846  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Pottery, Ceramics, etc: Completed Projects / king Proteus wedding plate on: August 18, 2010 03:14:09 AM
this was a commission that i and my colleague did (she added the leaves and the writing, i did the flower) i found it quite hard to do as the paints change colour after firing and as the colours we had were limited so i had to mix the paints and guess what colour i would have when it came out of the kiln. Roll Eyes
i didnt find this an easy flower to draw either  (l i find trying to recreate anything with a resonable degree of realism quite hard with this sort of paint Undecided).

some of it came out better than other bits Undecided
the clients seemed thrilled though Smiley


(the plate is premade bisque and measures 35 cm in diameter.  the 'paints' were gare underglaze this photo was taken after a first firing (to set the glazes prior to a dip clear glaze) )





comments  and advice are more than welcome Smiley

thank you.

i leeched the blend first on baking paper before 'tearing' it (i like the 'water colour' idea though Grin )

i specifily chose wooden pegs rather than plastic so i could bake them using the liquid clay as an adhesive as i wasnt sure what glue i could use (i now know! )
i did think about baking the penguin around the end of the peg but i thought the glue thing would be easier though if i would probably build the figure around the peg as i think it would make the design much stronger.

my fingers go above the beak (hence they have quite large flat foreheads  Wink ........the addition of the flower was not my best idea as it quite delicate making her a little more fragile Undecided

These are super cute! Did you bake them on the peg or glue them on after baking?

i made the penguins then i 'glued' them onto the peg with liquid polymerclay.
i wasn't sure which glue would be suitable to use with polymer clay Undecided

penguin pals for your washing line!

had fun making these. first thing i've made with polymerclay that was neither a bangle, bead, broach or button! Grin
(no action shoots im afraid, its spent the last week pouring with rain Roll Eyes ) i used seed beads for the penguins eyes. i pleased with how the 'sea' came out as i' hadn't tried making 'torn' clay sheets before.
