ONE TUTORIAL A DAY FOR 31 DAYS – DAY 19 OF MY JOURNEY – LET’S PLAY

DSC_0347

You must never forget to play. It’s by playing that you enhance your creativity. And you start to see things in a different angle. Because I consider there are interesting textures everywhere, I start seeing interesting textures in all the object that surround me. For instance, my son’s toy crocodile : one little toy and so many textures to play with.

My advice to you and to myself is : don’t be so serious, play a little, experiment more and see life through your inner child’s eyes.

Materials and tools : white Fimo Professional Polymer clay, a crocodile toy, a texture plate, a square cutter, pastel colors, varnish, the pasta machine, black acrylic paint.

I have conditioned the clay. I have rolled it through the pasta machine through a thinner setting. I have used a cuff pattern to cut the shape I wanted to have for the bracelet.

I have textured the back using a texture plate.

I have started to cut squares with the cutter.

I started using the crocodile toy to make different textures on the squares.

I started to apply the squares on the cuff (pressing gently) like in an patchwork pattern (one next to the other or even one slightly over the other).

I have made some dots (with a toothpick) around some of the squares to have like a sewing line pattern. I have made my favorite biscuit-like pattern all around the cuff.

It’s time for pastel flashy colors!

I have colored the back as well.

I have put it on a soda can (to get a round shape) and put it in the oven.

I have applied Fimo varnish (front and back) and then I have applied a layer of black acrylic paint on the exterior of the cuff, then I removed it with a baby wipe.

Then I have varnished the cuff with Triple Thick Varnish.

So, don’t forget to play and open your eyes: tools and inspiration are everywhere!
