11  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Another wedding cake on: April 24, 2011 05:33:45 PM
My cousin got married in October and I've re-created it. I made a timeline of the process as well.

12  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Hilary Duff's wedding cake on: March 27, 2011 06:47:42 PM
I always thought hers was really unique looking and I finally made it. The roses should be chunkier but they looked odd when I tested it out, so I had to make them smaller. I'm not totally happy with the butterfly either but I had to make it really tiny. Other than that I'm really pleased with the outcome.
13  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Flower cake: should i cut piece out or not? on: March 17, 2011 08:44:44 PM
Haven't been posting here in a while. I moved to California in November to attend school and I haven't had time to make clay. I brought all my stuff out here though cause I knew I'd get the itch. I wanted some inspiration so I searched pretty cakes on Flickr and found this one:

It's not finished. After I bake it I'm gonna paint the details more.
There's an off-white color in the bottom tier and I'm debating whether I wanna cut into it or not. I love the dimension of cutting into a piece to show it's complexity. The roses took about 3 days to complete. Smiley
14  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Bunny with evil strawberry on: February 20, 2011 11:17:42 AM
A friend and I collaborated on this. She sculpted the bunny which looks incredible(she's a cartoonist) and I made the strawberry and painted the him.
15  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / What's the best oven to get? on: February 20, 2011 09:47:17 AM
At home I used to just use my kitchen oven and it worked great. I recently moved in with my cousin and his oven is awful. It burned 2 of my clay projects. Then I tried the toaster oven and it worked for the most part but burned the edges slightly of another project. So I definitely need to get a polymer oven meant for clay.

What do you all use?
Thanks. Smiley
16  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Which candy corn is real? whis is fake? on: September 22, 2010 06:35:58 PM
Jk. You can definitely tell the one on the left is real. I made a mold by pushing a real candy corn into a slab of clay, baked it, then mixed the colors, then pressed them into the mold. Probably gonna make my mom some earrings.


ETA. I crossed my mind to run it through the pasta machine 2-3 times to get that graduated color effect and it worked! Now it looks real...

I mostly just made this for fun but I'm gonna end up giving to my cousin for her 10th birthday in January. I plan on putting the cut out piece on a plate with a fork, and make a tiny tiara from wire and beads and sit it next to the cake. It's gonna be a princess themed setting. Smiley
I'm so proud of the graduated color effect and it was really easy too. I just put two shades next to each other and ran them through the pasta machine a few times. This is my first time making a castle. I molded the shapes and stuck some wire in them then in the cake to hold them in place. I painted the castle after to give it an icing look. Very happy with this.
18  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Need some opinons for my castle cake on: September 16, 2010 01:53:11 AM


So I've done this gorgeous graduated color effect which I love. I need some advice on a few things...

1. How to I blend those sharp edges on the tier so they don't look so sharp and blunt. I want like a rounded look to them.

2. What should border the golden staircase? I was thinking flowers most definitely but not sure what color or how they would look. Any ideas on that?

3. What should I do with the castle to make it "complete". I think it needs some kind of border or something sitting on that top tier around it. I'm gonna go back in an paint in details like making the 2 front tiers light pink as well.

4. If anyone has any other ideas to make this more esthetically pleasing to the eye they are welcome Grin

Thanks ya'll
19  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Bella's birthday cake from New Moon on: August 12, 2010 01:10:41 PM



I was checking out the deleted scenes on New Moon and saw they had a quick shot of Bella's birthday cake. I perked up, found a screen shot, and re-created it. I didn't wanna put the "Bella" on top cause i plan on sending this to my 10 year old cousin for her birthday.
20  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Yet another wedding cake for friend on: August 10, 2010 07:45:32 AM
Another friend got married last month and I made a mini of her cake. This one was tough. It's about 1 3/4 inches tall. I tried a new technique to make the tiers more even and flat. I rolled filler clay through my pasta machine at the 9 level, then layered them until it was the right height(4 layers= 1/2 inch) Then I rolled in the white clay and traced the circle part on top then a long strip to wrap around the sides. It worked really well and I'm happy with how even and clean the tiers look. Then I added the swirls, the dots, the M L B emblem, and the "icing" at the base.
The flowers were so intricate and detailed with the colors I just chose base shades of clay then painted them afterwards with acrylic paint.

Before the flowers. The swirls took fooorever. Swirls are my least favorite thing to do. But I'm very pleased at the symmetry and even-ness of the tiers.
