Tutorial : Adventure time in a frame

Hello my reader :D

Today’s post was meant to be on the other gaming consoles, but someone requested the chibi from my Adventure time frame, so here it is how I made the whole thing….ahaha..^^.

This tutorial is faily simple, and you can basically replace the characters with whoever you want.

——

Before you start, you’ll need some sort of photo frame. Except my one has a large gap on the inside. I’m not sure what its’ original purpose was for … ^^;;
Paint the outside with whatever you want (in my case, LSP colours), and then glaze.

Now for the characters…

—–

Materials

MaterialsFinn:

  • Light blue
  • Dark blue
  • White
  • Skin colour ( White + little bit of pink + little bit of orange)

Jake

  • Yellow

Other character (which is my friend. Use any colour you want)

  • Black
  • Skin colour
  • Dark olive green

Other

  • Brown
  • Purple
  • Light tan
  • Green
  • Hot glue gun
  • Acrylic paint

Making Finn

  • You will need three different sized blobs of clay: Light blue (largest), White (second to largest) and dark blue (smallest)
  • Make them into cylinder shapes and stick them on top of each other.
  • To make sure they all stick together seamlessly, just roll it a little bit. Not too much.
  • Using any tool, make an indent of where Finn’s face will be.
  • Then take a small blob of skin coloured clay, and fill that hole.
  • Smooth out any uneven edges.
  • Roll out a white log and cut the rounded edges – these are Finn’s ears
  • Attach and blend onto his hat.

Making Jake

  • Now for jake, separate the yellow into two. One for the body and tiny blob for details (ears and jowls)
  • For this, simply roll out a log. I placed it next to Finn to make sure they end up being around the same size.
  • Flatten, and make the bottom edge straight.
  • Attach ears and his jowls

Chibi

 

  • For the chibi , I stuck a skin coloured blob onto a rectangular blob of green
  • I flattened them together and cut out a collar from the excess green.
  • I dotted a pocket, and added some details on to the jacket.

Chicbi 2

  • For the hair, roll black clay into a long-ish strip. It needs to be long enough to wrap around the chibis’ head.
  • Cut the bottom edge of the clay so it’s straight for the bangs. (fringe)
  • Using your razor blade, make hair patterns onto it.
  • Now, cut the bangs to size. Cut it so that it wraps around the head of your chibi + the top of the head
  • Then with excess clay, roll it out again.
  • Cut it to the length you want the hair to be, and attach it onto the rest of the chibi’s head.
  • Blend away any visible edges.

LSP

  • I forgot to take picture for LSP but basically, roll out the purple into small blobs.
  • Make an outline with the blobs, fill in the middle and blend away allllll the edges. (Like the second image)
  • Then you’re done ^^

All characters

  • Here are all of the characters.
  • They have been baked, and mostly painted. You can see that Jake still needs his eyes ^^;;
  • GRass

 

  • Now for presenting them, place the three main characters you want onto a blob of green
  • Add some patterns into it using a rounded tool
  • Then take the characters out, and bake the green.
  • Once it is out of the oven, cool it and then use some glue to stick the characters back into the indents you made from pushing them in.

Background

  • Using hot glue, I stuck LSP and the waving snail onto the background piece.

Completed

 

  • Hot glue the characters into the frame, and place the background in ^^

And you’re done !

Ofc, you can replace whatever you want into this frame. The characters are all super easy to make so get creative !

I hope this was helpful ^^

Tutorial : Gaming series (Nintendo 64 controller)

Hello,,

This is the other part of the tutorial. They are short, so two will be uploaded at one time :D

Here is the Nintendo 64 controller !

—-

Materials

Materials

  • Three shades of grey (Light grey, grey, dark grey)
  • Blue clay
  • Red
  • yellow clay

Basic shape

  • Split the clay into three : One larger one and two smaller ones.
  • Take the main shade of grey, and just like the Gamecube controller, roll out the main shape.
  • To make it a little less round, just use something with a straight edge and push the clay inward.
  • Take a bit of clay and roll it out into a log. The length should be the same as your controller.
  • Place it on top and flatten.

Completed shape

 

  • For that middle part, roll out the last piece of grey into a sabre tooth shape.
  • Place it in the middle of the controller
  • Flatten the top half, and CAREFULLY blend the edges down. Make sure when you place it , it has that little bit sticking out the top.

Completed

 

  • Taking a rounded tool, make an indent where the arrow pad will go.
  • Roll out the darkest grey thinly and cut out the arrow pad.
  • Place it in the dent you made.
  • Stick on the rest of the details

Bake + glaze

And you’re done ! Another easy one right ?
The next ones that will be posted are even easier…..

