Polymer clay roses tutorial by Talty Polymer clay roses tutorial by Talty

Tutorial en español: youtu.be/hkxYcT_hMDQ

I'm uploading one tutorial per week for as long as I can, so please subscribe and send me requests for things you want to see :love:

I really love making roses, I've made a lot of them over the years. Here's a sample of the roses I've made and how I've used them, hopefully it'll encourage you to make your own :) I think I covered about everything in the tutorial.

I can't say that making roses is easy, it does take some practice... but once you get the hang of it, it's very therapeutic! I can sit down making roses for hours. They make the most adorable earrings, and my mom used some of my roses to create those amazing bracelets.

I tried to record the voiceovers for this tutorial, but when I finished it I noticed that the volume was too low... so I ended up making a silent tutorial again :( I'm not sure what the problem is yet, I believe that I may need a better microphone? My mic was at 100% and the volume is still too low. If anyone would be so kind to watch the video and give me some feedback, I would be most greatful: youtu.be/uWZ2xFUbQOY (it's also a peek of how my future tutorials may end up being like, if I fix the problem).

In that case, there's a few projects that are easier for a first attempt, such as waffles :)

Guaaaaaau, son geniales :meow:
A mí todavía me falta muha práctica, pero con tus consejos (y con la herramienta adecuada, por lo visto ;P) seguro que acabo aprendiendo.

Viendo los ejemplos al final de tu vídeo me ha surgido una duda: ¿cómo añades las rosas a las bases sin que se aplasten? ¿Acaso las pegas una vez está todo ya cocido?

Gracias por ver el video! Me alegra tanto que te pueda servir el tutorial :) es sólo cuestión de práctica! y si, la herramienta sirve bastante :D pero son baratas.

Si la base o las hojas las agrego después de que las horneo, para que no se deformen los pétalos. Avísame si tienes alguan duda!

¿Qué pegamento utilizas? ¿Loctite ya va bien?

Es que yo soy más de unir antes de cocer y sólo uso Loctite cuando hay que pegar la pieza a una base, por ejemplo.

No uso pegamento, si acaso le pongo un poco de arcilla líquida entre las piezas. Se pega bien la arcilla cruda a la arcilla ya horneada.

¿Y no hay que volver a hornear entonces?
Igualmente, ya he comprobado que el Fimo líquido no queda muy allá al baño maría, que es como lo hago ya. Sólo pregunto por curiosidad :meow:

Sí, lo vuelvo a hornear :)

Y por cierto, la arcilla polimérica no es duradera si se cocina a baño maría. Forzosamente tiene que estar horneada a 120-130ºC. El baño maría no puede superar los 100ºC (la temperatura máxima que puede alcanzar el agua líquida), y a esa temperatura no se puede evaporar todo el plastificante de la arcilla polimérica. Si queda plastificante, eventualmente la pieza se hará frágil y se romperá con el mínimo esfuerzo (el efecto por lo general se nota 2 ó 3 años después). Aunque parezca que está bien, no lo está.

Soy química y sé esto por experiencia profesional (mi trabajo de tesis fue en polímeros), pero hay varios artistas con experiencia de 15 o más años que están de acuerdo en que no es buena idea cocinar la arcilla polimérica en agua. Sé que no es de mi incumbencia, pero te recomiendo mucho que la hornees en cualquier horno que tengas, no en agua... excepto horno de microondas XD

No sé, la persona de la que lo aprendí no ha tenido problemas nunca...

Yo siempre lo pongo al menos el doble del tiempo recomendado (mínimo 1h) para intentar compensar la temperatura con tiempo. Además, no está dentro del agua, está en un plato sobre el vapor, así que el calor le llega sobre todo por convección del vapor de agua (que sí puede estar a más de 100ºC) al plato y por conducción de dicho plato a las piezas, que son bastante pequeñas.
Luego las piezas huelen un poco, y todo el mundo dice que el Fimo sólo huele si se quema, así que siempre lo he tomado como una "buena" señal, aunque tenga que airear la cocina y dejar las piezas a enfriar en la ventana.

They all look gorgeous! So pretty and delicate, my attempts at roses have been failures so far, but I'll watch your tutorial and have another go ^^ 

It must be fun having your Mum using your creations to make her jewelery! I guess creativity runs in the family <3

I hope my tutorial will help you! My first attempts were failures too, it does take some practice, but once you get the hang of it it's very addictive :)

Yes! It's so much fun and I love when she asks me for things to use and wear! It's so flattering to know that people love your work.

So beautiful! I've always loved roses, but they look so hard to make. I guess I should watch your tutorial and find out, huh? XD
My sister would flip over some earrings with those blue roses on them. She loves blue, and roses, so...yeah. Perfect match. :giggle:
By the way, those rose bracelets are GORGEOUS. The pinkish/peachy colored one? OMG. Beautiful design. :heart:

Thank you! They do take a bit of practice to do, but I don't think they're that hard. It's more about being patient :D maybe you can make those earrings for your sister! I kept the bright blue ones for me :) And the bracelets designs were my mom's idea :la: I'm glad you liked them!

You're welcome! When I get a moment, I'm definitely watching the tut. It's all primed and ready to go. :giggle:
And when I get another spare moment, lol, maybe I'll do some experimenting with some scrap clay I've got laying around here somewhere. :plotting:
I'd definitely love to try to make some blue rose earrings for my sis. It's never too early to think about Xmas presents! :dummy:

You're very welcome. Your mom has good ideas. :meow:

I still haven't watched it! :ashamed:
I keep meaning to, but things have been insane. XD And when I get a free moment, I forget what I'm *supposed* to be doing. :noes:
But I will let you know when I do, and if I need extra help figuring it out, I know who to come to. :D
