Have you ever seen all that nice and colored flatware in a store and left thinking that you wanted it but couldn't buy it because you already had too much? Here is an example.
Leaving a store thinking that you couldn't buy something that you want is really disappointing.
Luckily I found out about this cool technique that you can use to cover your flatware and make it look the way you want!
All you need is polymer clay, I used Fimo.
This was the first time I ever used Fimo, but it was so fun that it won't be the last!
Of course you can use this technique to do anything you want, but I covered an old ruined knife along with a teaspoon with the clay that was left, and I am extremely satisfied with the result.
I hope you enjoy this instructable and have fun with clay! :)
Step 1: What you need
- 3 different colors of polymer clay - I used white, blue and red Fimo
- pasta machine
Step 2: Make 2 rectangles
Take one piece of white clay and one piece of red clay. They have to be about the same size.
Pass them through the pasta machine one at a time starting from the thicker size, and pass through the other different sizes until you reach the one that makes the clay about 1,5mm thick (0.05 inches).
Cut both of them to create 2 identical rectangles, as you can see in the pictures.
Step 3: The bicolored rectangle
You now have 2 triangles of each color.
Lay one white triangle on the other and press it a little with your fingers so that they will stick together.
Do the same for the other color.
Now join the 2 different colors triangles together to create a new bicolored rectangle.
