I can't remember when I made these or what I did to them, but when my boyfriend saw the photos lost among folders he said that they're really pretty and asked why I never posted them... so here they are! I remember I wanted to make something fun, and truffles are really fun and a good opportunity to prove new techniques, which is what I did here. Of course like a lot of people I learned how to make these using *chat-noir's Chocolate Charm tutorial. My favorite is the one with the cherries on top, the other two are cute but the way I tried to make the lines didn't work as I planned, the next time I try truffles you'll see how much I've improved since
Technical stuff: Handmade with polymer clay, no molds premades were used and nothing was bought!
No sé cuando hice estos ni que les hice después, pero cuando mi novio vio las fotos perdidas en un folder me dijo que le gustaban mucho y preguntó porque nunca las subí... así que aquí están! Recuerdo que quería hacer algo divertido, y las trufas sin duda lo son. También quería intentar algunas técnicas nuevas, y eso hice. Como mucha gente aprendí a hacer las trufas usando el tutorial de *chat-noir. Mi favorito es el chocolate con cerezas, los otros dos son lindos pero las líneas de los otros no quedaron como yo esperaba, pero los próximos quedaron mucho mejor
These cakes are available in my Storenvy [link] and Etsy [link] or you can just buy them directly from me
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Specially to ^maytel, at least one of this slices is coming your way!
I love these cakes! Last time I made red velvet cake I received feedback telling me that the color is actually darker... so I listened Each slice has pure white frosting, it looks so fluffy each slice includes a tiny red heart, the hearts have a slight color marbling, it's an adorable effect. I'm really happy with the way they turned out, and I think I got the color of red velvet cake perfectly this time I actually decided to make a full cake this time instead of making slice per slice, it saves a bit of time but it requires more dedication to texture them all at once without going insane. But they look so adorable together, so it was worth it
I actually didn't try red velvet cake until a a week ago, we were hanging out with some friends when we passed by a bakery and they had red velvet cupcakes... I asked Oka to buy me one since I had never tried red velvet. I didn't think the flavor was anything special, it was kind of chocolatey, kind of sweet, and kind of meh. I don't know if that's what red velvet cakes are supposed to taste like, but I'm not impressed so far! Red velvet is not a popular flavor here in Mexico and that was actually the first bakery that I've seen selling them, so maybe they were doing them wrong. I will try to find another bakery and give it another chance.
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay by me! No molds or pre-mades were used, 100% handmade one by one with love. The techniques and materials I used were explained in my polymer clay cake tutorial.
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'm currently finishing the tutorial to make these cookies, it should be ready tomorrow I hope you'll like it! Edit: It's here! [link]
I took a lot of photos of the mini cookies with several findings that I bought (ebay) and I thought they were adorable, so I put them together like this to show some ideas. I thought they looked great so I decided to post them as a sort of preview to the tutorial, and also to encourage me to finish it by tomorrow since I already wrote I will post it tomorrow and I can't let you all down!
The cookie jar is actually an old photo, and the cookie bowl looks familiar this newer version looks a lot more realistic! I wonder if I should update my avatar...
The cookie bowl is meant as doll house prop, the cookie plate and cookie jar as pendants, the cookie platter can be a pendant or a bracelet, and the cookie tray is a ring the cookie plate and platter would also make great charms or cellphone decorations. They will be available when I re-open my stores and commissions
Technical stuff: The cookies are all handmade with polymer clay by me, no molds or pre-mades were used. The bowl was also made by me using the techniques explained in my polymer clay bowl tutorial. The metal findings were purchased on ebay and the glass jar comes from a local craft store.
I've been meaning to do this tutorial for a while, yesterday I was in a tutorial making mood and I just did it. No fancy editing, props, effects or nothing... I figured that making the tutorial and teaching is more important than making it pretty. So thereeeee learn how to make super pretty frosting XD If you notice, the way I do it is really quick and easy. If you have any questions about this tutorial or tutorial requests let me know I want to make more video tutorials like this. I also took photos for another tutorial yesterday, cookies anyone?
Also, I'm still super self-concious about talking in English, so I pushed myself to do it. I can practice reading, listening and writing in English but I never get to talk in English... ever... so I could use the practice. I think that my pronounciation is a bit awkward sometimes and I have an accent, I hope you can understand me and thank you for your patience I also have a few grammar mistakes, I didn't use a script or anything so I actually expected it (they're nothing serious, I hope).
Somewhat easy designs but so adorable! These are so sweet and colorful, and really fun to make I think that lollipops are one of the most adorable and fun things to do, I love matching the colors and swirling them. I get a tiny bit obsessed with making the swirls even and with just a tiny bit of white between them, I think that makes them pop and more realistic too! The "wooden" stick is made out of clay too, I like to poke the headpin all the way through the lollipop because that makes it so much durable. If you only poke the stick it can fall or break easily, but this way it lasts technically forever
The tiny flower was an addition that I thought would look cute I used a pink micro bead for accent. Everything else is polymer clay.
