This week I
made an Olaf charm from the movie Frozen. Frozen is my all time
favorite Disney princess movie and Olaf is a cute snowman who dreams of
summer! I took photos of the painting process for a simple tutorial. :)
"I'm Olaf and I like warm hugs!"
started off by sculpting a base out of white polymer clay and stuck a
head-pin through so I can attach it to a necklace chain later.
I then painted the background with blue acrylic paint and painted the outline of Olaf with white paint.
Here I added some shading around his mouth and cheeks with a light grey acrylic paint mix (white with a tiny bit of black) .
Here I just added his tooth with white paint and shaded a bit around it.
In this photo I painted on his eyes and eyebrows, using black acrylic paint for the eyes and a burnt umber/brown for the brows.
I added his carrot nose and twig hair, using the brown I used for his
eyebrows mixed with a little black for the hair and a mix of yellow and
red paint for his nose.
I finished off with a couple coats of Martha Stewart Crafts high gloss finish on the front and back and it's finished! :)
Lately I've been lacking inspiration for miniature food making, whenever I feel uninspired I like to sculpt something simple to get my creative juices flowing again! So this past week I sculpted a few miniature cookies and a pair of cookie earrings. :)
This batch turned out crunchy and buttery!
These cookie earrings were fun to make and I've been wearing them non-stop.
Hope you've had a wonderful weekend and are feeling inspired this week!
These are a few of my most recent food miniatures I've sculpted, if you follow my Instagram you've probably already seen these!
This is a Thanksgiving plate I sculpted a few weeks ago. Mashed potatoes, green beans and sliced turkey with stuffing! The perfect meal for Thanksgiving. :)
I made these tiny cinnamon rolls recently. The gooey "cinnamon" inside and the icing texture was a fun challenge and took a while to get right! I watered the TLS (translucent liquid sculpey) down just a bit so it wasn't so thick, and then added a small amount of white paint for the right color!
I sculpted this plate of bacon and eggs a few weeks ago. I really enjoy sculpting entire meals, its a wonderful challenge!
