13 Days of Halloween - Day 3 - Black Pumpkin Polymer Clay Sculpture

Hi everyone!!! :o)

Today I'm bringing DAY 3 of the 13 Days of Halloween series. I had some unexpected obligations this week, so I'm far behind my planned sharing here on my blog. There is no way to finish sharing my series by the Halloween, as I am sharing one project per day, so I will share couple projects in the weekend after Halloween.

For today I made this Black Pumpkin polymer clay sculpture. :o)

How I made my sculpture...

When I work with a polymer clay, I work on a glass surface plate I have. I find the glass to be best surface to work with the polymer clay, as it's the easiest way to keep the surface clean. It's also very important to have clean hands, as the polymer clay picks absolutely everything from your hands or a working surface.

First I softened a black polymer clay with my hands. Polymer clay has to be softened, as it's not possible to work with hardened polymer clay. 

Then I made a ball from an aluminium foil and wrapped the polymer clay around it. Using my hands and glass working surface, I shaped a sphere. Using various modeling tools, I shaped the pumpkin. 

Next up were details: a stem, leaves and vines.

After I attached all details to the pumpkin, I scratched the pumpkin to get nice skin texture. 

When I was finished, I baked the pumpkin in an oven following producer's instructions.

After 30 minutes of baking, I put the sculpture to cool on air for 15 minutes and it was finished. :o)

Here are photos of my pumpkin taken from different angles. :o)