Diseños simples pero encantadores! Son tan dulces y coloridos, y muy divertidos de hacer Las paletitas son de lo más adorable y divertido de hacer, me gusta combinar los colores y retorcerlos. Me obsesiona hacer que queden parejos y con un poco de blanco entre los colores, creo que hace los colores resaltar y a la paletita más realista! El palito de madera también está hecho de polymer clay, me gusta que el alambrito atraviese la paleta por completo porque así es mucho más resistente. Si solamente se pega el palito éste se puede romper fácilmente, pero así dura casi para siempre
Me pareció que la florecita se vería linda la perlita rosa es para resaltar el diseño. Todo lo demás es polymer clay.
This was a commission I received on Etsy to make a sushi bracelet but with tamago, ebi and miso. For the miso I was asked to do it with cubes of tofu, bits of nori and pieces of green scallion in a deep red bowl painted the color or nori on the outside. Technically the bowls are not on the right scale with the ebi and tamago, but they fit the bracelet better in this size XD on the second photo you can get an idea of how small they are, they are the smallest bowls I've ever made being only about 8 mm wide. This is the reference I was given to work with and I noticed that miso broth comes in a million ways, from clear to opaque and from white to yellow, so it was a bit difficult to decide what to do but I guess there's no way to go wrong
I think the tamago looks too bright and kinda greenish on the first photo I have no idea what went wrong there. The shrimp was painted, I really prefer getting all the colors with polymer clay alone because it's more awesome and lasts longer, but I think it looks really nice this way. The maki beads were of course made using the techniques shown in one of my favorite polymer clay tutorials ever, Sushi Cane Tutorial by the amazing *chat-noir.
Making sushi bracelets such as these is one of my favorite commissions, they're just so much fun to make and even more fun to wear they are not really realistic, but I don't really want to work on making them hyper realistic because they're just for fun
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay, no premades or bought pieces were used. Paint was used for the shrimp and the outside of the bowls. Some pieces were glazed. The bracelet is put together with a elastic translucent cord.
Also sorry I haven't uploaded anything in a while, I just realized it has been weeks
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!
I forgot to post these I found the pics the other day and wondered why I never did... a year ago my boyfriend said that I needed a place to display my dollhouse and miniatures, so he built/bought me a lovely sort of bookcase and I made each space a room of my dollhouse (it's a fantastic design, and it saves so much space since it's vertical!). He didn't want my things to get dusty so he also added acrylic doors to it, and this was my contribution to the project, the door handles I glued them to the acrylic doors and they work fantastic and they are so fun to watch XD
I don't remember how I decided what to do for the door handles, I think I just did the stuff I wanted to make at the time lol. So they are a jelly cake roll (my bf's favorite, before I glued it he threatened to eat it if I left it unattended), a chocolate petit four, a jam cookie, a marshmallow, a colorful lollipop and a mint chocolate truffle. My favorite part was the creamy inside of the jelly roll, I love that texture XD TEXTURES I love making textures!
Comments and suggestions are much appreciated these are also available for commission as pendants, charms, earrings, etc.
Se me había olvidado poner estas fotos las encontré el otro día y no me explico por qué jamás lo hice... hace un año mi novio decidió que me hacía falta algo para exhibir mi casa de muñecas y miniaturas, así que compro y construyó una especie de librero y en cada espacio puse una habitación de mi casa de muñecas (es un diseño genial, ahorra mucho espacio por ser vertical). No quería que mis cosas se empolvaran así que le puso puertas de acrílico, y estas manijas fueron mi contribución al project las adherí a las puertas de acrílico y funcionan perfect, y son muy entretenidas de ver XD No recuerdo como decidí que miniaturas hacer, creo que solo hice lo que me dio la gana en el momento. Hice un pastel enrollado con jalea, petit four de chocolate, una galleta de mermelada, un malvavisco, una paleta de colores y trufa de chocolate y menta.
Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay and liquid polymer clay for the jam and jelly, no molds were used. The cookie shape was cut with a small cutter. Pastel dust was used to achieve the baked effect. The cake texture and color were made using the same technique I explained in this tutorial: [link] the method I use to making whipped cream is also explained there.
This was an interesting commission, I was given three elements to work with to create a pendant:
-The design of Tree of Life (basically a tree inside a circle with the branches reaching out to the edges, there's lots of awesome examples in DA). - An old crooked tree, with the trunk leaning to the side. - The colors petrol blue, silver and green.
This is the design I came up with, and both my commissioner and the recipient of the pendant liked it! That's what I love so much about custom commissions, when I know that my work is liked I feel extremely happy! It's kinda addicting...
I went for a minimalistic clean look overall, but overdid the curls on the branches just a tiny bit, for contrast. I decided not to add the green to keep it minimal, and resisted the urge to bling it with some crystals. I used a needle to give the impression of bark and added silver mica to make the silver very shiny, it also helped pull off the impression of bark. It has been a couple of months since I made this, and looking back I think I would have liked to add roots to it, but I don't know if my commissioner would have liked it XD it wasn't part of the sketch I sent her with my idea. Oh well.
The blue disc/pendant has beveled edges, it looks very interesting. I found a cool way of making pendants look very even and with a nice beveled edge no molds just playing around with my clay until it happened. Maybe one day I'll make a tutorial for it. I have so many tutorials in mind it's not even funny.
Materials: All handmade with polymer clay, no molds, premades, cutters or anything were used. Silver mica was used and sealed with a tiny bit of glaze.
