51  Tiny French wedding cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: March 05, 2012 09:09:24 PM


First of all I wanna say thank you to the ladies who introduced me to mixing gold powder with glaze. This has changed my polymer crafting life and I'm forever grateful. I almost cried tears of joy when I saw how beautiful the gold looked as I painted it on. Grin

This cake has been an obsession of mine since I googled "Marie Antoinette wedding cake". I've had it saved and my computer for months and decided I needed to make it. It took me a total of 22 hours over the course of 4 days. the gold detailing took the longest. I dust on some shimmer on the purple ribbons prior to baking but it wasn't the impact I wanted so I used the same technique with the gold powder. I mixed some of my purple eyeshadow in with the glaze and painted on this shade. Love how it turned out, just like the real thing.

Topper. Tiny little man and woman that was so tricky. This probably took 2-3 hours of trial and error until it looked just right. I added a layer of white acrylic paint and glaze to give it that porcelain look.


Details! Love the gold so much. Don't think anything has made me this happy in a while(crafting-wise) After baking I trimmed some white ribbon and glued it around the base. Just like it is in the pic. I wanted to keep in all those details and not just keep it bare white clay.


With the real cake and with a quarter for scale. It comes to about 3 1/2 inches tall.


I had so much fun making this even though the details made me crazy. I'm very proud and happy with the result.

Thanks for all that Diane! I'm actually going for more a graphic look like the popular vinyl toys. Maybe with painted on details.

53  Radioactive squirrel and LED lights in Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions by Rachelslittlethings on: March 02, 2012 09:09:19 PM

I just received a special commission to make this radioactive squirrel from The Simpsons. It's an awesome concept. I know there's some LED polymer artists that would understand this. I was thinking I'd craft the body and head separately then put a space for the LED light and leave the eyes open and maybe stick some translucent clay over the holes. Not sure. Also, any tips for sculpting this squirrel. I usually stick to more symmetrical shapes rather organic( except for flowers)

That gold powder is amazing!! I must get it. What is it? I actually am gonna make an Emmy soon and need something better cause it's a very complex award. Gold leaf will not work on it.


Thanks for the link Diane. I actually went and remade a tinier one. They were little prizes to give away for the Oscar party at my house.


I made tiny boxes and little labels that said "And the Oscar goes to..." Everyone really loved them.

I made a tiny Oscar. Getting the perfect shape was quite the challenge. I still think his legs are too thick at bottom. I covered him with gold leaf and it looks really shiny in person.

56  Another mini wedding cake in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: February 15, 2012 11:25:03 PM
Wedding cake I made for friends of friends. The cake part was very easy and simple to make except for the base pearl decoration. The topper took a lot of manipulating and work but love how it turned out.

57  "Blinky" from The Simpsons in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: February 15, 2012 02:12:04 AM
A little Valentine's trinket for my bf. He loves The Simpsons.





It was just orange clay for a while but me handling it made it grimy and dirty. So I mixed up some acrylic paint. I love the eyes.

Just did Rainbow Dash. This didn't turn out as precise. I wanted her to be in the leaping stance.

Carefully sculpted this with an x-acto knife, pottery scraping tools, a toothpick, and whatever else I could find that was tiny.
I had an original pony so I had that to look at for reference, which helped.

60  Evil monkey paw from The Simpsons in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by Rachelslittlethings on: February 08, 2012 10:30:26 PM



Made this for my bf. He loves The Simpsons. I shaped the paw using this video for help:

Then I baked it, then cut a teeny strip of faux black fur and glued it on.
