Polymer Clay Seaside Miniatures
Hello! Tracy here to share another tutorial with you! My obsession with miniatures is often a driving force behind my polymer clay projects and today's project is no exception. While the process of finding new miniatures to add to scenes or settings is fun, sometimes one can only find only a few pieces, not enough to complete a diorama. I wanted to have a wide variety of sea-side elements to use without damaging my originals, and this is where Amazing Mold Putty came to the rescue!
Once the Amazing Mold Putty cured I removed the original pieces. To close up any molded loops created by the metal charms I mixed up and pressed tiny little wads of Mold Putty into the open portion of the mold as seen in the above photo.
I conditioned the polymer clay, making sure the clay was soft and warm enough to be pushed into the molds. I pushed little wads of clay into each mold and made sure the clay was filling the molds by pushing down the clay with a small stylus. I then put the molds filled with clay on a ceramic tile into a toaster oven, per manufacturer instructions, to bake. Amazing Mold Putty can easily tolerate the oven temperatures required to cure polymer clay.
