Oh gosh, I haven't been on here in ages! It's been so long I had to remember how to post.  Cheesy

Anywho, I've finally gotten around to playing with Polymer Clay, so far just Super Sculpey that was generously donated to me by a friend. These are a few of my first projects and of course they are tiny (is obsessed with tiny things).

The Sweets, pictured here on my Re-Ment set:
- Donuts
- Raspberry filled cookies
- A raspberry (it's teeny, tiny)
- Sucker
- Blue bubble gum ice cream
- Wrapped candies
- Cherry tart
(I also pictured the trio of mushrooms but I'll be putting them in a separate post)

All of the figures were painted with acrylics after baking and I'm fairly pleased with how they came out.

Here's a few detail shots:

I decided against molding the stick out of clay and just cut a length of wire to fit, covering it with acrylic paint before gluing it to the sucker.

And this has to be my favorite even though I think it took me longer than the rest of the figures. Cheesy The raspberry was made by rolling teeny, tiny spheres of clay and then adding them to a bigger base... needless to say it took a while. >.>
If anyone can let me know a quicker way to do it please let me know. Grin

I'm looking forward to making more tiny things! Thanks for looking. ;3

My only question...how in the world do you make such teeny weeny things!?
« Reply #5 on: August 08, 2012 07:11:42 PM »

The easiest thing I have done for blackberries/raspberries is to glue layers of itsy bitsy teensy beads (hole free microbeads work well but you have to sort them out so that you have some that are about the same size) to a toothpick. Then once that is dry, make a mold of the bead clusters with amazing mold putty or something similar. Once the mold has set, remove the original and add a tiny ball of clay into your new mold and bake. Make sure your mold material is something that can be baked or heated so that you can bake the raspberries in it. Then pop them out once the mold has cooled. I made several clusters at a time and make one mold with a bunch of raspberry wells in it. Super easy.

The first thing I noticed was the mushrooms, so cute! It made me think of an alice in wonderland style tea party with all those sweets and cute little mushrooms
