Jewelry made of polymer clay. Master Class
30 years ago, a new art form was born in Japan - the production of floral arrangements andpolymer clay jewelry. This is an unusually malleable material that does not require firing, freezes in the air. Five years ago, this art came to Russia. Enthusiasts have created a workshop and a school of ceramic floristics FLEUR. They began by inviting a master from Japan, a specialist who introduced several artists of the team to the basics of ceramic floristry. When creating compositions, they use special polymer clay developed in Japan specifically for the art of ceramic floristry. Due to its special properties, it allows you to achieve extraordinary subtlety, naturalism of the work performed. Jewelry made of polymer clay look "alive", sophisticated, light, airy. The art of ceramic floristry is available to people with the most varied level of training - today, many decorate their home with fabulous flower arrangements made of polymer clay. Polymer Clay Crafts
With the help of a master class by masters of the FLEUR school, you can make a polymer clay jewelry yourself - a branch of a blossoming sakura.
1. We take a thin wire. Cut a small piece of wire with pliers and bend a small loop at the end.
2. Take a small piece ceramic clay, flatten it (as shown in the figure) and fasten it to the end of the wire with a loop. Then we take a small bunch of stamens (4−5 pieces), cut off the upper part and fasten the stamens to the wire. Set to dry.
3. Add a little white paint to the clay piece (SONET oil paint whitewashed zinc) and mix thoroughly. After the clay has acquired a uniform white color, it is best to put it in a plastic bag, without air. So ceramic clay retain its plastic properties longer.
4. For further work, we need a small piece of clay, the size of a pea. Take it in your hand and give it a droplet shape. From the wide part, cut a drop into two parts.
Flatten the two resulting parts. After that, cut them into 5 identical petals. Give the petals the desired shape using the main stack. Gently roll up the edges of the petals with a stack.
5. Take a stack with a ball and give each petal a volume, slightly pressing.
6. Carefully thread the wire with stamens through the middle of the resulting flower.
7. By the same principle, still unopened sakura flowers are molded. In order to get a sakura bud we take a small piece of ceramic clay, give it the desired shape and make light cuts with scissors along the length of the bud.
In order to make sepals, we take a piece of clay, add a little green and brown oil paint to it and mix thoroughly.
8. Take a small piece of clay and make an elongated drop from it. We cut the droplet into 4 parts, roll out each part and thread through the wire.
9. The stem is carefully covered with the same clay from which the sepals were made. We set to dry our flowers.
10. After drying, we can tint our flowers, giving them a more natural look
11. We collect our flowers in a full twig. You can fasten them together using a floral teip tape. Place taping tape is easy to hide under the clay. Tint the stem.
And you can admire your work!
