Polymer Clay Chopsticks by Talty Polymer Clay Chopsticks by Talty

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



This was a commission, when I finished it I took photos and put them all together like this. I thought it looked better, but the file is huge so I divided it in 4 pieces and published them individually. This Friday on the #ArtisanCrafts chat `Romaji organized a scavenger's hunt (it was super fun) and one of the clues involved the fan on top of the chopstick. Today I remembered this, looked at them all together and I realized I was right, they look better together :stare: so I'm submitting it, even if the file is big XD but I think it gives a better idea of the work and details I did, and how they work together.

Lesson's learned: Always go with your first instinct and life is random. Also, `Romaji organizes super fun chat games.

I recently learned that Maneki-nekos are bobtail cats, which have short stubby tails :doh: It annoys me to see the long fluffy tail now :( also, my old watermark is a lot more intrusive, I didn't notice it until now :o aaaaand I feel a lot more comfortable painting faces now, I should try making another maneki-neko :P

Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay, no molds, premades or bought pieces were used. The flowers were made cutting the basic shapes with flower cutters, then polished and shaped to look better. I used natural bamboo chopsticks, they're meant to be used as hair decoration. This is a one of a kind piece, made with my commissioner's design.

MOAR CLAY GOODNESS

Precioso, en mi caso no me agradan mucho las cosas en color rosa, pero es el color tipico de las sakuras asi que hay que respetarlo, supongo jajajaja
además de eso, se ve fantastico el trabajo =)

The fan is my favourite part. Getting a design on both sides of anything is quite a challenge isn't it?
Reply
:icontalty:
Talty Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2013   Artisan Crafter
It is! It was difficult to do one side without getting the other one squished, no fingerprints, and match them without making them exactly the same :doh:

MayEbony Featured By Owner Apr 16, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I've wondered about doing one side of something and then baking it just for 5 minutes to give a little hardness before turning over to do the other side, but haven't tried it yet. I'm working now for 3 weeks - paid office work - so it'll be early May before I get much time to do my clay again properly :iconchibispainplz:
