As she has no tales of her own.
She moves as she is pulled to move.
She speaks as she is spoken for.
She feels only that which she is told to feel.
She tells no tales of her own.
is a hollow soul.
Today I am going to share the tutorial on how to create this piece. Throughout December you will see our team working with our clay, of course, but we are partying along side Viva Las Vegas Stamps so you will be seeing us pull those out for use on our projects this month! Very exciting stuff!
Supplies for this project:
Body Parts stamps from Viva Las Vegas Stamps
Glossy black and Glossy red spray paint
black gem stone
Begin by flattening out a portion of the clay. You want it no more than 1/4" thick...a bit less is good.
Stamp your images into the clay leaving some space around the border of each image.
Once you have stamped them all, use a craft knife to cut around the border of each image. It is best to go slowly and use an up and down motion so you don't drag the wet clay and distort the image.
Carefully remove the extra clay and allow to dry completely. This can take 24-48 hours.
Once the pieces are dry, use a set of files to sand the edges to smooth.
Paint the pieces with glossy red spray paint (a bit too much) and then hit with a heat gun to get a bit of a mottled, blotchy effect.
Use a stick pin to gently poke holes in each part and then create the twisted wire joints.
Add a wire hanger at the top and add the gem stone as the heart.
Spray paint the IKEA frame black and allow to dry.
Hang the puppet in the frame to complete.
