Lessons of polymer clay are not limited to any framework. Fantasy plays as it pleases, and the hands do what is required.
Create a beautiful decoration of polymer clay with your own hands - lesson
In today's lesson, we will try to consider one of the popular decorations, with which we can develop our own modeling skills and, of course, improve the appearance.
- Polymer clay
- Latex gloves
- Lanka (rope)
We form beads from ice! Using small strips, we make the processtwisting, there is no definite order. Tube cut into several, and then using a toothpick - we make the trimming. In order to avoid fingerprints, it is best to use rubber gloves. We have special beads. They should be baked in the oven, and then processed with a varnish-plastic (nail polish is not suitable). Their translucent appearance gives the accessory a special refinement. Beads look like small ice cubes. Therefore, in the future we will call them beads with ice. Beaded Beads Next, we produce special beads. For them you will need a special material - potal. It can be bought at the store. Potal is a sheet of foil made from a thin layer. We take clay of blue color and arrange them in pieces according to the parameter of translucent and pearly type. Clay can be torn off, and then you can use scraps of a different color. After that, we impose on them potal. After that, use the rolling pin to roll out the product. Potal will crack, creating arbitrary shapes of drawings. After that, the beads must be rolled up and made holes in them - holes for the "thread". Our work with the decoration of beads is completed, we will start creating the product. Preparing an enhancement In order to collect such beads, we needA special cable (lanca) on which we will fasten our product, as well as a fastener for its completion. On the wire it is necessary to plant all our beads. Some add their bead solutions, try using metal-type beads in the form of rhombuses. Next, we put the crimps on and put the fasteners on. Then, we return our lanca to the crimp and afterwards, by clamping the crimp with the help of pliers, we cut off the unnecessary piece of the rope bandage. Next, the tip is planted in the crimp of the second side and also clamps these elements. Our product is ready!