Tutorial : Gaming Series (Gamecube controller)

Hey guys !

Sorry it’s been so long since my last tutorial ! So far they have only been updates right ? -ah =”=
As you know, I didn’t manage to make a lot during my break, so that means I haven’t got a whole heap of tutorials lined up. I’ve also been into making random objects (like controllers, clay in the mini glass bottle), so you probably won’t be seeing a lot of “food” themed posts.

However, if you do have a request, please feel free to comment ^^ I’ll just add it to the list of things to make haha,,

Anyways. Since they are quite short, I’ll post two up at a time.

Go go go !

Materials

Materials for Game cube remote

  • Purple
  • Blue
  • White
  • Red
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Olive green
  • Mixing Colours
  • My purple wasn’t the right shade so I mixed the blue in.
  • Cut a small amount out – this will be for the buttons
  • Mix that part ¬†with some white until you get the right shade. That second image proportion is inaccurate ahaha…

BasicShape

  • Before you use the purple, take a little bit out and leave it for the details.
  • Then, roll the bigger blob into a log-except do this to the ends only. You want the middle to be thicker.
  • Bend the log into the shape of a horse shoe and flatten.
  • Using that blob you took out, roll out and flatten 4 circles. Two larger than the other two.
  • Blend the edges.

Buttons

  • Take the two pieces and place it where its’ meant to go.
  • Roll out that light purple THINLY. The thickness depends on how big your controller is, but in my case – super thin.
  • Carefully cut out the arrow pad (is that what it’s called ?)

Completed

  • Place on the arrow pad.
  • Take another blob of purple, and place it above the arrow pad
  • Blend that blob until it’s just a bump.
  • Take the lighter purple and place it on top of that bump.
  • Place the rest of the details on.

Bake and you’re done ! :D

Done

There you go ! It’s really easy once you get the basic shape down,, if need one, always have a reference image nearby for accuracy !

 

Thanks for reading!

More adventure time !

Hellloo my reader ^^

So about two weeks ago, it was my friend’s birthday. She LOVES adventure time, so I decided to make another themed Adventure time gift for her. (The last one I made was the Finn and Jake plush).
This is just something I made last night, (two week late gift =”= I know.. ) and I thought I’d post it on here ^^

 

AdventureTime

 

This is basically a photo frame except that it’s got a larger space inside for you to put stuff(?) in. I don’t actually know its’ purpose ahaha,,
I bought it from a hardware store for about $6.99 NZD and then painted it Lumpy space princess colours. It was going to be either purple or pink,, I’m not quite sure colour she’s meant to be.

The characters I made are Finn, Jake, the waving snail and LSP in the background. The middle one is basically her ^^
They were going to have arms and actual bodies but I decided that it would be too hard to make at 2am T__T I took a long time to think this gift out -phew-

I actually prefer this frame without that back panel. It seems like such a closed world when I put the panel in,, ah,,

On the back panel, I used those scratch on lettering sets and wrote

(Name),

Oh my glob,
Happy Lumping 17th Birthday,

Luv Cyn.

Ohoho, gotta love Lumpy space princess XD.

2

Here’s another angle of the frame. I was debating whether to attach Hot dog princess onto the top or not. I decided not to in the end.

Anyway, I just wanted to update you guys on what I made ^^

I seem to have not really made anything these holidays which is disappointing. When I get some more things sorted out, I’ll start my own Etsy store … I’m just still confused about shipping prices and such.

I’m starting school tomorrow and with exams, not too sure what charms I can get done. I will however, update you whenever and try my best to post tutorials and new things I have made though ^^

 

Thanks so much for reading !

Question ?

Hello Hello,,

So recently, I’ve been thinking about opening at Etsy store. I’ve been making all these charms for the tutorials, and a lot of the time, they’re just sitting around.
The only problem is, I don’t know how many people are willing to buy my charms, and how to calculate the shipping costs o___o.

(Why is the website so poorly made ?)

If any has any experience with selling overseas, please pm me T___T.

I looked online at NZ’s post rate finder, and the “parcel” part of it is ridiculously expensive…
I have no idea how to package and ship my items out. I worked out that in NZ, shipping would cost roughly $3.30, so that’s okay.

Im just concerned about the international part of it… should I make it so that I can just post it into the mail box ? Or should I make it into a small-ish box and send it through my post office ?

=.= ;;;

I still need to think this through,,

Thanks for reading !
