1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Cameo making? on: July 02, 2010 06:00:33 AM
Hi. I've wanted to try and make some sculpting with clay for awhile now, espcially the figures on cameos. My problem is I don't have any sculpting experience with clay, and I don't want to buy any new tools except for the basic ones I already have (pasta machine, exacto knife, some brushes with round edges). I don't like using molds, and I can't make ones - the mold clay isn't avilable where I live.
So my question is this - how can I get many details on a very small area? (Something like 5 cm, maybe less)
Some examples I found on DeviantArt -

And anothe thing - I'm trying to make this (for a friend, she's a twilight fanatic) - http://www.oncelink.com/photo/Alice%20%282%29.jpg -  a scale of something like 5 cm, but I can't get the animal thing right. Someone suggested to paind all the details after baking, but I wan't it to be above the surface. Same question as above, actually...
Thanks! Smiley

3  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Shaped whipped cream? on: October 28, 2009 07:39:08 AM
I'm having troubles with making the icing on cupcakes look like real whipped cream icing. I searched for some tutorial, didn't found anything... Some artits I asked told my they use an ice tipping - how do you use it with the polymer clay and TLS mix?
I want to make something like this -

Any other ideas on how to make this effect would be great as well. Smiley
Whipped sillicon cream isn't an option, sadly, since it's not avilable where I live and I can't buy it online since, well, it'll be really expensive with the shipping and everything.

did you use a mold for the cupcakes? If so, do you have some tips on creating one? My cupcakes never come out in the same size - one is huge and the other one it tiny, and so on... What did you use to make the mold?

Oh, this are just beautiful. What kind of cilicon cream you bought? I can't find it anywhere... And another question, how do you make the cups to looks so realistic? Mine are just like lines I make with a toothstick... Do you use a tesxtrue for that?

Looks so yummy! What's a silicon cream? It looks pretty nice to wark with it.
And the idea of making the little decorations, baking them and putting in a box... Brilliant!
Will you make a tutorial on how you made the cupcakes with the frosting?
