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
2  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.
