Sculpt flower bracelet

Sculpt flower bracelet

Dear friends, I suggest to watch another class on modeling.
Today we will sculpt flower bracelet on a wooden base, and I’ll show you a few tricks and techniques that will help you reduce vremyazatraty while maintaining quality.
class is designed for handy people who already have experience in the modeling of the colors of polymer clay, but newcomers may well use my tips to create from scratch a similar decoration.


So, we need:

  • the wood to bracelet
  • Beads
  • Bake polymer clay
  • liquid polymer clay (gel)
  • super glue (gel)
  • PVA glue (primer)
  • acrylic paints
  • acrylic lacquer


  • toothpicks, stacks
  • stationery knife
  • worktop
  • glass or glass
  • extruder (not required)

Before decorate bracelet polymer clay, it must be polished with sandpaper and primed in multiple layers on the outside and inside. You can use stain, or PVA glue. It is necessary that, after firing the wood is not deformed, and plastic is not cracked. When the bracelet is dry, you can begin to work.


If you plan to use your decor colors without a central hole (for example, roses or buttercups), blind them in advance and carry out firing for 10 minutes.


With the help of super-glue (best to use the gel) glue beads on a wooden base – in a row or randomly. If you select an arbitrary location of the beads, then the following steps will not be necessary beads


Glue a strip of polymer clay beads around the edge of the row. In order to press the plastic to the beads, use a toothpick or stack. If the plastic is quite soft, the liquid gel you do not need.


Press your fingers to the edge of the plastic beads. It’s okay if some places visible holes, they closed down flower petals. This step with gluing strips can and do skip.


And this stage it is better not to miss. Promazhte slightly liquid plastic bezel bracelet (I Fimo gel) and apply the same strip of polymer clay. This will help avoid gaps on the sides, which would fill the small flowers.


We now have a frame made of beads and rim. In principle, now the roasted roses may not be used, and start filling bracelet raw colors. But I thought the composition of roses. They stuck to the liquid plastic, although you can use super glue, but I want to be able to move a rose if necessary.


If your liquid plastic is too thin, then mix it with the ordinary until creamy and stick the flowers with the help of the resulting mixture. I did not spend time on the preparation of the “cream” and just took a thin pancake made of hard plastic, lubricant gel on both sides of Fimo (it is very liquid), and with the push of a rose stuck in the bracelet using these lozenges.


When the frame is ready, you can fill in the gaps in other colors. I chose the colors of vanilla, because they have a fairly large “swing”, so flowers need less – another plus for those who want to save time.
Put a flower on a toothpick, a little pull and bend the tail, dip it into the liquid plastic to the bend


Fill voids “raw” color with a toothpick. Do not forget to lubricate each tail gel (if you Fimo, do not overdo it with the amount, otherwise it will begin to flow immediately, as soon as the band put in preheated oven)


So fill the entire upper part of the band. Frame of beads and baked roses will keep the “raw” flowers.


On top of already beautiful, but the job is only half done.


Gently turn the bracelet and not to crush the flowers, put it on a glass, you can now continue.


My first bracelet is very convenient to put on a glass of beer, sit tight and high – right at eye level, but this band different diameter, so the first step had to be performed on the table, and then wear a bracelet on the glass. Minus one – the bracelet is not fixed and can be tilted. It is just important not to rush and do everything carefully. Repeat the rim and paste roses.


Personally, I mentally was a lot easier to stick the flowers first, and then quickly put them into the composition.


At the conclusion of the bracelet and twist the fill colors previously unnoticed gaps. “Total” 12:00 sculpting, and voila, the bracelet is ready for firing!

In this form, directly on the glass, I send in a preheated 130 degree oven for 30 minutes. When the bracelet is cool, you can paint and varnish! *Attention! Very not cool!


Mix acrylic paint to achieve the desired shade.
I’m lazy, and not bracelet skins, so to hide the flaws wood surface, the paint will not be applied with a brush, a sponge – promakivat movements (decoupage technique).


On the one hand, I painted the inner surface of the bracelet bright acrylics, and on the other – dark.


At the conclusion of nearly blotted dry sponge tips of the petals across the surface of the bracelet. When the paint is dry, paint can be applied. Flowers are not varnished, but the inner surface. That’s done!

So, to sum up the results.
Flower bracelet on a wooden base can be decorated much faster, saves time if the following steps:
Leave a bracelet without sanding. Painting with a sponge hide irregularities wooden surface.
Hard frame form of beads or cabochons. Just glue them using super-glue (gel) – in a series of “equator” or in a chaotic manner.
With the two sides sticking rim of polymer clay – the edges of the bracelet. So you will not have to cover the gaps many small flowers or attempt after firing paint over a wooden base in these gaps.
During operation, put the wood on glass or tall glass. So you raise the work closer to eye level and be able to rotate the bracelet, without touching it with his hands.
Spend only one firing, in the Finals. It’s not just saves time but also reduces the risk of damage to the work (discoloration, scorching etc.).
