With the help of needlework you can prepare absolutelydifferent versions of gifts for any holiday. But, the needlework society especially highlights the possibility of organizing a gift for the New Year. There are a lot of unique gift variations for the New Year. Depending on the direction of the gift is determined by the choice that is suitable for a loved one. Most often, the masters distinguish among all the variations of the presents the most popular, performed on the grounds of the holiday itself. For example, fairy-tale characters that are performed on the basis of popular and interesting materials.
Gift set of figures of Santa Claus and other characters - master class
The brightest representative of the holiday and the mostthe expected fairy-tale hero for many years is Grandfather Frost! It is thanks to this hero that many children receive their own, so desired gifts. Therefore, it is necessary to have a figure of the present Grandfather Frost in his bundle to the Christmas tree, which you can use. To make such a figure is not difficult, if you use simple materials of polymer clay, as well as using cotton wool, which will serve as a decor for our product. Grandfather frost is a figurine for a house. But before we begin our work, we must determine the features of the material, as well as determine the qualities on the basis of which we will do our work. And of course, you will need a lesson in the step-by-step master class, on the basis of which we will work:
- Take the polymer clay of the color of solid shades
- You will need beads to form the eyes, or ready eyes
- Velvet fabric
- Acrylic shades of paints
- Fabric contours
- Plastic bottle
- Double-sided tape
- Glue gun
- Starch and wire
Initially, we will need to define the qualitiesthe size of our future Morozko! Our version will be formed based on the size of half a meter. We make measurements of the head, where the basic proportions of the human body will occur, they can be looked at depending on the proportions of the human body. From the head should and begin. With the help of foil it is necessary to roll material of a dense ball, which will be smaller in size than the future version of the head. On top, it should be stuck with a polymer clay in bodily color. In case you have ready-made peephole versions, that's fine. If they are not, it is best to take the beads of the appropriate size and press them in place of the eyes. If the layer of plastic on the ball wrapped in the foil was thin, then a special effort would be required to press the bead into the foil. Material preparation Beads can also be painted white. Then, we make face plastic. It will not be too difficult task if you observe proportions. It is very important to build a nose and eyes. The rest we can hide with the help of eyebrows, mustaches, beard for the grandfather. Below is a series of photos that will help you figure it out. When you get a beautiful face, suitable for the last photo, you can finish the work. The rest of the face is supplemented with cotton wool. The muzzle should be sent for baking, after baking it is necessary to sunk the nose, and also to decorate the cheeks of Grandfather Frost, so that a blush will come out and beautiful eyes will turn out. It is best to treat the eyes beforehand and color them before baking. The fact is that it is very difficult to treat the eyes without damaging the eyelids with the help of white paint. It is also worth recalling that a product made with polymer clay should be coated with a special lacquer, for this material. If this is not available, it is better to buy, or do not use varnish. Not a suitable version of the varnish may not dry out on the plastic and because of this will stick. In very short time, the work will lose its form. Procurement of the form So, we form further procurement. Take a bottle of plastic, also an adhesive tape. Our bottle turned out to be very soft and, therefore, easily deformed. In addition, she was small in height and therefore, we strengthened her with scotch tape. We wrap it in several layers. Also, we take the newspaper and in crumpled form we fix to the necessary growth of our Morozko! If the head is heavy, and the body structure is light, it is necessary to produce a weighting of the overall structure. Stuff the bottle with something heavy initially. Use stones or something else. The result is the shape of our character's blob. Then, fix the head. For this it is necessary to drill a hole specially. We fix the fixing stick on the product, and after - we paste the entire workpiece. The newspaper will be located from above, thus - the stick will easily enter the product. Further - we use a wire and we make screwing of a skeleton. Now, we begin to sculpt our product with cotton wool. Vat should be taken in rolls so that it has good quality. Then, the product will be well unwound, it will be easy to cut, and also easier to handle. We produce "kissel". To do this, dilute the starch using a small amount of water (in a cold form). Then, the product must be poured with boiling water, stirring intensively. The paste must be free of lumps. The layer of cotton should be cut. Then, spread the kissel on both sides and rewind Grandfather. Get a small form of mummy. The fur coat should not be smooth and beautiful from the first attempts. Use several layers of cotton, but do not forget to dry the product. After your starch dries, a crust is formed on the surface. It will look like paper, or something else. Vatka inside will remain as soft and fluffy. When working with cotton wool and similar paste next to it should be a lot of water. Either a sink, or a basin of water, and a towel. Each new piece should be cleaned with clean hands. A moth should form a cotton cap. Also, level the shape of the character's skull, prepare the eyebrows. From above, you can also coat the workpiece with a paste. Vatka should be smeared on all sides. Cooking hands Using a fleece wrap the entire frame of brushes, starting with the mittens. Do not be upset by what you get. A lot of work ahead of the mummy will become a real, fairy-tale character. We wait until the mummy has dried. The hands should be dried separately. After the blank dries, you can cover it with the next layer of cotton wool, the same with your hands. After you reach the volume you need - create the last layer. Here you should focus on the softness of the desired shape, its evenness. Strips of cotton wool should be fixed with a vertical fit.
