Screen Print your own t-shirts // How-To

I like to see nonsense. Today I’m going to show you how to screen book your own t-shirts. You’re going to need a screen, a squeegee, and some photo emulsion. This nonsense comes in 2 responsibilities. You’re going to add a little ocean to the little bottle of sensitizer, and mix it up. That slackens it from the sides of the bottle, and then you can spew it into the emulsion. Then you’re going to combination that all together truly, really well, until it’s a consistent green color.

It might take a little while, but you want to make sure that you get it fully consistent. Once you have it, you spew a bit of it onto the screen. You don’t need to use very much because it spreads truly thin once you use the squeegee. Make sure to get the part stuff clothed where you’re artistry “re gonna be all” and make sure it’s really, truly even Now, don’t leave this out in the light.Gave a love on it to dehydrate and pass the light-headeds off. You want it to dry in the dark. Once it’s dry you do want to work immediately because this nonsense is photosensitive, so the longer the light’s on it, the quicker it’s going to set. Reproduce out your artistry on some openness, and you can do this at any office supplies store, and then lay them backwards on the back of the screen. Lay a piece of glass over them to propagandize them down against the screen, and then provided a really light light on top of it for about 3-45 minutes. So, while we’re waiting on that, I want to tell you about this. In this box is a queen-size mattress. Unbelievably it fits in this box. It’s made by a company announced Casper, and it’s a combination of reminiscence and latex sud and they squish it down into a bag– persist it in this box. They ship it to you, you take a tool, and you rip open the luggage, and the whole mattress really inflates.

If you want to watch now, you can see a video about me making a king-size couch and on that berthed we use a Casper mattress. So I’ve been sleeping on it since I manufactured that video, and I can candidly articulate that I truly adore the mattress. Super cozy, I recommend them all the time when people ask my if I actually like them or not because I truly do. The cool stuff is you get to sleep on it for 100 lights and if you don’t like it for any ground, they’ll developed get onto. So if you are looking for a mattress, I clearly indicate checking this out go to casper.com. You can use the code “MAKE” and that’ll got to get $50 off anything you order which is pretty awesome. So, is checked’ em out. Thanks to Casper for patronizing this video. Let’s get back to the publication. The light-footed exposes and thickens the emulsion that is not covered by the design, so you can see the lighter green stuff now didn’t get exposed. You can use a light-footed scatter and a soft toothbrush to improve remove this area.

The mode printing works is that the green province acts as a concealment. The white–or lighter area–lets the ink through onto the surface that you’re publication on. You want to do this gently, because you don’t want to remove anything that you actually involve This may take a little bit of period, and sometimes you may have missteps. If you have areas that are missteps, or nonsense you don’t want to book more, you can use some strip to cover them up. Use painter’s strip and not duct strip — the passage strip will rip off the emulsion. -Now lay out your shirt and target your screen, then include a nice thick-skulled be bead of the screen printing ink It’s best to have somebody else accommodate your screen and then pull the squeegee down across your book If you click here you can see one of my first videos on this direct was how to make a four hue printing press, this obliges this process- a lot easier but it’s really exactly the same you hook- in the screen text it up with your core text and then you can get repeatable nice prints- on multiple shirts you lay your shirt out in the same way, and then use the machine to contained the screen down in place you still gather it the same way and get just about the same outcomes you want to heat provided these by hurling them in the dryer for a few minutes You can reuse the screens extremely if you’re finished with them by putting some photo emulsion remover on them This is a simple solution that you can just kind of clean on with a newspaper towel or a toothbrush Make sure you situated it on both sides and it doesn’t have to stay on longer than got a couple of minutes Then you can use a hose to wash out all of the emulsion If “youre using” pitch-dark ink sometimes it will discolour the screen itself but you can still reprint through them- as long as the emulsion is croak Now it takes a little bit of practice, when you do this you are able end up having some bad shirts it takes a little while to get the detect to seeing how hard you need to push down the squeegee and how to do it evenly because you want to make sure you get a really even gather, so that the- ink is spread evenly through the screen So it’s best to find some old-fashioned t-shirts to tradition on before you try and use like your nice shirts that you purchased for this.

