21  A tiny makeup room in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: February 25, 2013 12:49:13 PM
I was asked to be in a Star Trek themed art show. I didn't finish my piece in time but I got a quite accomplished. I made a teeny makeup room with a few Star Trek prosthetic pieces. My project isn't technically all polymer but there's quite a lot of polymer involved.

23  Star Trek fine jewelry in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Rachelslittlethings on: February 09, 2013 08:18:57 PM
My first attempt at some pretty jewelry. I got some empty mounts and crystal lacquer. Then had some photos printed out at Kinkos, cut them to fit the mount, then squeezed the crystal solution on top. Took forever to dry, like a day and a half. Then found some gold chain, charms, and findings at my local bead shop. I absolutely love the lauquer and want to do a ton of others. I need a Lincoln necklace like asap. Grin

24  A new little cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: February 06, 2013 05:37:24 PM
Birthday gift for my roommate. Took me only 3 1/3 hours. I used a cut up piece of filigree and stuck it to the clay for the decoration. Love the flowers especially and gold painted leaves. No new techniques except for the filigree. I just glued it on a ceramic cake stand.



With a flash and a bit closer to see the details

26  Cherry, apple, and pumpkin pie magnets in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: November 21, 2012 08:01:44 PM
Making these for my cousin. She's having me over for Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. I used a pie mold I got from Etsy for the base.



^Individually shaped each little cherry, mixed it with some deko gel and red pastel shavings, made a goop and scooped it on. The cris-cross pattern was a bit tedious.



^Pumpkin. my fave. Did a goop of orange brown clay mixed with TLS then spread it in and tried to flatten is as best I could. Pumpkin pie flat in the pan. The whipped cream is pluffy pushed through an icing topper.



Apple. Not totally happy with the colors on this one to be honest. I tried it twice before making it. The apple pieces are mixed with deko gel and yellow pastel shavings. I cut out the piece, stuck it on a little plate, added the fork.

And they all have magnets on the back. Smiley

I found this today at my local bead shop. It's pretty small but the shape isn't exact but close enough. Plus the bottom needs to be thicker I think to support it as an ornament. Thanks for that idea Smiley

28  Seafoam green, pink roses, and emblem cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: October 21, 2012 06:51:38 PM
My latest mini cake. About 2 1/2 inches high. Gonna give this one to a friend for her birthday. Her name starts with a "K". Totally not my design. I saw the cake below and switched the colors and flower design a bit. Her favorite colors are seafoam green and pink.








A few new techniques used on this. I did a spackling technique with liquid polymer and bits of clay mixed to match the seafoam shade. Then I spread it on and "paved" it I guess to make it smooth an even. Sometimes the tiers and bases need some perfecting and when I try to rub it the tiers get all lumpy and uneven. There's actually a crack on the back between tier 3 and 4 that I tried to spackle and when baking the crack ended up showing through Sad And making that gathered ribbon effect didn't turn out quite as I wanted. I used a rubber Kemper tool I had from my special effects makeup class to get the little lines.

This is also my first time trying out Pluffy clay by Sculpey. I heard it's great for flowers since it's so lightweight. It's really awesome and instead of baking the flowers and painting them afterwards with acrylic, I just dusted the tips or the entire flower with chalk pastels. I did a variety and pink, pink orange, pink purple, and green yellow for the leaves. Such an awesome effect and it looks to realistic and gives them that multidimensional gradient effect.

29  Need some help with this, crafty ppl in Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions by Rachelslittlethings on: October 20, 2012 12:06:40 AM
I have an order to replicate this cake into a Christmas ornament. The cake part is easy but I'm struggling on the clay vase. cause not only to do I have to make the vase, make all the flowers, but I have to stick an eyepin through the top of it to make the ornament.

I tried make a cone shape with silver clay with intentions of painting it shiny silver after  drying, then added the flowers but they just wouldn't hang right. I also have Pluffy. Is that better for flower making and what could I use for the vase is the clay still doesn't work.





Any innovative ideas welcome Grin
