23  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / liquid clay fairy wings...what do you think? on: April 14, 2010 09:34:02 AM
here are my fimo deko-gel wings.

here are the silver jewellery wires i used.
as you can see the first set were not successful.  the ballpoint pen ink i'd used to draw the wing shape got absorbed into the clay.  could be useful to do on purpose perhaps...  also one wing in particular got drawn back - perhaps i was miserly with the clay.  i also dropped in tiny seed beads.  and then i painted on some lines with a small bottle of 'white' glass paint.  then i pulled them off the wires so i could re-use them.
the second pair i left out the beads - used no ink Smiley  when they had cooled i painted lines like before.  the ends did draw back a little but quite accepatble for fairy wings i think.  as i've decided to use them for a sleeping baby that needs no support i pulled off the wires again.
i guess using coloured deko-gel could have a nice effect too.   now.  these wings are to be super-glued on after cos of the glass paint.  any ideas that i could use instead that will be ok in the oven would be much appreciated.

28  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / easter projects on: March 31, 2010 12:38:10 PM
here are the easter bunnies that caused me so many problems...

and a baby pixie named Pip.  his face is from a mould i made.

29  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / oh no disaster!!! on: March 29, 2010 09:42:08 AM

i made 3 easter bunnies.  with solid bodies etc.  i attached the head,ears, body with bits of wire - tho not an armature.  i cured them for 1hour 30 mins.    i covered them with foil to avoid  any burning.  when i got them out...DISASTER.
apart from small fixable things like arms falling off the worst part is that the heads fell sideways and the bodies are CRUMBLY!!!!!  do you think they have not baked properly?? if i patch them up and bake them again will the clay solidify??  this was new fimo and as i used 2 shades mixed together i know that i conditioned it well cos the 2 colours amalgamated completely.
30  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / shrinking!! on: March 27, 2010 10:41:03 PM
i made a tiny face that would  be hard to reproduce so i tried to make a mould.  i took a ball of polymer clay ( i think it was premo glo-in-the-dark)  made a ball twice the depth, height etc of the face and made the mould.  i cured it and when it cooled i tried it out.  the features reproduced quite nicely but why were the faces so small?  i tried the original face in the mould and it did not go in all the way down to the ears!!!  barely half way!!  i did not know the pc shrunk!!  as it was getting late and dark i tried with DAS (air-drying clay)  but this time i hollowed out a larger round shape before pressing the face in.  now it has to dry and we'll see.  if i get good results in DAS  it will be much cheaper to produce moulds.
