1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Re: preserving leaves in polymer clay? on: May 27, 2014 12:45:10 AM
I don't think it works. I used some dried flower petals coated in liquid clay (teeny bubbles) then the sandwich of translucent clay was murky and unless you shine a light through not very visible. Could have just been my technique though!

The translucent one looks so much like jade! Very pretty!

Thanks all Cheesy

This is my previous attempt http://tyney123.deviantart.com/gallery/?q=jaffa+cake#/d28a0et

I want to try again with one of these methods once I've been to a hardware store to find something metal and circular to keep the clay circular.

I think these look fabulous, but if you want something metal and circular, have you checked out "fondant cutters" -- our local big chain craft store carries them (in the cake decorating section) and they come in a range of sizes (I'm not looking at my set at the moment, but I'd guess they range from 1/2" to 2").

Yeah, the reason I'm trying a hardware store first is to keep costs down because from previous trips to hobbycraft etc they seem to be much to much out of price range. But I'll bear it in mind!

You can mix oil paint with liquid fimo gel,that's amazing.I'm gonna try that,too Cheesy
You can indeed! You can mix allsorts with it, check out Glassattic.com for more info Cheesy Awesome website!
4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Galaxy Print Cosmic Pendants on: July 13, 2012 04:31:56 AM
I'm a real sucker for trends sometimes and the new cosmic galaxy print that's sweeping about the fashion world is absolutely luuhh-vvlehh. But sadly I can't pull the print off in clothing as I'm not a skinny-minny by any stretch of the imagination so the big bold pattern will make me look-uh- big and bold also.

So I went about making these, made from polymer clay and then hand painted with acrylic paints.

Thanks for looking!

My most realistic jaffa cake to date. I was tinkering and thinking about how to get the jelly part more jelly like, cause although the older version where I used translucent orange clay worked okay-ish it was more the cutting with a straw I didn't like. Just not the right effect.
So this is the updated version, and with textured bottom too! The jelly part (For anyone who's mildy intrigued) Is liquid fimo gel tinted with teeeny tiny bits of oil paint and dropped onto a lined baking sheet, baked and then trimmed to size. I tried making a wire circle to keep the blobs more circular and a foil bowl but both failed. I want to try again with one of these methods once I've been to a hardware store to find something metal and circular to keep the clay circular. But on with the photos!

Thanks for looking!

I'm an absolute nut for Sherlock, especially the newer BBC version. So these jewellery pieces are inspired by that wonderful series.

First up is the I.O.U apple that Moriarty carved out for Sherlock in the final episode of te last series. I loved that scene and I loved the iconic apple so much that I made some earrings, and necklaces and a brooch or two. The 2D flat brooch is by far my favourite.

Next are some attempts at the Reichenbach Falls painting. One is hand painted with acrylics. The other is Shrinky-Dink plastic with coloured pencil.

Then Irene Adlers Phone. This was a commissioned piece but I made quite a few to get the feel of how the flip to make a phone.

Thanks for looking!

Thank you all Cheesy
8  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / 'Baker' The Doctor Who Bear on: May 29, 2012 05:51:07 AM
This is Baker.

Isn't he lovely?

For my birthday my mum got me a bunch of those "20 to make" books and one of them was "20 Polymer Clay bears" Some were cute and some a little odd but the general idea didn't seem all that difficult.
So with an evening free and a strip of the polymer clay scarf left about I thought "I know! A Doctor Who bear!" And here he is.
Chocolate brown fur, black shiny nose and glass bead eyes make him and then wrapped around him is the infamous Doctor Who stripy scarf.

I'm thinking I might do a few more, 'Tennant' 'Smith' 'Davison' And so on. Could be fun!

10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Doctor Who Jewellery - Rather a lot of it... on: May 20, 2012 07:01:21 AM
Hello all! I've been quite the busy bee since Easter, and my latest craze is making Doctor  Who jewellery and accessories (Also Sherlock and LotR stuff too, but that's another story!) There's a few photos but I'm really proud with how these have come together that I wanted to share ^.^

First up, I made the first sonic screw driver on the left in January this year (2012) the one on the right was made beginning of April. Pretty good improvement I'd say!

10 + 11's Screwdrivers

Larger Versions

River Song's Diary -

I made this way back last year, making an opening using two jump rings and although well liked and received I was never happy with the look. Then one day I was doing the pots and this little thought came to me about using a locket, covering it in clay and it would open and close with a real working hinge. Then I thought about book lockets you can get and this was formed!

To say I'm pleased with it is a small under statement.

And then, to not forget my polymer clay food-ish routes I made this -

An Eleventh Hour food charm bracelet, featuring all the dishes Amelia cooks for the Doctor in the first episode of series 5. I did make one of these, again last year, but this is the new shiny version that looks much prettier and sleeker.

And just to prove how crazy I am I decided I wanted to see how small I could get the dishes...
Quite small apparently, but there's a crazier side of me wanting to go smaller...

And finally, in good Doctor Who sense, let's wrap this up with a bowl of custard and some fish fingers.
