Little mermaid under the sea
Step 1: Little Mermaid Under the Sea, Made With Polymer Clay
Materials used in this project:
- Polymer clay (Fimo)
- Aluminium foil
- Aluminium wire (1 mm)
Step 2: Little Coral Reef
Starting with a polymer clay base and aluminium foil as structure
Next, adding texture to create the stone effect
The toothpick is used to hold the mermaid and prevent her from falling.
To finish the base I added some elements to recreate the coral reef
Making the mermaid's body
The aluminium wire, with a curved shape, is the stucture of her body and tail. It will hold her in position and will be flexible enough to make some adjustments later.
For the hair, I covered the head with a thin layer of clay to hide the skin color and added a few hair strands
I've placed a wire structure over the figurine to hold the rest of the hair strands. This way is possible to create some movement effect.
After that is time to bake it in the oven, during 30 minutes at 110°C/230°F The wire that suspends the hair also goes into the oven with the figurine.
