Polymer clay makes it possible for people with a lot of imagination to embody decorating ideas, for example, turn an ordinary bank into a decorative vase or a kind of imitation of the original lava lamp, but it seems to me the name “seething Bank” fits better here. Kids will love to watch the amazing metamorphosis taking place within the “lava lamp” and needlewoman can try different kinds of decorative items made of polymer clay.
Materials and tools for creating a “lava lamp“
To create a decoration made of polymer clay
Bake polymer clay
Working surface: glass or ceramic tiles with a smooth surface
Knife or scalpel
Jar with lid
The metal tube for rolling or pasta machine
Glue liquid for plastic, for example, Kosmofen
To fill the “lava lamp”
Iodine, potassium permanganate or food coloring
The soluble effervescent tablets – Alka–Seltzer, Aspirin UPSA
How to create a simulation of the lava lamp with a decor made of polymer clay
An interior prepare our jar, decorated her decorative elements (flowers and butterflies) from polymer clay. Roll out thin layer of polymer clay. I chose a bright pink color for the decor.
With the help of molds, beads cut out from it onto our fancy colors.
Carefully fasten petals on the bank. I’m not focused on a particular flower petals lays out just beautiful.
From the thinly rolled out a green plastic do sepal, stem and leaf. We press all this to the bank – to bake everything will hold well. We are doing so three to four flowers at random locations on the cup without touching the cover. Since it is plastic and baked her plastic can not, then it is pasted then we décor.
Butterflies I decided to do in the technique of “Kane” or “cane”. This way you can make many of the same elements. Kata sausages several bright colors.
Wrapping them with a thin layer of black plastic.
Roll out the resulting sausages of different thickness and cut everything in equal parts.
We spread the rolls in the form of a butterfly’s wing.
Gently squeeze and stretch the preform, keeping the shape of the wing.
Now cut the deformed edge of the workpiece and cut into pieces in the ratio 1: 2.
Most of the plastic goes to the upper large wings. Cut it into equal subtle elements.
The second part of the workpiece squeeze a little more. And cut into equal parts well – it will be smaller, lower wings.
We spread directly on jar of our butterflies with a little body of pieces of black plastic. Send bank bake according to the instructions to the polymer portion of the preform gline.Vtoruyu squeeze a little more. And cut into equal parts well – it will be smaller, lower wings.
After cooling, separate the decorations by banks and glue it again using kosmofena. Do not forget about cover it, I also taped two butterflies.
Here is the finished decorative jar. You can fill it with colored salt, sand, pebbles or shells. And you can create magic for her, “bubbling” filler.
For this we need vegetable oil, water, any food coloring. Potassium permanganate gives a beautiful – pink hue of water, iodine – brown.
