Absolutely non Sylvanian post^^

Dear Readers,

today my post won't feature any Sylvanians. I hope you don't mind.
I made an old Egyptian looking bracelet today (I LOVE old Egypt^.^), by using polymer clay. It turned out quiet good I think and that's the cause why I wanted to show it to you. 

Here's the finished result (with my typical Egyptian skin :D):


If you want to rework such a bracelet (Maybe for the next costume party?), I also took some step by step photos. I think they're self explaining, but here are a few explanations/tips:

- It's important to use a soft polymer clay, like FIMO soft. The bracelet needs to stay flexible. Also take care you use new clay... I made a try with older FIMO and the poor bracelet got destroyed *cries*
- You can use finished golden clay, but I recommend to use a gold metallic powder for the shiny look. I think it looks a bit more realistic. 
- The tin really is important, because it helps to keep the round form while baking. I highly recommend using one!


You need:
- FIMO (gold or other colour, if you use powder + other colours if you want add "gemstones")
- gold metallic powder
- needle tools
- a ribbon
- a tin

So let's go:








Bake for the first time! Let the clay cool down and then add some strings (which can be baked). This helps to keep the basic shape, while you're adding the other details.




This should look like lapislazuli and coral ;).


Bake again, let it cool down and add the final ribbon. 



I hope you enjoyed the post, even if it didn't feature Sylvanians, but I promise the next one will be about the Tuxedos ;) :D. 

Have a nice weekend,

yours Kyra

  5. Fantastic job! I guess you can use clay to make anything. The color you painted on the bracelet looks awesome. I agree with Paige that you can totally open an Etsy store and sell your clay work.
