Earrings made of plastic: juicy lemon
Earrings selected in the store do not always answerall our requirements. Therefore, to date, many needlewomen are interested in how to make beautiful earrings from plastic. Earrings hand made - a win-win option, because you make them yourself, to your taste. Such bijouterie made of clay will suit your style and will favorably emphasize your individuality.
Very unusual look earrings in the form of fruits, vegetables and various berries.
Such decorations are especially popular in summer sunny days. They will add to your image of lightness, airiness and charm.
Polymer clay can be of two types:one that freezes and withers just in the air and one that needs to be baked in the oven. Today we will work with the material that will need to be dried in the oven.
To make earrings from plastic in the form of juicy ripe yellowish lemons, we need the following:
- multi-colored polymer clay (white, transparent, yellow, green);
- rolling pin;
- pins and toothpicks;
- colorless varnish;
- special accessories for earrings.
We make earrings from plastic:mix two clays - clear and white to a homogeneous mass, then add a little yellow clay to this mixture until the color becomes as much as possible like a lemon. The resulting mass is rolled into a ball and we divide it by a blade into ten equal parts, five in each half. Now white plastic is rolled out with a rolling pin in a strip. Its width should be equal to the height of the ball.
We cut the white clay into slices and insert them into thecut the ball. We squeeze the middle of the ball gently with a toothpick and insert a twisted lace from the clay. This is the core of our lemon. Combine both halves of the lemon and wrap them on the outside with a thin layer of white plastic. This should be done very carefully and carefully so that there are no air bubbles between the layers, otherwise they will break or become separated from each other when heated in the oven.
Now it's time to make a peel of polymerclay. To do this, we need to mix yellow and transparent colors in the following proportion: two-thirds of the yellow color we take one third of the transparent and quite a bit of green. If you do not have green color, you can easily get it by mixing the blue plastic with yellow in proportion to seven to one. Roll the clay into a strip and wrap it around the lemon.
Then squeeze the lemon until the roll is about half a centimeter wide.
Earrings made of plastic are almost ready. We cut the resulting roll into small pieces with a width of about 0.4 centimeters. Each side of the lemon is tightened with a yellow skin.
With the help of toothpicks and nazhdachki we give the lemon the necessary roughness and uneven surface.
Carefully cut the blade with a thin lemon in half.
A pin or a needle creates a hole for the accessories.
In the holes we pass the pins.Earrings from plastic are baked in the oven on a glass surface at a temperature of 100-130 degrees. We give the earrings to cool down and pass through the holes bought accessories. We cover them with a colorless varnish.
By the way, such wonderful lemons can also be used to decorate bracelets or as a pendant around the neck. They look fresh and bright.
