A tutorial from Clay and Paint in Belgium

Clay and Paint (Cernit) company sends me tutorials to share. I have been a little overwhelmed with my life and learning another thing just seemed too much for me at the time!

I got in to my blogs and everything had drastically changed in my blog world. All the things that I had gotten so good at had completely changed.

My brain just said no!

Well I am trying again, if you are willing to bear with me, I will get this stuff again!

Anyway here I go!

Enjoy!

Blast from the past part 2- Cloisonne type beads

Cloisonne type beads

These are very easy beads and quite fun to make, this was published in November of 2008 in this blog.

It was published in a magazine before this, I believe 2004.

I love these and they are easy and very fun to make.

Have a great week you all!

Blast from the past- 1st installment BPCanes

It is way too hot to take pictures. I was thinking that some of my content in the beginning of my blogging adventure was pretty cool, so sort of like summer re-runs on TV, I am going to re-post some of these babies that I really like.

Silence on a radio, no picture and sound on a TV, and no words on a blog are always a little disconcerting.

May your summer be cool.

May your drinks be cooler,

and may your heart be content.

Blessings all over all ya all!!

Just a note: Bead Space is no longer a viable link, but bead patterns are readily available all over the web!

Extruder Canes with Bead Patterns as a guide

I put up the color mixing chart yesterday for this project!

Millefiori is the glass technique of bundling or layering colored rods of glass together to form images and then cutting the cross section of the bundled or layered glass to get a little tile of an image. These colored rods of glass are called canes. I have seen this technique duplicated in many mediums, ceramic, candy, food, and polymer clay, and it can sometimes seem almost impossible to achieve, but if you start with basic design, bulls eye canes, open spirals and checkerboards just to name a few, you can combine those to make more intricate pictures or images, called advanced caning. Anytime two or more simple patterns are combined it becomes advanced. I have found a way to make intricate canes that is so easy to do, yet gives the impression of intricacy and complication. Bead patterns and a Makin’s Clay extruder are great for attempting this.

Picture this!!

I found these little frames, which are actually slide holders.

These look great in scrap books.

I used them for templates and made some clay frames which can also be used in scrapbooks, made in to jewelry, or magnets.

What about Christmas ornaments with pictures in them?

You will need:

Cernit Biscuit, White, or Opaque white (You can use other colors, I just used these for these pictures)

Clay machine

Clay slicing blade

Exacto-type blade

Textures

Pinata inks

Slide frames

small stencil brush

Metallic inks (brilliance, MicaMagic, these heat set and are permanent)

All links above lead to my husband’s on-line store, the Clay Factory, as always thank you for looking

Condition and roll out your clay on the 3rd thickest setting in your clay machine.

Lay the slide frame on the clay and trace around it cutting with your blade.

I have better luck cutting with a exacto type blade on the inside of the frame.

You can stipple with a stiff stencil brush.

Put on a little Pinata alcohol ink.

Then add another color and daub with a paper towel to blend (Kind of) ;-D

You can bake this one just like this or…

Stamp with gold metallic ink and bake. Tah-dah frame done! Scrapbook and flexible frames.

What about a necklace?

I will play with this later for ya!

Here is another way. Roll out the sheet of clay and then roll through with a piece of lace fabric to texture.

Cut out frame from this sheet.

Highlighted with Distress ink so you can see the texture. This wonderful ink (love for my cards) is not the best to use with Polymer clay, it really never dries and will rub off. Great for step by photos though, YAY!

Here it is colored with another metallic ink and then blushed with a gold ink to further accent.

Bake and go! That scrapbook is waiting. Also you can glue to the cover or paper with a small bead of glue along each side and the bottom and you will be able to slip a small photo in and out of it when the glue has dried..

Here is another way. Roll out your clay on the above setting and then roll through with a texture plate.

Ink and bake.

Back with more on this later.

Happy Tuesday, ya’ll.

Have a great week, go play now!

I love you to the moon and back!!

Let’s talk Turkey!

Gobble, Gobble!!

I thought it would be fun to have a tutorial on a simple turkey.

This could be made in to a magnet or pin.

You will need:

Caramel Cernit

Opaque White Cernit

Poppy red Cernit just a pinch

Orange Cernit

Black Cernit just a pinch

Clay Machine

Clay Slicing Blade

Bamboo skewer

Sun like cutter from Flowers and leaves Makin’s clay cutter set

5/16″ Kemper Kutter flower

3/4″ Kemper Kutter Round

Condition Opaque White clay and roll out in the clay machine on the 4th thickest setting. You can roll through the machine several times to get a nice smooth sheet.

Cut out one of the sun “like” shaped cutters and lay on work surface.

Condition and roll out the caramel on the 3rd thickest setting. Cut out one of the sun “Like” shapes.

Place the caramel one on top of the white one and off set it so the whites points show between the Caramel points.

Flatten the two together with the palm of your hand, preferably the rounded cup of your palm.

Cut out two circles of Caramel out of the round 3/4″ cutter. Put them together and roll into a ball. Then using your forefinger roll on one side of the ball and rolling in to a bowling pin shape.

Like so!

With the back of the clay blade (careful now!) Make a mark about 1/8″ to 1/4″ down from the top of the small end of clay bowling pin shape.

Bend the tip over at the mark.

Place the bowling pin caramel shape on the  two cut out sun “like” shapes and press the thicker end to the shapes like you see in the picture.

Make marks with the end of your blade around the turkey body where the indents are around the outside of the sun points in the brown flower/sun are. This step is optional, but does add a little more to the turkey.

Roll out the orange clay on the 2nd thickest setting and cut out two of the 5/16″ flower.

Push them out of the cutter and pinch two of the petals of the flower together.

Place the flowers that are now feet, with the pinched petals in the back,under the thick flattened end of the bowling pin caramel shape.

Cut out another flower shape.

We are just going to use this for the size, so roll that flower in to a little ball.

Roll on one side of the ball  to shape it in to a shape it in to a little teardrop.

Just like this.

Place this little teardrop thick end first on the end of the bowling pin caramel top of the bowling pin.

You will able to see it in the picture after I put the eyes on.

Roll out a very small coil of black and cut off a tiny, tiny section.

Cut two of them and roll them into balls.

They a will be very small, like a 1/16″.

Here is the placement of eyes and beak.

Now we are going to make the pieces for the waddle. Roll out a small coil of the poppy red.

Cut off  two short pieces and one long one.

Roll them all in to balls and then roll them in to elongated teardrops.

Place one of the two small ones on top of the head.

Then place the other.

You can see where the red pieces go, here.

Looking a little like a turkey now.

Poke two holes in the beak, so he can breathe.

With the side of the flower cutter mark the chest with marks for feathers.

Like this.

 Use the flowers cutter and cut out four flowers  out of the caramel sheet that is rolled out on the 3rd thickest setting.

Put two together and roll in to a ball.

Do that with the other two.

Roll those into teardrops.

Flatten those teardrops.

With the back of the blade mark both wings on the tips.

Now mark the wings with the flower cutter and mark horizontal marks on the tips too.

Place the wings on the thick end of the body.

Your turkey is done.
