1  A mess load of projects finally done for my little sister :) Part 1 of 2 in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by sweetpetunia on: June 15, 2010 10:10:25 AM
Hi everyone,

This is my first post in the Polymer Clay: Completed projects, I have recently been asking a lot of questions in the discussion and question board associated with this board.

My Little sister (Of 10) loves that I've gotten into Polymer Clay, because that means that I'll make her some things occasionally. She was recently searching around for Polymer clay food blogs and found a bunch of them (Mostly: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=349132.0). Anyway, she made a word document and copied and pasted a bunch of pictures, sent them to me in an email and said " When you get the chance, could you make some of these?" -- She didn't include websites, So I can't give credit to the people that originally came up with them  Cry

I tried to make them as best I could, after I finished with all my exams. (Still waiting to get the results back, fingers crossed I do well Cheesy). I first made all of the actual polymer clay figures, and had them sitting around in a shelving unit for a bit, because I had NO idea of what to put them on. I then thought a few nights ago when I couldn't go to sleep. CARDBOARD!!! In the morning, I took some cardboard and either covered it in Aluminum Foil, or coloured paper.
Here are some of the things, she asked me to make........

The first was breakfast(ish):

Blueberry pancakes, with syrup, and more pancakes on the side. I actually burned the blueberries on the pancake so before I give them to my sister, I hope to remake that one.


Pretty much just: Cookies, eclair, muffins, and other goodies Cheesy

Cookies, that my sister actually made:

She was very proud with how they turned out, and so was I!! We used paint for the frosting, the only problem was it bubbled a bit while we baked it, but hey, It was a learning experience!!

Lemon chocolate cake, baking in progress:

I gotta work on the glueing part, that part didn't go the best, but I hope with more projects like this, I'll improve.

Icing the cakes:

I was a bit disappointed with the 'icing' in the bowls, it caved in a bit when it dried overnight.

That's all for now Cheesy

I have a few more projects, but I think I'll save that all for another thread.

Comments are always appreciated!!! Cheesy

2  Claires tutorial: Rainbow Eyes :D in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by sweetpetunia on: May 25, 2010 04:22:13 PM
For this tutorial, I'm using a 'palette' (not really) of eyeshadows from claires. I think i got them for $1.00 or something cheap like that.

(((NOTE: My camera was acting mental, and so I don't have pictures of all the steps Sad, sorry!!!)))

This is the look we're creating Cheesy


Remember to add your eyeshadow primer: (Check out my DIY Eyeshadow primer: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=348354.0)

You can really use any of these colours in any order but I did them in this order:
Starting from the outside of my eye inwards:

(Sorry about my finger being in focus, and not the eyeshadows)

I was actually sorta happy with how it turned out Cheesy

Hope this was helpful, sorta!

Please leave your comments down below!!

EDIT: I hope to run to the dollar/99 cent store soon to pick up some of their cheap eye shadow. I'm going to try to use the primer and see how the color looks. Smiley

3  Avon Eye Shadow Duo with Tutorial: Lavender (Electric Purple) in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by sweetpetunia on: May 23, 2010 05:47:31 PM
Hey everyone,

I found this duo with some of my makeup and I thought I would make a thread with a tutorial. After lots of emailing back and forth between the Moderator of the Beauty section and me I have finally found out that with makeup threads you also need to add a tutorial. Silly me!! THANKS A WHOLE LOT MARY ANN!!!!!!!!!!!! You helped a great deal with this thread!!

This is the final look Cheesy

This is the duo:

This is what the eyeshadows look like on paper:

Tutorial time:

1st: Apply your primer!

You only need a little bit for each eye:

(I actually got to much on my finger. Maybe about half of that for each eye Wink

Now for the colour:

Add the darker of the 2 colors first

My camera doesn't really pick up on the camera, but in person it almost looks Electric

Now to brighten it up a bit, we're going to add the lighter color on top:

It should look something like this......

or this!! Sorry about it not being in focus though!!

Once you've finished with the eyeshadow, add your final touches (I.E. Eye Liner, Mascara.....)

4  DIY Eyeshadow Primer!!!! in Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects by sweetpetunia on: May 23, 2010 05:35:44 PM
I got tired of spending $20 on good eye shadow, and then having it wear off in the middle of the day. Then I'd have to go and buy a decent eyeshadow primer for another $20. It got to be a little expensive for me!!

So, while I was shopping around for makeup I picked up some Covergirl concealer in Buff Beige (or something) only to get home and find out it was the wrong shade (After opening it!). So I went on the web and looked for a way to make eye shadow primer and here it is:

You'll need:

1 Container to hold your eyeshadow primer,
Unscented, or not very scented body Butter,
(I found mine was not highly scented)
Concealer ( Any shade, as long as it's close to your skin colour), and
a popsicle stick.

Instructions (Very simple)

In your container put half Body Butter, and half concealer. (if you add too much concealer, it will be runny. So add the body butter and then slowly add the concealer)

Be sure to mix it well

and there you go!! You're DONE!!

Here MareMare:
(I got lazy, and didn't feel like adding it, until now Wink -- It looks just like Concealer

(Remember though, you only need a wee little amount of it for your eye each time. So, don't add too much)
