- plastic of any color (in this case we will use red and purple plastic);
- smooth surface for work;
- knife stationery;
- rings for trinkets;
- small pliers and rolling pin.
First you need to cut a bit of plastic and stretch it well with a good hand. Roll a smooth ball, then use a rolling pin to roll a circle. The thickness of the resulting circle should beuniform, identical from all sides. With the help of a needle, indicate the contour of the figure of the future key fob. In this case it is a heart that consists of two parts. Then cut off any excess and unnecessary pieces of material with a stationery knife. In order to easily separate both halves of the heart, also, you can use a knife. Now it's time to use a different color material, I have a purple one. It is still necessary to roll it out. One half of the red heart should be transferred to a purple plastic. To ensure that the details are slightly sealed together, you need to press them, for example, a glass. Draw the outline of a single heart and cut off all unnecessary. If you want, you can add variousdecorative elements. Do not forget about the hole for the key fob. The most important work has already been done. Now it's time to burn our key chain until it becomes solid. Polymer clay is of many kinds. So, for everyone there is an instruction, that is, rules of baking and so on. Be sure to stick to them! At the time when the product will harden, you can coat it with varnish. Suitable building varnish for wood. If desired, you can paint the keychain with acrylic paint or add various decor elements. It all depends on you and on your imagination. Heart-souvenir. For work you will need:
- polymer clay (color take it at your discretion);
- transparent building lacquer;
- sequins (you can use them for manicure);
- accessories (depends on what you want to do).
In this case, the color of the clay was taken pink, butit absolutely does not matter, it all depends on your preferences. Take a small piece of clay, mash in your hands and roll it out so that the thickness is medium. Pass the rest through the extruder. If you do not have it, pass the clay through garlic, but the sausages can get too thick. For a magnet they fit, but for jewelry is unlikely. Also, you can try rolling the sausages by hand. Of course, this is more difficult, especially since they must be uniform, but it is quite realistic. After the previous stage of work was done, the resulting tubes should be twisted. To do this, take two sausages and start to roll counter-clockwise. Spirals, which you have turned out, start spreading on previously rolled clay. Try to arrange them in such a way that small loops are produced. Spirals need to alternate, for example, one is twisted in one direction, the other in the other direction. This is required to obtain a pattern. After that, when the whole pattern is laid out, cut outa heart. On the edges of the product you can lay out another spiral, only it must be even thinner than the previous one. Thanks to her, the product will look much more accurate. The following actions are entirely dependent onWhat crafts do you want to get in the end? If you want a pendant, then with a toothpick or a thick needle, for example, make a small hole or insert the fittings. Now it's time to start baking or cooking the product, if desired. If you chose the second option, then lower your product into boiling water and cook it in the area of ten minutes. If you want to make a brooch, then you need to roll out a small square piece of clay. Put the gel on the back of the heart, glue the pin, square and cook again. In that case, when your choice was a magnet, then it's time to attach it. Then sprinkle your heart with sequins and cover it with varnish. Your gift for the day of lovers of polymer clay with your own hands is ready.
