Today I'm bringing DAY 4 of the 13 Days of Halloween series with these two Polymer Clay Ghosts sculptures. :o)
How I made my sculptures...
When I work with a polymer clay, I work on the glass surface plate I have. I find the glass to be best surface to work with the polymer clay. It's also very important to have clean hands, as the polymer clay picks absolutely everything from your hands or working surface.
I softened a night glow polymer clay with my hands. Polymer clay has to be softened, as it's not possible to work with hardened polymer clay.
Using my hands and a glass working surface, I shaped ghosts. Using various modeling tools, I shaped holes for eyes and inserted a tiny black glass bead for each eye. Then I worked on wrinkles, shaping them with my hands.
Then I baked ghosts for 30 minutes in an oven following producer's instructions.
After baking, I put ghosts to cool on air. After cooling, I sanded them using a fine grit sanding paper and my tiny ghosts were finished. :o)
I really like how these two turned out. :o)
And they glow in the dark. :o)
