This was a commission for ~FalconFossi and it was really fun and stressing at the same time (you can read her comment about it here [link]) fish is difficult for me and I wanted it to be perfect. She told me that sashimi was her favorite food and wanted me to make a tray with fish and a dragon roll if I could fit it somewhere, but she also left me a lot of creativity freedom to decide what to include and how to organize everything (yay, fun!). Veggies, rice and ginger was okay but no wasabi. She kinda dared me to make the shiny metallic skin of mackerel and I love how it turned out. Salmon and tuna were also in her list of favorites and I thought the colors would work great.
She sent me a lot of references for the plate but I decided to go with this one: [link] I've never made a tray before so I had to figure out a way to make the shape. I took tips from this tutorial by ~lava-tomato when I made the salmon but I think I can still improve. The salmon and mackerel were made using my own technique. The roll was constructed using a similar technique than what's shown on this tutorial by *chat-noir except that with a smaller scale, and the avocado is a simple skinner blend. The cucumber, lemon and raddish/fish cake are canes I made using my own techniques.
She wanted to make a bracelet out of this so she asked me to make holes on the tray, I hope that she'll post photos of the bracelet when it's finished so feel free to check :devfalcon-fossi: out. I was also asked to make everything relatively flat because she was afraid that with her active life-style anything would get caught, so on the second photo you can see that nothing protrudes too much. This took a lot of love, research, time and work, but this is just the type of work I love to do
Technical stuff: All handmade by me with polymer clay without the use of molds, bought pieces or pre-mades. Acrylic paints were used for the black border on the tray, silver mica for the skin of the mackerel and glaze to make the plate look porcelanized and the fish and fruit look moist. The plate is 2.5 cm - 1 inch long, so everything is really small but I don't think you can take that from the photo XD
This was a birthday present for my sister, since she was little she has been obsessed with pie... she asks daily if I can bake or buy her pie, when we were little she used to ask for pie in her Christmas letter to Santa, and then she would ask for pie in mine too so for her birthday I made her an apple pie as a ring, and for the first time in a while I went by a few days without receiving a request for pie XD
When I was making the pie I remembered that *fairchildart had a wonderful apple pie tutorial and I used her ideas for the apple slices, but I made the rest more similar to how a real pie is made. I love the way the slices peek through the crust, but I think I would have liked to make the crust a bit more open to show the slices better. Next time I think I also want to try making a border to give it a neater finish. I liked it a lot and my sister liked it even more, so I'm very happy
Este fue un regalo de cumpleaños para mi hermana, desde que era pequeña está obsesionada con el pay... diario me pide que le haga le compre pay, cuando eramos pequeñas ella solía pedirle pay a Santa y luego escribía que quería pay también en mi carta para su cumpleaños le hice un pie de manazana de anillo, y por la primera vez en mucho tiempo pasaron varios días sin que me pidieran pay XD
Cuando hacía este pay me acordé que *fairchildart tiene un maravilloso tutorial de pay y usé sus ideas para hacer las rebanaditas de manazana, aunque el resto lo hice más similar a como se hace un pay de verdad. Me encanta la forma en la que las rebanadas se asoman por la corteza, aunque la próxima vez me gustaría hacer el enrejado más abierto para que se vean mejor. También quiero hacer un borde la próxima vez. Me gustó mucho el resultado y a mi hermana le gustó todavía más, así que soy muy feliz
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay, no molds or premades were used everything was made by me. Pastel dust and glaze were used for the toasty look and shiny wet finish. The ring is adjustable and bought. Photographed on my left index finger.
