While e-books are taking up more space in our lives, it seems to me that there is nothing better than to keep in the hands of a real book, and slowly turn the pages. For these books useful small beautiful tab, made with his own hands, which can be supplemented with funny animal or a beautiful flower. Also, this tab can be useful for the diary.
Materials and tools for making bookmarks with their hands:
Bake polymer clay
liquid plastic – Gel
working surface: glass or ceramic tiles with smooth surface
Special textured sheet or cloth beautiful texture
a knife or a scalpel
baby powder or talc
Making bookmarks for books made of polymer clay
The colors for our bookmark, you can choose any – bright or pastel, contrasting or similar in tone. I chose the primary colors blue and green.
Apply with a brush or talc powder on the texture sheet, which can be found in the store with the goods for needlework. I chose a nice font list that is well suited for the bookmarks.
Cut the blank into two equal rectangles and bake the same. Since there will be several cycles of baking, it can be limited to 5-10 minutes at the temperature specified in the instructions to your polymer clay.
В это время из белой пластики я сделала простую фигурку милого и смешного котика. Несколько простых элементов — шарики, капельки и треугольники подходящего размера. Такая фигурка нужна на закладке, чтобы в закрытой книжке закладка не проваливалась внутрь.
Muzzle and paws can draw on the still damp thin plastic markers for disks.
After the cool part of the tab, proceed to their decor. Fill–letter deepening liquid plastic. For this we need thoroughly heated and mashed green piece of plastic and the liquid plastic, for example, gel “Fimo“.
Triturate on the glass plastic gel using a plastic window to liquid homogeneous mass. The same stack are color gel on the workpiece, carefully filling the recess.
Give gel well spread within the recess, and remove the excess with a damp cloth. Bake another 5-10 minutes. At the same time, you can bake and figure, if you are afraid to damage it at the time of connection with the bookmark.
Baked halves evenly chopped. Gel lubricates them. Adds the letters out. Edges decorate a thin strip of white plastic.
Attach figure. If you have already baked, it is best to lubricate the place of the gel, if the figure is still wet, it sticks so well. Bake together another 5-10 minutes.
That is so sweet tab we have. You can choose any color, texture, and figures for the different books and mood.
