Polymer Clay Miniature 1 to 12 – Small Basket For A Picnic


using a piece of scrap clay I’m going to make a mold for a basket and I’m just rolling it into a ball and I am squeezing it a bit flat here on the side and I’m going to cut it and you use scrap clay this is just because the blue colors because I have so much blue colored clay so I’m using blue color so I have like a half moon here and I am going to take something to flatten it out here for the bottom my basket so I’m going to save it until I like the size and the shape and then I’m going to remember that this is going to be the hollow part of my basket so my basket will be a bit bigger than this thing that’s it and then I’m going to bike on okay here we go so you can see what I’m doing then I’m going to bake this and wrap it with tinfoil before I continue working with it I wrapped my mold thing in tinfoil and now I’m going to use my clay extruder after that I have some scrap clay in a brownish white color I wrote that into a sausage that can go into my legs drew then I found the size of my sausage that I liked I am only going to use the middle hole so I take this one and put it in here and then I have this one with a bigger hope that I’m putting over so I get it only out there in the middle I put my clay in the extruder and put the lid on now I’m just going to extrude my clay so I have a long long string you can’t see that but I do and I am going to take the ends of this long string I’m going to put them together I take my mold you can start at the top of your basket or at the bottom I like to start at the top so I’m just putting it here and then I am twisting the clay as I go around okay I’m just going to twist a bit more before it gets started here so I’m starting here and this is hard to see so I am going to do like that so I’m starting at the top of my thing and then I’m going around it twisting the two pieces here while I work at it and again I’m walking one so we are coming to the bottom of the basket and I’m trying to make a nice end here at the bottom like that saving the risk of my clay for the lid now I’m just molding it a bit together I’m going to make sure that it will stand so I’m squeezing it down to make it flat on the bottom like that making sure it’s sticking together all the way around I bet my basket so I can take it out take the mold out of it but I’m going to wait a second I’m going to make a handle for my basket so I am going to make in the end I’m going to make it so that it can turn around my basket so I’m cutting it off in the nice size making sure it fit all the way around my basket so I have this iPhone that I’m going to make a hole in there so that this can go through so make sure that these hands are turning the white right way around and I’m shaping it so that it fits around my basket and then I’m going to bake it like that I am going to make a top for this basket and for that I’m going to draw my basket onto a piece of paper I wrote this piece of clay out in a setting 5 and I am going to cut out a tiny piece here and I’m going to put it around my eye pin I’m going to put that here around the middle on my drawing and now I’m going to make the lid again I’m going to use this from earlier and I’m just going to start so I have this off piece around the middle making sure I’ll like it accordingly going here squeezing it a bit together and I am going to take a bit of my bacon bone and put on here to make sure that this little piece will stay when it is baked because I like it to stay in place like that I’m going to mold it a bit more just to make sure it’s like I want it to be and then I’m going to pick this part I wrote out a piece of play in a setting one now I am going to make some handles are going to make some things here to hold the handle and the lid I have a piece of an eye pin here and I am going to make a hole in these two so I put a bit of my bacon bound on the end here this might be too big and then I put it on around the middle of my basket and I do the same with the other one I am going to take my iPhone and put it through like this and I’m going to bake it so I pick these up three parts um fine so this is one lid for my basket and I’m going to make the other one so it will fit the basket so I’m going to take this clay again and put it through my packed machine I wrote out this piece of plate and now I am going to make all the the hinges fold it and then I am taking the first part and I can get it into first part of the hinge and the other one then I’m going to make sure it fits so I’m just placing it on here building this wall hinges back a label on and now I’m going to make the other lid so I place this on my drawing and now I’m just going to make the other lid just like I make the first one and I’m going to bake this part and then I will be putting everything together delete the handle and the basket I have all my parts and now I just need to put them together so I check out my pan and put it through the handle and here and then there and the other part of the lid whoops and back in the first lid and through the handle again yeah and I am having my small basket here you you