I love to make sushi bracelets It's something I wish I had more chances to do! A few months ago I received two commissions for sushi bracelets almost at the same time, so I took photos of them together. One of them is for my original array of sushi (tamago, onigiri, salmon) and the second one went to a girl that doesn't like tamago, so she asked me to change it to roe instead (the size ended up being perfect for flying fish roe), and I have to say I think that's a new favorite, the color is so bright and beautiful I also made a new makizushi cane this time, with even more rice so it looks more realistic
They are available in my etsy: [link] or you can ask me about them. They're made to order to fit each person's wrist. You can pick any combination of six sushi pieces and I'll make something like this, if you want a different sushi ask me first so that I can tell you if I can make it most probably I can, I love a challenge XD these are really fun to wear, after all this years I still wear mine and it makes me smile like a little girl
Technical stuff: All hand-made by me, everything is made with polymer clay except for the roe, no molds or pre-mades were used, it's 100% handmade. The bracelet is made with a sturdy clear elastic and secured with a clamp bead. Of course I learned how to make the maki from *chat-noir's immortal sushi cane tutorial and I took ideas for the fish roe from *Auffallend's Mini Realistic Roe Tutorial except that I had to adapt it to what I had available =3
Comments and suggestions are always much appreciated
I never uploaded photos of this cake except for a group photo, I found them the other day and I noticed that the swirls of the frosting look great and delicious, so I decided to upload it the strawberry cane is pretty meh, it was the first strawberry cake I made and I still have lots of slices because I always make my canes too big I think I'll throw it out and I'll make a new one, I don't really like the way it looks and the slices are a bit too thick for my liking, but I didn't know how to make thin slices back then XD
As for the photo I don't remember when I took it, but at the time I was playing around with the idea of spicing up my photos with different colored backgrounds. This photo is kinda interesting because there's a lot of contrast but I think I've settled with the clean look of light colored backgrounds. I still want to try using more props, but I always forget to take them out because I have the horrible habit of taking photos on the last moment.
My next video tutorial is going to be about making frosting, I've received a few requests for it because some people have been having troubles achieving the right consistency so please don't forget to follow me on YouTube.
Technical stuff: This cake is a pendant, I think it measures around 2.5 cm ~ 1 inch but it would make a great keychain or cellphone charm too. It has a wood core to make it lighter, the frosting and strawberries are all polymer clay handmade by me without the use of molds, premades, bought pieces, etc, 100% me!
This was a commission I received from a girl that obviously loves rainbows I made rainbow cake cellphone charm, ring and pendant, and a couple of tiny adorable stud earrings, everything with rainbow chips on top for the charm bracelet she asked me to make a variety of foods, so I made (from the top, clockwise): a rainbow ice-cream (the cone is covered by the scoop), a rainbow popsicle, rainbow frosted donut, rainbow chip cookie, rainbow lollipop, and rainbow frosted butter cookie I think I should have offered her a rainbow keychain too, that's the only thing that's missing for a full set!
So many rainbows if anyone is interested in a commission similar to this let me know! everything shown here is available for commission.
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay by me, no molds or whatsoever were used. A tiny heart cutter was used for the heart cookie. Glaze was used to make some parts shiny. This is all colored clay, nothing was painted!
This was an idea I suddenly had and I couldn't rest until it was done ._. my idea was to make a chocolate truffle bracelet, with every truffle being different and with many techniques. It is less realistic than my usual work, but it makes up for it in being colorful and fun! It's fun to try different styles I also thought this rainbow crystal bead spacers were perfect for it, they make it look so shiny and brought everything together!
The first photo shows how it looks glazed, I decided to glaze it because I thought it would look better. I'm not so sure anymore, I prefer things un-glazed (like in the two bottom photos) but I know a lot of people prefer the glazed look. Oh well
Even tho it was fun to make I had no intention in keeping it, so it's up for sale in my Storenvy. I am liking Storenvy so far, so I've been putting a lot more of my work in there than I ever put on Etsy. Please pay it a visit in case you find something interesting! I'm listing things almost daily. One of the things I love is that you don't need to make an account to buy things, you can log in with your Facebook account making it so much more convenient!
I think the price is quite cheap, considering that they're 12 chocolates you're only paying $3.33 for each one x.x oh well if it doesn't sell I'm taking it apart and selling the chocolates individually. I don't ever plan to do this again so this will be completely OOAK, if I ever do something similar I plan to do the chocolates completely different. The bracelet is 21 cm/8.3 in in diameter.
Technical stuff: All laboriously made out of polymer clay by me, no molds or premades are ever used! Some of the shapes were cut using tiny cutters. Glazed for a shiny finish.
UPDATE: When I uploaded this there was a glitch or something and some people couldn't see the photo. It has been fixed, I hope everyone can see it now.
My mom makes bracelets as a hobby, she also likes my roses so she asked me to make her some rose beads to use in her bracelets. This is what she came up with, I think they're really beautiful and I'm so glad I could do a sort of collaboration with her it was a bit difficult to figure out how to make the roses beads while still keeping them thin and delicate, but the design worked and held up pretty well, they've lasted her for months =3 I love her work!
