What I’ve been doing lately

Hello hello,

Also, I’m open for custom requests as of today ^^
Just send me a message if you want one.

New tools

Lately, I’ve been so in love with crafting sculptures with super sculpey that I’ve been feeling reluctant to work with all my normal clay. I think it’s because I can’t be bothered to working with such soft clay from studio sculpey and sculpey III. I still find that Fimo is okay to work with, but mostly just been crafting sculptures.

Above is wire that I bought from Daiso so I can incorporate more sturdy interiors for my sculptures. Up until now I’ve only been using foil – and occasionally  a small part of an eyepin for arms and such but now these wires can really help me stabilize my creations.

Also, I’ve started to watermark my images… can’t tell if I should create another one or just stick with this… what do you think ?

In addition to those materials, if you are just starting out I recommend you have the following:

Smooth work surface:
A lot of people use tiles, craft cutting boards or some sort of ceramic or glass surface. I use a small little ceramic plate that I found at my dollar store. That’s the stripey background you see a lot in my tutorials.

Pastels & Acrylic paint:
These are very important when you are making miniatures. The pastels will help you add that extra realistic detail you can’t achieve with polymer clay alone.
If you make sculptures then Acrylic paint is for painting your sculpture instead of using coloured sculpey which can get burnt or collect fingerprints/dust when you work on it a lot.

Tools:

-Needle Tool – At first you could use toothpicks and needles but please invest in a needle tool, it will save you a lot of time.
-Razor blade – I use long ones and short ones. Also invest in a precision razor blade tool
-Toothbrush – For texture
– Aluminium foil – You can use these for making the interior of clay sculptures or for textures
-Sand paper – Fine sandpaper so you can sand down creations
-Embossing tool / rounded tool – This is really helpful for blending or just sculpting in general
Molding putty  This is not necessarily needed but when you make things in bulk, this is helpful to have. Also you can use this to take texture from real life items and make the clay duplicate. This is quite expensive though( esp in New Zealand)
Wire – This is is only if you are thinking about making sculptures. This just allows you to create a more sturdy base structure
– Pliers – For cutting eyepins, shaping wire etc

Quick update + my instagram

Hihi,

Ok so, my exams will all be completed in three weeks time, in which I will finally start crafting again!

So far, I have about 4-5 unfinished sculptures just hanging around and I usually don’t post anything up until they’re baked + painted + glazed.

Because of that, my blog posts aren’t that frequent, so I created an instagram for those who do wish to keep track of my progress and personal life.  I would separate my personal life and  crafting into two separate accounts but it just feels too tedious to me, so I guess you can use this instagram to get to know me better too ^^.

Feel free to follow me and tag  me in any of your own creations that you have made following my tutorials ^^
I would love to see them !!

Thanks for reading and waiting !
