that gave directions for a mini steampunk house! I was in love! I haven't played with my polymer clay in a long time but out it came and I began to play! Please check out her videos and subscribe so you don't miss any of her goodies!
I took gold polymer clay and rolled it out and then used a steampunk cog embossing folder to place over the clay and rolled over it embossing the clogs into the clay. I cut 2 pointed top sides and 2 rectangular side pieces. I cut a strip long enough to go over the top for the roof and a small strip of clay to make the roof cap. I connected the sides by adding a strip of clay in the corners of the walls on the inside and used my embossing tool to mush the clay together to connect the walls. Then I layed the top over the bottom very carefully, pressing gently down to connect them together. It wanted to crack where it bent so I used the strip as a roof cap and using the embossing tool to attach it to the top of the roof.
Then came the super fun part! I had a bag of jewelry pieces and beads...all sorts of amazing goodies given to me by my aunt just last week! So I added pieces of jewelry to the front, back, and sides. On the top, I glued a large silver bead and took a piece of copper wire and twisted around a pencil to form a coil. I bent the coil to give a wonky look and glued into the hole in the bead and glued a red and orange bead to represent the chimney which most don't have fire coming out of them but it was the symbolism of it!
Now, of course it needed a door! so I cut 3 sides out and scored the 4th side and opened the door before baking.
So I added jewelry embellishments on all 4 sides, did my wonky chimney, and that was it!
This was really fun to do and I am now working on some tiny books that are so much fun, also!
It is time for our July challenge at Rhedd's Creative Spirit and as always the theme is "Anything Goes" and is open to altered art/mixed media but no cards, ATC's or tags unless make from wood or other altered products.
