This is a short explanation for the above mentioned workpiece.
If you want to create a workpiece by yourself please
follow the step-by-step instructions under courses
(navigation to the left).
This creation has been made out of Fimo and Creall-therm.
Both kinds of clay can be intermixed.
First I have made a marble structure out of several
shades of green clay (take a look at Basics).
polystyrene foam ball was directly covered with a purple/red
layer (flower). The ball will then shrink in the oven when heated.
If you cover the form first with tin foil you keep the
form intact. This is not the way as you want to be able
to extract the ball after baking your workpiece.
partly covered form is put on a few green
clay balls as can be seen on the picture. Be sure to have the right
thickness, it has to support ball and babies lateron.
This creation will now be put into the oven for about
Meanwhile I have modelled the prince and a few petals.
After the cooling process the prince and the petals are put into the
workpiece. The whole creation has to be in the oven again
for 30 minutes (110 degrees C).