Now screen printing works on all sorts of things Textiles, so any type of t-shirt, canvas, luggage, aprons, even hats- if you can work on the form of the hat. All sorts of nonsense like that, any type of attire employs really really well. Just make sure to heat provide it into the clothing just like I testified you You can also print on paper if you wanted to see signs or summons, events like that, newspaper directs really well.

I’ve also engraved on wood several times You can watch my long committee video where now where I screen engraved my logo on it that was really easy to do I’ve done it for several your customers to situated their logo on events that I’ve manufactured -and it directs amazingly well and I’ve also done it on metal you just have to make sure you situated some kind of a clearly defined hair over it it to protect it because it will scrape off the metal pretty easily as long as you clear coat it you should be good to go so if you’re interested in engraving I’m going to have a link below to my site which will have a schedule of all the stuff I used and ties-in for you to find everything this is necessary so you can book on your own I hope you like this project and if you did let me know down in the comments below or at Iliketomakestuff.com I love to hear from you guys, I love to see the stuff you’re working on it’s really inspiring for me so please continue to share that with me.

You can find me on all of the social networks, which ever one you like best available, I’m probably there. I have a lot more nonsense for you to check out in podcast and proves and all sorts of nonsense and if you want to help support these videos, patreon is the best mode to do that you can click here you are able to click here -and catch out all about that. Thanks for watching chaps, thanks to Casper for patronizing this video and I’ll see you next time ..

DIY Mosaic Tile Bird Bath – Man Vs. Pin – Pinterest Test #45

Let’s just get into it. A couple a few weeks ago, Justice commented, “This looks pretty swag.” Over 1800 of you agreed, which is a little ludicrous. If you don’t know what swag necessitates, Urban Dictionary characterizes it as “the most used word in the whole[ beep] universe.” Apparently, the committee is also necessitates Secretly We Are Gay. Who knew? The mosaic tile fowl bath, originally posted over on Me and My DIY, this thing is made out of DVDs. DV what? I belief I still have a few of those somewhere.

Oh yeah, here we go, House of 1000 Corpses, classic, Pineapple Express, Adventure Time, Womb Raider. Wait. Hold on, Assablanca? How’d these get in here? These aren’t mine. Corinne, are these yours? All right, keep moving, the directions say to take some scissors and cut the DVD in half. Then it kind of separates into two, so you remove the outer plastic layer, and then you take the reflective side and you cut those into small-scale pieces. All right, I did that, and it looks like[ beep ]. I cut them into smaller pieces, and they turned out as bad. I don’t want to glue these onto anything. All right, I’m going to try this out on some age-old Cds and realize if it gets any better. Katy Perry? Hold on. You’re not “re going away”. All right, these Cds are a little bit easier. No extra plastic layer to remove or cut into, but still they’re moving out like[ beep ]. It wasn’t until about 8 to 10 discs in that I recognized the whole secret is you’ve just got to cut these[ beep] things super precise, super slow. Merely then will it not look like[ beep ]. Applying this technique to the DVDs didn’t really help so much better, so I merely protruded to the CDs.

And eventually, things are looking up. A small-scale tip-off: Cutting CDs[ beep] suctions. Objective of tip-off. Hours afterward, I eventually had enough tiny, little Cd pieces to start work on my fowl bath. I got myself a good-sized saucer platter thing. I grabbed some heavy job cement and began adding Cd pieces one after one after one after one. Once I was finished with the bottom, I glued pieces at the edges and along the sides. What had to be nearly 18 hours later I was ultimately finished gluing[ beep] to this platter. I left it out to dry overnight, and the next morning busted out the grout. Now, I myself “ve never” employed grout, so I followed the trace out educations the best I could and intent up with, I hope, the right consistency. I don’t[ beep] know. Looks okay, I guess. Once mixed, I began to spread it onto the platter utilizing a putty knife, but that kind of sucked Then I stole this thing from the kitchen because that’s what they used in the pin, but that is actually wasn’t much better. It eventually came down to me merely utilizing my hands, which was the best option.

I filled in all the spaces, stimulated sure it was smooth, and then, with a damp cloth, mopped off all the Cd tiles. I feel like after I added the grout it muddled some of the color a little bit. That and I belief DVDs are a little bit more purple-y in color. Whatever the case, I think it searches awesome. I placed it in the downstairs garden-variety, added some water, and now to see if this thing actually works. Boom. Yeah it does. That is one swagalicious fowl bath. Those guys are having a bang. Four things: First thing, subscribe. ThreadBanger is about to reached thousands and thousands of[ beep] customers, and that’s just[ beep] insane. Second thing, like this video up. Even if you didn’t like the video. Who cares? It’s just a stupid button. Third thing, leave your pins in specific comments below so I know what the[ beep] I’m doing next week.

Recycled Pallet Wood Art: Using Pallet Wood and Random Items to make Wall Art

The Wave All right here’s some of the material I’m used to trying and making this recycled wall artwork. I have some pallet lumber, some old barn wood, some glass scraps, this thin piece of plywood, and then I have some old Christmas lighters. I’m going to go ahead and get started by putting the pallet lumber onto the plywood.* Spray paint* So there you go recycled pallet wood wall artwork. Overall I think it turned out kind of cool. It was just basically a merriment job because I’ve been having this idea about wanting to be all artsy and uh…

Make the kind of uh … like a framed artwork piece use pallet lumber and some up random scrap cloth so this is what I purposed up with I’m jubilant with it, you know considering I’m not artsy at all. I suck terribly at outlining and you’ve maybe noticed all I ever describe are waves because that’s all I can describe so busted out a ripple over there I did kinda like a little floral situation.  Over here with the glass you know the palm tree in some buds and material like that in the background, it’s kind of like uh … this a little painted graphic you know what sun lights come out represent a sunset with the nighttime coming over the top.

So finished yet up there with a barn lumber chassis and oh yea the best part oh yea twinkling starring kind of cool, huh.  So yeah, that kinda finished it up with the stars That’s just old Christmas lighters with holes drilled, and I poked the lighters through and I just kinda think it generates it fresh effects, so that’s it for this week until next time Stay bummy beach bummy LOL !, that was stupid.

How to Make a Confetti Bowl – Part One

I had become preoccupied with this confetti container and is intended to make it and so I actually drew it and we are going to make one together now Tell me just tell you one thing about this confetti container I learned so much while making such container, number 1 it takes a long long time to meet meaning that it takes about a week so if you’re gonna meet this container you have to dedicate a week to it ok so I’m just shedding that out there is not a quick and fastest and most down and soiled simple one this actually takes some time and it also this project that i’m gonna keep working on because I am convinced that there’s more to this one for this program though let’s get started and then I’ll keep talking as we’re working.

There’s a lot that happens in it I decided to use a pizza casket as kind of a posses all wield seat I found that it helps me with catching the confetti it was a great region to capture the glue it was a great region to to be able to move my programme backward and forward so I used a pizza casket for that you’re also going to need confetti now the confetti that I bought I went this online this is actually kind of made out of newspapers like died newspaper if you can find tissue paper more tissue papery kind of confetti I think you would do better than I did but just telling you what’s out there you can meet your own confetti if you crave to you know it’s just gonna take a long time you are gonna necessary about a quart of this you’re gonna necessary a good extent of it i entail this is this is a goodly extent of confetti and it goes through it rely me the other thing you gonna necessary a goodly extent of is Mod Podge you’re gonna necessary a 16 ounce bottle for this so get yourself a 16 ounce bottle of Mod Podge you’re perhaps gonna run through about 12 ounces of it really giving you the heads up a couple bags you’re gonna necessary I find the better lane to apply Mod Podge is one of these leech brushes and for this programme you surely surely surely crave a leech clean you don’t crave a clean clean ok what I entail by that is a hairbrush you know not not a whisker clean but a clean that has bristles.

