The Haitian dancer is ready. Of polymer clay, you can sculpt not only funny toys. With the help of plastic, the wizards create surprisingly realistic dolls, which differ in appearance from people only in size. Sleeping baby. Before work it is better to stock up several photos of babies, and to consult with them during molding. It will take:
- Baked polymer clay in pink color;
- A set of stacks for working with polymer clay (can be replaced by dental instruments);
- Gloves (not to leave prints on the hand-made);
The wire is suitable for both steel and copper. In order not to get injured while working, it is better to bend it with a loop. Head.
To bend a loop on the end of a wire and to wind a ball from a foil. You need to squeeze the ball as tightly as possible. The diameter should not exceed 3 - 4 cm.
