Polymer clay is among those materials with which it is easy and pleasant to work without having any special skills and tools. Plastic has a pleasant pliable structure, which allows you to create true masterpieces, while exerting minimal effort. This article will detail the process of creating unique earrings that will be made in the “translation” technique. This technique is that any image is transferred to the polymer clay, which at the same time does not lose its brightness and clarity. This technique allows you to create amazing jewelry and souvenirs, but pendants with photos of people who are dear to its owner look especially impressive. Amazing gifts are created from plastics using the “translation” technique that are remembered for a lifetime. Let's go on to the creation of earrings. We need: - a small bar of white plastic - printed on a laser (!) Printer image in mirror image - accessories (2 fasteners,2 pins and 2 connections of the ring) - blade - water - cotton wool - skalochka or any object that can be used for rolling out - board for modeling These photos are clearly visible on the photo:Step 1. If the plastic is still cold, then it is hard and kneads very hard, so it should be warm up in the hands and knead, then it will become pliable. First you need to cut two small pieces from the plastic bar and, stretching them, form a ball.Step 2. Now you need to roll these balls into a layer with a uniform thickness of 2-3 mm. Professionals use special pasta machines for this purpose, but we will use the old-fashioned rope to wield them.Tip 1: so that the clay does not it was not torn, it should be wetted with water. Tip 2: plastic, especially white, “collects” all the smallest dust from hands and tools, therefore beforehow to take it, you need to wash your hands thoroughly, for even the smallest mote will be visible on the clay. Step 3. When the plastic is rolled in "pancake", you can go directly to the process of transferring the prepared picture to it. It should be noted that the size of the clay layer should be somewhat larger than the image. How can I transfer the drawing? To do this, take a picture printed out and cut out on the contour and apply it face (!) Side to the plastic and roll it up a little bit.
To translate the image you need to water it and wait for it to soak up the top layer, so that we can remove it, leaving on the "pancake" only the picture itself. To accelerate the process of impregnation, it is necessary to gently roll the workpiece with a swish. When the paper becomes transparent and the drawing is visible through it - it's time! To remove the top layer of paper, you need to run your fingers over it, rolling the top layer into the "pellets". This is the most crucial moment - after all, together with the paper, you can remove the drawing itself, which will spoil the work.How the blank should look like:
