ONE TUTORIAL A DAY FOR 31 DAYS – DAY 8 OF MY JOURNEY – PANSY HAIR BARRETTE

I must warn you: I am very fond of polymer clay flowers, so I will make a lot of them during this 31-day journey.

For today, I have chosen a pansy. And I decided to use it to embellish a hair barrette.

Materials and tools used: white Fimo Professional Polymer clay, pastel colors, pasta machine, liquid Fimo, round cutter, black alcohol ink, a wooden stick (to make the veins on the petals and to draw the center lines on the petals) a stamp (to create a texture on the base), a brush (to create a texture on the back of the base) and Fimo varnish.

I have prepared the polymer clay and rolled it through the pasta machine. I have cut 6 round shapes (5 for the petals and one to use underneath the petals).

I have put one petal on each side of the 6th round shape.

I have put 2 petals underneath the first 2 (in the back) and one petal over the first 2 petals (in front). I have used liquid Fimo to make sure they will stick together. I also pressed them together using the ball tool.

Then  I have started painting it with pastel colors.

I have used black alcohol ink and a wooden stick to trace the black lines of the pansy petals.

I have applied a polymer clay rectangle on the barrette and another one on the other side (capturing the barrette between the two sheets of polymer clay). I have used Liquid Fimo to glue the pansy flower to the base. I have used the ball tool to fix it well to the base.

I have finished painting the flower.

Then I have imprinted a texture on the base (using a stamp). I have textured the back of the base using a brush.

That’s it for today! Thanking you for accompanying me in my journey!
