That's the last thing I've created with polymer clay.
A lot of brooches:



Materials and Tools:
-Polymer Clay in hot pink, blue, black, white and purple.
-Ribbons
-Felt
-Flower Cutters in different sizes
-Star cutters in different sizes
-Glue
-brooches
-Pasta Machine (or roller)

Directions:
First of all you need to know what you want!!!
Then, condition each of the clays individually starting with the lightest color.
Make sheets with pasta machine, and don't forget to do the biggest flower thicker than rest, by this way you make the brooche stronger.
Once baked, glue pieces to brooches. I use a two components glue named Araldit, but E-6000 is perfect.
If you want to add ribbons you only have to put them between piece and brooch.

I hope you enjoy it, and sorry if my english sucks  Embarrassed

Nuhbe,

First, your English is totally great... I wouldn't worry about that at all!

The brooches (I never know how to pronounce that word Huh so just call 'em pins) are really graphic and fun.  You said you'd used "flower cutters." I haven't seen flower cutters in just that shape... did you perhaps use circle cutters and put all the disks together yourself??? (or where did you get the cutters, if not?)

super sushi,

Since you're in the UK, I assume you could get a pasta machine (pasta roller, pasta press) at various places because you're closer to Italy than we are in the US, but if not Sue Heaser at the Polymer Clay Pit probably has them on this page (actually, the one she sells is the cheaper type made in the Far East rather than in Italy... and is more expensive than the same one here! so I'd try yard sales, and relatives first  Cheesy):
http://www.polymerclaypit.co.uk/acatalog/Basic_Tools.html

You can make even sheets though without a pasta machine... check this page for info on how:

Are you serious?? wow, thanks!!! I always try hard so lots of thanks for your comment  Kiss

The brooches (I never know how to pronounce that word Huh so just call 'em pins)

Yeah, it's better call them pins,sorry I usually call them brooches because in spanish pins and brooches are different things but you're right.

are really graphic and fun.  You said you'd used "flower cutters." I haven't seen flower cutters in just that shape... did you perhaps use circle cutters and put all the disks together yourself??? (or where did you get the cutters, if not?)


No Diane!! I really used flower cutters  Grin
It's easy find this kind of cutters in my country, I can show you some links where you can buy them:
http://www.manualidadesybellasartes.es/subcategorias.asp?fam_id_padre=206&fam_id=404
Here cheaper: http://www.manualidadesxaviarts.com/

Searching in this web sites I haven't found the tiniest cutter I have, it measures 1'2cm of diameter, I promisse!!! It's a flower with five petals,and it's almost impossible to  extract the polymer clay when you use it  Cheesy

Yep, I'm definitely serious!... and I can be kinda picky about language if I don't curtail myself (which I try to do 'cause in the end it's not really important Cheesy). 
Your word order and correctness in use of phrases and idioms is quite good... there were only a few very tiny grammar or usage mistakes that might have alerted me to a non-native speaker, but generally you sounded totally like a native.

Okay... my curiousity is getting the better of me --what's the diff. between them in Spanish?

Oh, those are cool.   We may have them here but I haven't seen them and I've seen a lot of cutters.  We do have some small metal "flower" cutters, but the petals aren't nearly that defined:

LOL... been there, done that!  You might want to read some of the suggestions for extracting clay from cutters on this page though:

I'm content if people can understand me.
I know, my english is far to be perfect but I promisse to improve Wink


Okay... my curiousity is getting the better of me --what's the diff. between them in Spanish?

Well, in spanish there are:
Brooches-Broches http://www.lolaymaria.com/images/mamita/broche%20pasquale.JPG
Pins-Pins http://www.lapel-pin-manufacturers.com/rimages/88/flashing-pin-B.jpg
and also
Agujas (needles is the literal translation) http://www.flickr.com/photos/celinda/135292522/

But, like in other languages, there are people who call broche to a pin, aguja to a broche etc etc
Anyway, the common word used is broche.



Oh, those are cool.   We may have them here but I haven't seen them and I've seen a lot of cutters.  We do have some small metal "flower" cutters, but the petals aren't nearly that defined:
http://www.polymerclaypit.co.uk/acatalog/Flower_cutters.html

http://www.polymerclaypit.co.uk/acatalog/Makins_Cutter_Sets.html

Yeah, you're right, our cutters are more defined Huh That's rare!!


Thanks for the links! Very interesting.
I usually kill my free time at the PC contemplating this website: http://polymerclayexpress.com/cutters.html
I love them all!

Thanks for the link, I thought some "tricks", but  I'll take into account for my future creations.

Okay... thanks for that... I definitely see the differences between those.
I think we in the US might call the second ones "lapel pins" (or "those little pins that you stick through your clothes and then have a squeeze thingie to hold them on"  Grin). 
The third ones are often called "stick pins" here, I think. 
That leaves "brooch" or brooche, etc. for anything larger that usually has a "bar pin" type pinback on its back, right?
(I still don't know how we Americans are supposed to pronouce "brooch"... I think a lot of people say BROHch/broach, but mostly I just see it written so am never sure).  Oh well!
