31  A few new mini foods in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: September 11, 2012 11:59:14 PM
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

32  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.

33  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.

34  "Put a bird on it" wedding cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: August 20, 2012 01:26:40 PM
I actually searched "wedding cake with birds" and found this cake, saved it on my computer, then soon after realized it belonged to a couple I knew.


Real cake


This is on my favorite ones I've done so far. I loved painting the birds after it was baked. The "twigs" are super thin wire painted brown. The twigs on the bases are just clay snakes rolled super thin.

35  Where to get tiny glass cake/cookie stands in Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions by Rachelslittlethings on: August 19, 2012 08:17:34 PM
I have an order for these Swedish princess weddings cakes. Unfortunately I don't do glassware and I need to pick up 2 pieces as you can see. I need to be small. No larger than 1 inch or 1& 2/3 inch in diameter and preferably under $15. Any places you know of?

36  My latest mini cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: August 19, 2012 03:27:26 PM


I haven't done one of these in months. This cake has been on my computer for like a year now and I've been meaning to make it. My first time doing zig zags. I carefully measured them and cut them with an x-acto knife but they still didn't turn out as precise as the pic. I painted them with the gold powder and glaze technique. My favorite part is the top tier of flowers. The ribbon isn't the exact shade but it was the closest shade I found at Jo-Anne's.

37  World's tiniest pug in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: July 29, 2012 01:13:53 AM
My roommate has a pug and they have a hilarious way if sitting. I took pics of the dog and used him as my model. This is super tiny cause it's sitting on a penny. I carved it from 1 piece of clay with x-actos knifes, a tooth pick and needles then painted details with acrylic paint.

38  Pink & peach ombre cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: July 28, 2012 09:12:26 PM
Hi all. I haven't posted anything in a while. I've been busy with a move and freelance makeup jobs. Grin I hadn't made anything in like 2 months but my friend's birthday was coming up and I made her this little birthday cake complete with a little rose.



I have some free time now and I'm looking forward to making some new creations.

39  Fruit and flowers layer cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: May 26, 2012 09:50:07 PM


Love this one so much. Been looking at this cake for months and I had to make it. I did the layers then added a thin white layer in between, then afterwards I mixed up some of that "whipped cream" concoction and used a toothpick to apply it. Love how realistic it turned out. I mixed the berry colors with a bit of translucent clay to give them that dimensional look, and painted them with glaze. Love how those look.

40  Seafoam green, silver balls, pink flowers in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: May 26, 2012 09:39:41 PM


This is just like that purple one I've made twice. Mixed a seafoam green shade, and did multi colored flowers. Then put silver microbeads on the pleats.