I’ve also got a couple little container now I’ve got a bowl for catching and putting Mod Podge in if I want to and also I’ve got this little bowl and “its going to be” truly handy when I scoop and sprinkle now I have a big container and this is one of the most important things because it is the catch all you need this to catch the confetti I’m also going to be using some canal videotape and I’m gonna be using the inside of a canal videotape bun this is what I’m gonna be using to meet my stand while I’m working on this you can use a vase or something like that but I felt that this is great because it impedes it low-toned and centered you can hold on to it I really felt this to be best available for me I went an exacto pierce now you don’t have to have this this is just for me when I sounds my bag but you are going to necessary scissors and I’ve got mine right now and you’re gonna necessary a glue firearm later on at the last stages of doing this this is kind of like a fix picture because you have to do this in stages and when I say it takes a week I entail it takes a week so the first thing we’re gonna do is we’re gonna blow up our bag you wanna blow it up about half of a bag length like so you don’t want to blow it up a really super super large-scale if you wanna do a bigger, tie it off if you want to do to a bigger container I would suggest a 16 ” balloon, this is an 11 ” balloon.

I’m gonna take that canal videotape bun that is the end of the bun and I’m actually gonna region my bag on top I’m gonna pull my end piece through and I’m gonna videotape it to the spool and the reason is because one of the things that I learned is as I was making this starts to get top heavy and when it gets top-heavy what it wants to do is flip all over your work space so literally I had this bag like flinging around my work space like confetti winging everywhere rely me it was quite a mess so I’m trying to save you a bit of a mess OK so I’ve gathered this this is the end I gathered it out and through I’m videotaping it to my bun now it stands nice and even OK ready to get chaotic? this is a recreation recreation skill you can do this with your babies it is a super super super super chaotic skill OK let’s get started first thing to do is take my Mod Podge and situated it in the container now so I can get to it because my and yes that’s a lot of Mod Podge but my clean is preferably large-scale and I can’t really proceed into my my Mod Podge,

With it so i’m gonna swarm it into this container okay now here’s what I learned don’t be avaricious with your Mod Podge you gotta be slathering it on there that’s why it’s kind of recreation with the babies really really truly get laid there don’t be shy don’t put only a bit on there and the other thing that I realized that I should let you know is I had tried it with glue and water it operates but not as well for some reason Mod Podge just really seems to be the produce that works really well for this now this is where because you’ve got this taped now you can collect this up slather this thing and I did try a technique depict in little slice and pertaining my confetti but I felt that is really was not the best of techniques what you really want to do is just cover the whole top fraction of your bag so that you’re making a container chassis situated that off to the side grab your container you need your bowl and this is where you’re gonna take your confetti and start dispersing it on you really want to go to town with this, this is where babies can have fun now there’s some little depressions now try to fill in the depressions with your confetti this is where.

I think if I had tissue paper confetti I would be doing better than applying this confetti that I have here really made to ensure that you got every bit of it clothed now you’re gonna need to set this aside and let it bone-dry for about 8 hours this is why I said that this takes time you can’t surge this because you really want this bed to be dry and solid before you set on your next bed.

How to Bead Weave a Daisy Chain

Today I’m going to show you how to bead knit a daisy chain. It’s really a simple proficiency, and it is a lot of merriment. You could report a lot of distance in a short quantity of occasion which is really nice with beading knitting when you can do that. I have samples here. Here’s a classic daisy chain where you’ll visualize the daisy with the center. Then there are a few balls between it and the next daisy a few more balls another daisy. Here’s a variant on that where I’ve actually applied a larger size bead inside. So I’ve got 11/0 on the outside, and a size 8/ 0 in the middle and then I’ve done it where I’ve done one beading between each daisy and over here I haven’t employ any seed beads between the many daisies. I’ve just done one daisy next to another next to another, and I’ve actually added more around the outside. It might all seem a bit different claim now. I’m going to show you how to do all three different techniques.

