How to make a brooch in the form of a Christmas tree made of polymer clay - a lesson and a master class
The main symbol of the winter holiday is Spruce or Pine,or in the common people "Yolochka", which is very popular among all people. We love to give gifts to our close people and, therefore, are also ready to spend our own time to give an unforgettable souvenir to our native person. To make a brooch for him is a very unique and special choice, which can be performed by means of polymer clay. Materials to create a brooch brooch with your own hands - what do you need? The special properties of a viscous material, which is easy to bake, is to recreate any shape and various objects. Clay can be processed in various ways, so creating a brooch made of polymer clay will not be too difficult for us. How to make a similar clay? You can buy it, or make it out of improvised materials of home use (test, for example). Consider a list of the necessary components, as well as tools for processing clay:
- Take the polymer clay in green color design
- Prepare liquid clay in the form of gel
- It will take a brush
- Also need to have acrylic paint
- bouillon with different shades
- rolling pin
- Basis for brooch
- Glue gun
- Glue type "thermo"
So, we have collected all the necessary material andNow we are ready to start the main work related to the creation of the skeleton of the future craft. The work will consist of three stages. Stage one is the creation of the foundation. The second stage - decorating with a needle base. The third stage - decorating and finishing our crafts. To begin with, we make all the actions in order,to soften the composition of the plastic with a green tint to prepare the necessary layer in a thickness of 1 to 1.5 millimeters, using a paste machine, and a rolling pin. Then, draw the surface using a needle. Draw the silhouette of the future spruce to cut it with a scalpel. Further, the process of the main work begins - it is necessary to make needles on the future herringbone. To begin with, it is necessary to prepare thin strips, using green shades. Needles for herringbone The formation of these strips occurs so thatevery ending of such a strip created an effect of constriction and looked like a needle. They need to be cut using the main strip and endings with a tip at a length of 5-7 millimeters. They fit in an arbitrary form on the shape of spruce. The needles fit along the edge, and then move to the central part. Further, it is necessary to lay the needle in such a way,so that the upper parts cover the bases of the lower spines. But, it needs to be done in such a way that there are no voids and gaps that can be noticeable. Places for the joint of the upper needle with the base also need to be concealed by proper overlapping. When these works are finished, we place our artwork in the oven, before the full firing process. After the firing is complete, the needles need to be decorated. The process of decorating a Christmas tree is a completely creative process, followed by a master craftsman. We offer our own solution, which is great for decorating this frame. However, you can supplement it with your own idea or solution. Decoration of the Christmas tree We decorate the needles with white acrylic paint. This will allow us to simulate a light snow. After that, we take a liquid plastic and a fine-colored brush, in order to apply small drops of gel to our Christmas tree in order to attach one broth to each drop. We try to make the bouillon in large quantities, but in different shades. After, we re-fired our Christmas tree, in accordance with the instructions from the manufacturer of polymer clay. After completing all the firing operations, the rearparts of the product we fix the base of metal, so that we have the opportunity to use the product as a brooch. Epoxy glue, or gun-glue is suitable for this task. It turns out a beautiful hand-made fir tree, which can be worn or used as a Christmas decoration!
