Introduction: Girl at the Beach- Polymer Clay

Picture of Girl at the Beach- Polymer Clay

Summer, heat, beach, pool, holidays!...

Playing with clay is very fun and it can be an excelent activity for any time of the year! :D

Step 1:

Sometimes images worth more than words... watching the video can help you to understand all the following steps

Step 2:

Picture of

Make an aluminium foil and cover it with polymer clay.

Apply some decorations to your ball. I've just added some polymer clay dots with different colors.

Insert a toothpick in the center of the ball. This will be the figurine structure and will prevent it from falling

Step 3:

I use another toothpick to make the doll's body. Once the body is shaped, transfer it to the toothpick in the ball.

The legs are made with 2 long cone shapes, and the structure is a piece of aluminium wire. The aluminium wire will prevent the legs from deforming when the piece is in the oven

Step 4:

Now it's time to give our girl a nice bikini, the arms and feet! :D

Step 5:

With simple shapes you can give your figurine a very expressive look and even personality!

Once the work is done you need to bake the piece to cure the polymer clay.

I use fimo soft in this project. The recommended time in the oven is 30 minutes, at 110°C/230°F If you use other brands you need to see the specifications in the package.

Step 6:

After baking, fill the goggles with Fimo liquid and bake it again. Or you can use the heat gun to cure the liquid fimo (In this case keep a safe distance to prevent your piece from burning)
