Then this morning the "ideas" pop in your head..you know if you don't start on them or sketch them out your going to be just floating around anyways... So I took the morning to work on some new skills.
Platters/Mugs/Bowls and fruit:
I decided to attempt a few different things this morning, I never really work on platters or cups so I though that would be a good start.
As you can see here its your standard Polymer punch plate: punch circle then press a smaller circular object in the middle slowly and rim will lift. I used a couple of small nail decals on the plates just to add some contrast.
The 2 decorated bowls are done with a stylus, Ill have to get more into that one at another time, its a few steps for that
I worked a bit on twice baking clay, starting with a standard shape and adding clay to it with details. A simple mold pressed cup... baked it, then added the base and fancy handle. This way you can grip the cup and press details in.
This platter was done by punching a simple circle then adding indents, I ran it though the pasta machine once and it turned out to be a perfect oval.
The cookies I did cutting with a exacto and hand shaped..just to see if i could
The fruit bowl is something you have to keep working on but I wanted to get a baseline to see where i was at in making small fruit.. first time bananas here.. they don't look to bad ;)
Ps...my nails and hands are jacked up... yes...yes I know