So I'm going to add rose beads to my commissions list in case anyone wants to use them for beading and in case anyone is wondering I'm the one modeling the yellow roses bracelet. Feedback and suggestions are always much appreciated
El hobby de mi mamá es hacer pulseras, le gustan mis rosas de polymer clay así que me pidió hacerle unas cuantas para usar en sus pulseras. Esto es lo que ella hizo, me gustaron mucho y me dio mucho gusto poder hacer un tipo de colaboración con ella. Fue un poco difícil pensar como hacer las cuentas de rosas y todavía mantenerlas delicadas y delgadas, pero el diseño funcionó bien y ha resistido meses de uso =3 Me encantó su trabajo! Así que ahora también ofrezco cuentas de rosas en caso de que alguien quiera hacer pulseras con ellas
Technical stuff: The roses were made by me with polymer clay, each one is unique and made petal by petal, not two of them are the same and each one is made with great attention to detail. No molds or premades were used. The pearls, crystals and beads were bought by my mother, she assembled the bracelets with her own design.
I was going through my hard drive and I found this photo, I think I made this over a year ago and forgot all about it. I think I sent it to my friend *kimchikawaii. I actually see some tiny flaws in it, I love looking back and noticing how much I've improved and what I can do better I feel like making more ice creams now! I really like the colors and the way this turned out, it looks so soft and happy, and the chocolate syrup looks great! The photo is really bad though, only a tiny part of the ice-cream is focused x.x
Last time I submitted some ice-cream someone told me my scoops were too large, and not realistic. I don't think they are large, actually my ice-cream man is extremely generous and a magician at balancing super large scoops! When it starts getting warmer I will go get some ice-cream and take a photo of his fantastic work, it is borderline ridiculous XD and soooooooo delicious
Estaba revisando mi disco duro y encontré esta foto, creo que hice este helado hace más de un año y se me olvidó. Creo que se lo mandé a mi amiga *kimchikawaii. Veo algunas pequeñas fallas, me gusta ver mi trabajo anterior y darme cuenta de cuanto he mejorado y lo que aun puedo mejorar Tengo ganas de hacer más heladitos! Me gustan los colores, se ve tan feliz, y el jarabe de chocolate quedó perfecto! Aunque la foto es bastante mala, sólo salió enfocada una partecita del helado x.x La última vez que subí helados alguien me dijo que las bolas eran muy grandes. Yo no lo creo así, en realidad mi heladero es muy genero y balancea mágicamente las bolas de helado gigantes! Cuando empiece a hacer calor iré a comprar helado y le tomaré foto a su gran trabajo, es incluso ridículo XD y taaaan delicioso!
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay by me, except the chocolate syrup which is textile paint. The cone was made using a mold I made myself, using a technique similar to the one explained in my waffle tutorial. No other molds were used. Thanks to ^maytel for the kitty watermark.
This was part of the commission I did for ~Kizzarina, her lovely cat Ayame was named after iris flowers (Ayame=iris in Japanese) because of her stunning blue eyes, so she asked me to make a couple of iris flowers as stud earrings they were a bit more difficult to do than I imagined, but I'm really pleased with the way they turned out.
The shape was kinda complicated and getting the colors to blend perfectly was a challenge XD but as always, the most difficult part was finding a balance between delicate thin petals and sturdiness. When I make flowers it's always a bit tricky to find out just how thin I can make the petals before they become brittle, but if I make them too thick they look clumsy. Oh dilemma. Actually when I finished the flowers I noticed that the petals were still a tiny bit flexible and I was super scared they would break some day, so I decided to add the leaves to give the petals some more structure. It ended up working great for the design as well, and I hope they will last her a good time.
Technical stuff: 100% polymer clay and handmade, no premades molds or bought parts were used. No acrylic paints were used to achieve the colors. Metal findings were bought from a local craft store. Each flower is about 1.5 cm (left size reference) or just a bit over half an inch (right size reference).
This is probably the question I get asked the most, many people seem to have troubles getting the cake crumbs right so here's the video where I show how I make the texture! If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask me I tried to use the best photo I could so that you can see the texture I'm teaching you to do (size: 2 cm ~ 0.8 inches long). Here's my full cake tutorial: [link]
Some of you that follow me on YouTube probably saw this before, I actually uploaded it some months ago but there was a problem with the music I chose so I re-uploaded the video. However, I never announced here that I had posted it, so most of you probably have never seen it XD so yay! you can watch it now
As with all my other tutorials, you're free to use my techniques as much as you want and even sell the things you do with them, please link back so that more people can learn how to do these things or say that you were "Inspired by Talty", that's all I'm asking for. However, YOU CAN NOT to claim my techniques as your own, YOU CAN NOT to re-distribute my tutorials in any way with anyone, use them for any purpose, translate them, pack them or re-post them anywhere else. Thanks
