Orchid is an amazing flower. According to the beliefs of the Maori tribes, the orchid turned out of small fragments of the rainbow. Due to this, petals have such rich and bright coloring. The ancient Greeks believed that this flower turned a shoe of the goddess of love Aphrodite, seized with passion. In this article, we will create this tropical beauty from polymer clay, as the main element of the ring. Plastic is a wonderful material for creativity. It has a wide color palette, which can not be better suited for creating such a whimsical and bright beauty, like an orchid. Jewelery and bijouterie hand-made now on the wave of popularity. Therefore, such a ring will be especially relevant. Ring "Orchid" from baked polymer clay. It is necessary:
- Thermoplastic medium and dark purple, yellow, pink;
- Stationery knife;
- Acrylic violet paint;
- Stack on the end with a ball;
- Pasta machine or acrylic rolling pin for plastic (you can take a glass bottle);
- Preparation of a ringlet made of metal;
- Mold petals of orchids;
- Varnish for plastics.
Petals. First, draw on the paper patterns for the petals. We cut out. You need samples of a large round petal, a smaller oval and figured core. Take the clay dark purple (lilac) andpink flowers. We knead separately each and form brusochki. Now cut out from the diagonal, but not in half, but somewhere at an angle of 60 °. We take dark purple pieces and combine them with pink ones. Now we have two brusochka in which there are both colors. We have them dark side to each other (see photo) and rolled in paste-machine several times for an even transition of colors. We got a ribbon with a beautiful gradient. Pink edges and purple middle. Fold the workpiece with an accordion. Gently with fingers, squeeze it into a drop-shaped cane in a cut shape so that the pink outer sides touch the sharp edge. A wide base turned purple. Cut our cane into pieces. Need 5. Take our templates and fingers equal the shape of the cutting with the shape of the petals. The orchid has two large round, three small oval petals. We now put our blanks on the mold and roll, creating a texture of the veins of the petal of the orchid. If you do not have the right mold, you can simply press the grooves with a needle or toothpick. We bend the petals, like a real orchid. Fold them in the following way: first three small oval petals. On top, we have 2 large rounds in staggered order with respect to the first layer of petals. Heart. Take an equal amount of yellow and light purple clay and make a gradient. At us yellow smoothly passes in violet. On this layer we lay the core of the core and cut it with a knife. A bit of a thermoplastic pink color roll inthin flagellum. We fix it on the contour of our core. Make it a ball on the end of the stacks. The edge at us is formed wavy. A little bend and draw streaks with a needle or toothpick. They are best pushed, not cut, so the grooves are more accurate. We fix the middle of the petals and makestack the notch in the center. We take a yellow plastic, a piece smaller than a pea, we press a furrow and attach it to the notch of the middle of the flower. Finally we correct the waviness of the petals and send it to the oven. The temperature and baking time are indicated on the packaging. After the orchid has cooled, take a toothpick and blue acrylic paint and draw a dot along the middle of the orchid. We cover with varnish and let it dry. To the base-ring we glue our orchid with the help of instant glue. That's what happened.
