21  Yet another wedding cake for friend in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by rachelbunny 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.

22  Mochi ice cream balls magnet in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by rachelbunny on: August 02, 2010 05:34:52 PM
While visiting my cousin in Honolulu she took me to Bubbies and we had these ice cream balls. They're just ice cream wrapped in a rice paste. They were awesome and looked so cute on the display so I'm gonna send her this magnet I made.

The real thing:

In retrospeck I should have placed them closely together but I think I nailed the colors. I scraped a white colored pencil with an x-acto knife over the balls to give them that powdery look.

23  Bag of marijuana, pipe, and lighter magnet in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by rachelbunny on: July 30, 2010 07:19:23 PM
to change your image viewing settings please click here

The "weed" is just oregano and I put it in a plastic bag and crimped the edges. It looks cute in person but the glare is bad in the picture. I used translucent and colored clay and swirled it to make the little pipe, and did the same with the lighter. The piece of wood I got at Michael's and stained it myself Cool

24  Nausicań of the Valley of the Wind creature magnets. in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by rachelbunny on: July 26, 2010 06:46:16 PM
While staying with my cousin on vacation he and his roomates watched this movie. I'm not an anime fan. Anyways I wanted to make them some thank you gifts for letting me stay with them. I figured making the "ohmu" bug things would be a neat gift. I did some research and apparently when they're mad they have red eyes and when they're calm they have blue eyes. I made some impressions for the magnets to be glued in. Took me awhile to perfect the shade. In some pics they look all black, then bright dirty green, then a brown green. I mixed black, the "Peapod" shade in Studio Sculpey, and silver. I shaped the black blobs then layed strips of clay over to give it that ridge effect, then made the eyes with translucent clay mixed with color and after baking I painted them with glaze so they'd be shiny.

25  Elephant pendant for a friend in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by rachelbunny on: June 14, 2010 09:35:03 PM
My friend's birthday is coming up and she specifically asked for an elephant face. I'm no good with animals usually but I studied a picture really hard as I made it. I quite like how it turned out. The eyes are tiny clear crystals I bought at a miniature show.

26  Maryland pendant with stone set over my birthplace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by rachelbunny on: May 22, 2010 07:21:06 PM

So I have been looking for pendant like this for 5-6 years. In stores and online and in local Maryland giftshops. Nothing. So when I took my metalsmithing class I had this in mind for my 2nd project. I cut the silver, layed on a paper cutout of Maryland, cut it with a jewelers saw, made and soldered on the jump rings, set the cubic zirconia over the Annapolis area(where I was born. I was born in April and my birthstone is a diamond but a CZ is more reasonable Cheesy), and buffed it, then found a silver chain at Michaels. Having a necklace like this was so important to me since I plan on moving far away soon.

In stages of progress

27  Barbie cameo necklace for a friend in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by rachelbunny on: May 10, 2010 06:56:24 PM

So my friend/co-worker knew of my clay abilities and she asked me to make something. Apparently she saw this Tarina Tarantino necklace at a store awhile back but wasn't gonna pay the crazy price for it.

She just wanted the basic Barbie silhouette on the heart with rhinestones. I sketched a picture and she approved.

Her name is Victoria btw Tongue I thought putting her name in the fashion of "Barbie" was a good idea. I mixed hot pink polymer clay with white and some silver shimmery clay. I shaped the heart, cut a black circle and pale purple one, printed out a barbie pic, cut it out and layed it over some white clay, then stuck it on. I made indents on the purple clay with 2.5 mm Swarovski crystals so I knew where to place them after baking.

Then I found some velvet ribbon at the craft store and used ribbon clamps. I love how it turned out and I think she'll love it as well.

28  Sterling silver and amethyst ring in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by rachelbunny on: May 02, 2010 04:04:31 PM

I recently started a metalworking class. This is my first completed project. I did everything; cut the silver, used a torch on it, hammered it around a mandrel to make it round, ran it through a texturizer, domed it, soldered the inner lining, set the amethyst, and buffed it. I'm also a size 3 on my ring finger so it's nice to have something that actually fits it. Grin

These 3 are pics of the ring in progress

29  Tiny box of marshmallow bunny peeps in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by rachelbunny on: April 23, 2010 07:05:54 PM
I still need to print out a tiny Peeps logo to glue on the flap. Then I'll wrap some plastic to make it more realistic. Does anyone know how and what program to shrink down pics?

30  Tiny box of French macaroons magnet in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by rachelbunny on: March 21, 2010 08:13:56 PM
Made this for my aunt. She bought the family these horrible macaroons from a pastry shop in California. No one liked them but she was so excited to serve them. My mom thought it would be cute for me to make her magnet.
