I made some polymer clay book charms this week! I haven’t worked with polymer clay since kindergarten, so I was surprised at how easy these were to make! They’re not perfect of course, but I’m really happy with how they turned out! 📚😊
Blue Diamond is finished!
She’s almost 9 inches tall and has about 5 points of articulation.
Materials used: floral wire, polymer clay, gloss varnish, acrylic paint, yarn, material and thread, textile medium, a fake gem, and LOTS of glue. She is hand-sculpted, no molds used.
>take note of her tears! They’re my favorite part.
My photography doesn’t do her justice. She is more detailed in person. Unfortunately, I am not an experienced photographer.
**The pieces of granite are carefully selected by my dog and brought home from his walks, (not sure why he favours granite!) disinfected and sealed in with the clay. He’s a good pupper, helping with my art :D**
So I decided to make a new Goddess statue today. Then I decided to make a little tutorial. My camera was not so helpful
this is the first time I made any polymer clay figure with foil inside, so I ended up using more than is pictured here.
the “knees” here I ended up straightening and added more foil for the rest of the legs. Basically I did a thin coat of clay to hold everything together at first.
the foil I was going to use for the head ended up filling the chest cavity. then I started on the breasts, thighs, and butt.
I added foil arms and neck
added the legs and covered everything. After that i would take tiny strips of clay and fill in missing areas, and add bulk where the body was too thin
I used a mold for the face. I’m not good at doing faces
Then I realized the butt was too small, as were the thighs. I made two tear drop shapes for the butt and blended, with the thighs I did long strips of clay.
I re-did her face, then started adding “land”
Than I started adding hair and a crown. For the crown I used glass beads and stone chips. To anchor them securely I put wire through the holes, twisted it up and made sure the wire went deep into the clay
I did her makeup with some glittery powder (made for polymer clay specifically) Now all she needs is a few coats of glaze!
