one hand. Cleave ovals circles narrower side down around the core rosettes.
Such circles of three petals make it 3-4. In each subsequent round ovals petals do a little more, and each petal clings so that it covers the junction of two previous round petals.
So your rosette will be more round, no corners.
Having 3-4 petals around the center of the circle, cut the leg (but not at the root, it is best to leave a little bit, so then it was easier to fit in the right place, you can cut and after) and bake.
Note that the picture is a rose in carafe – very convenient to keep her there, so as not hesitated, until you cut the other petals. Or, alternatively, in the neck of the bottle can be placed.
Bow. Roll out (or cut out from the pancake) long strip, folding the edges to the center. Small squares of clay do bow knot. Arch of the bow with a toothpick.
The picture still shows.
We make two more strips measuring about half less than the strip to bow. Each folding something like in the picture. Note that each of the two slips need to put a mirror, not to one side.
Here’s a roughly we turned the bow. You can bake the already built, but I advise you to bake parts, so it will be more convenient when you paste it.
Important – do not leave the baking later. Try to figure when done within 2-4 hours of time to bake, or clay may lose their properties to air. Or just put them in a bag.
We start to stick. Because frame corners I get deep (and was taken by a high plinth), the leaves would have to put a great deal. So I decided to make a kind of stand.
Just picked up a wooden brusochek and pasted.
Top clung clay, lifted her, keeping the shape, and baked. Then he pasted on brusochek and already on this base glued leaves and roses. Gluing prefer to type instant adhesive supermoment.
Well, then sticking, how do we tell a fantasy.
Those parts that are brownish in the picture – this is not another clay, and those pieces that I began to bake and forgot about them)) Here and so they were burned), but it does not matter, you still will be painted on top of us.
The finished frame cover bronze paint 2-3 layers. Because metallized ink generally have poor opacity, the first cover frame recommend conventional paint, for example, brown, and it is already two to three bronze layer. Dry them, varnished.
In principle, and so may be left. But I like the kind of aged bronze, because it tried to blacken. To this dark gray mixed with the paint drying retardant in a proportion of 1 to 2 by adding a few drops of water. Cover this with a mixture of the frame parts is necessary. Cover part, climbing carefully into all recesses, wait 20-30 seconds …
and protruding parts carefully wiped our cloth “blackening”.
And in the same way we treat all elements of the frame and ornament.
Blackening we are left in all the corners, recesses, giving the frame aged look.
Once lacquered, and a sigh of relief – all)
