21  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

23  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

25  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.

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

I've been trying out new techniques I found on Youtube as well as new products. Testing out my Fimo Liquid and Kato Polyclay as well as coloring with chalk pastels. Love the shiny result from Liquid Fimo. Grin

29  Any ideas for making this? in Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions by Rachelslittlethings on: September 05, 2012 01:10:06 AM

So my friend is a big fan of this show and I wanna do a mini of the treehouse for his birthday. I dont really make little structures or landscapes. The base is gonna be that hill and I want it to have a flat bottom, curved surface, maybe a metal or glass dome to keep the shape as I make it. Where can I get a dome? About a half-dollar size in diameter?
Then the trunk and arms of the tree would be a skeleton of wire covered in the clay. Then I'd sculpt from there. The details should be fairly easy. Any idea of what I should make the bridges from?

This pic is big Smiley

Any tips would be helpful. This is going to be tiny. Half-dollar size 1 1/2 inch in diameter.

30  Re: Where to get tiny glass cake/cookie stands in Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions by Rachelslittlethings on: August 30, 2012 01:54:56 PM
I searched high and low and finally settled on these 2 pieces. They won't be exact as I wanted but the scale is so small I'm sure it won't be too noticeable. I was concerned that the small stand with the smallest cake on it. It's slightly taller than the stand with the macaroons. But I just couldn't find something tall enough. Sad

40mm diameter

a little under 30mm diameter

And I'm going to make the flat silver plate out of a button or something I find. Maybe clay covered in silver paint.

Both ebay purchases.
