Blood Drop Pendant - Warhammer 40k inspired by Talty Blood Drop Pendant - Warhammer 40k inspired by Talty

| Etsy | Custom Commissions | Facebook | YouTube | Polymer Clay Gallery |



My fiancée is actually my guinea pig XD due to the life style he leads the things he wears get worn out a LOT faster, like 10 times faster, so I give him things when I want to test anything new XD In this case I was testing a new glaze, the glue on the bail, the black chain necklace and the magnetic clasps I bought, they all passed the test! :lol: everything lasted quite well for months, until one of my cats found the necklace and broke it in a million pieces XD

Oka is pretty much obsessed with the whole Warhammer 40k universe, particularly with his Blood Angels... so I decided to make him an ornamental blood drop pendant. He's wearing it in this pic. I made this around the time we finished playing TLoZ: Skyward Sword, and I really loved the new design on the heart containers! So I was inspired by it to decorate the blood drop with gold clay, besides the color scheme matches his Blood Angels and Sanguinary Guard perfectly. It was super difficult to make the design symmetric x.x I really liked it, and he loved it even more, but looking back I think I should have made the center section a bit smaller to leave more room for the filigree.

Since this one was destroyed by my cats I plan to make it again, next time with wings :D I like the simplicity and clean look I achieved in this one. I would make one for me but there's not a lot of pretty things to represent Orks XD Still, I love my Orks <3

Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay by me, no molds, premades or bought pieces were used. This was about 2.3 cm ~ a bit under an inch tall. Quite small :D oh yeah, that reminds me that I need to buy gold bails :stupidme:

That's a good idea... Maybe I'll try to do something like that... :plotting: (It won't be exactly the same of course... :XD:

I would like to see that! :la:

Don't worry I have no problem with people getting inspired by my work, I think we are all inspired by someone else. It's just a matter of knowing when to give credit :)

I was thinking of grabbing natural stones and adding designs to them with the clay like that.

That's so awesome! Adding wings is a good idea, I think it would make it a bit more recognizable as Blood Angels :)

Talty, if you don't mind... would you tell me how did you make the gold lines so neat?

I'm trying to make a mold for synchronicity rin necklace, so first I need to sculpt the model with some clay.
It's very hard because there are many parts which are thin >_>''

The one I made is very uneven and rather ugly (not to mention it broke... accidentally)
so might as well make a new one :/
(I wasn't using sculpey clay or something. I used some air-dry clay...)

I think polymer clay helps a lot, it is very strong and easy to smooth, so it actually helped me make the gold lines so neat. I tried using air dry clay a couple of times and I found it a lot more difficult to work with, so maybe it's one of the troubles with the material :(

I see :( so it's the material huh?

Did you pipe the clay? (like when you do frosting on a cake)
or did you just roll it?

and do you smooth the polymer clay with water?

I think it is, it's more difficult to smooth air dry clay.

I just rolled it very thing, I didn't pipe it! I just rolled it very carefully. Polymer clay is not smoothed with water, I just use my fingers :)

Oh that's why the golden design looked familiar at first glance :D I love the SS heart container design too, and you made it work very well in this piece, yet different for it to be unique. It looks lovely!