Here’s only another variant where I’ve done the same technique, but I’ve applied Czech glass balls in size four millimeter. So to begin, you’re going to want to take some beading thread. Either Nymo, ko or I’ve got some wildfire depending upon what you’re going to want to be doing with it. I’ve stranded my needle onto the thread. I’m utilizing a size ten needle for the activity I’m doing. Of route, you’re going to want to opt your needle according to your project.

I’m going to place a stopper beading onto my thread. I’m going to tie a simple overhand bow leaving a posterior of about six to eight inches. And for you the first to route to do a daisy chain I’m going to go ahead and situate eight balls onto my needle. So I got five, six, seven, eight. You’re always going to want to have an even number of balls. You can run it, though. You can use six you can use ten. Do as many as you like. Pull those balls down to your bead stop. Depart onward and follow through that first beading string. Draw your needle through so you’ve created a loop. At this level try to gather your balls as close to the beading stop as you can. Take a different pigment beading. It can be the same size, or it can be larger. Draw that down. Position what will be the center beading in the center of your round and then weigh starting with the beading you went through firstly, so that was your first beading you strung, and then you only went through it again.

We want to count five balls over. This is if you’re going to do eight balls on this round. So one, two, three four, five. On the fifth beading come up through it thus fastening your middle beading in place, and you can see now that it’s stood directly in the center of your round. So you’ve got three balls on the side, one on both sides and then three balls on the top constituent as well. So that’s in the center. Now if you want to you can go ahead and add several beads.

I’ve got three here onto your beading thread as a spacer beading between your daisies. Then to make another daisy only simply pick up eight more I’ve got four, five, six, seven, eight Pull them down until they meet the spacer balls. Now go back through the first one, and if you impound it like this, it’s going to keep those neat and close up to your spacer balls. You can scoot them down as well. Depart onward and add a hub beading again. Count five balls from the beading you only exited through. So one two three four five. My fifth beading I’m gonna go through. There you have another daisy. Pick up a few more spacer beads.

I’m going to do one more daisy this route then I’m going to do another type. So eight balls again. Five, six, seven, eight. Draw them down. Depart through the first one. Make a clique. Include a middle beading. Position it in the center weigh five balls, so one, two, three, four, five follow through that fifth beading there are still you have a daisy. So we made a neat little chain like this.

I’m going to do one more daisy this route then I’m going to do another type. So eight balls again. Five, six, seven, eight. Draw them down. Depart through the first one. Make a clique. Include a middle beading. Position it in the center weigh five balls, so one, two, three, four, five follow through that fifth beading there are still you have a daisy. So we made a neat little chain like this.
Now if you want to do a little variant you can go ahead and only do one daisy next to another daisy without spacer balls, and you would just go ahead and pick up another eight balls directly after you finished your daisy. So I’ve got four, five, six, seven and eight. Draw these down. Reach sure you take note of where you’re Daisy aims, and your new balls begin. Go through that first beading you strung. This is going to be the first beading of the new Daisy. Depart onward and add a hub beading. Count five balls. One, two, three, four, five. Now to adjust the daisy chain a bit, if you want to add a larger beading in the middle such as this four millimeter round what I’m going to do is pick up ten balls the first time. So two, three. And I requirement more balls to accommodate “the world’s largest” circumference of my middle beading. I’m going to go through the first beading that I strung just like I did with my other daisies. I’m going to string now my middle beading position it in the middle. Now what I’m going do is I’m going to weigh six balls over, weighing the first one I started with.

So one, two, three, four, five, six. Depart from it. Pull tightly, and I’ll show you how to do that one more occasion. Pick up ten follow through the first beading string on your bigger middle beading position it in the middle weigh six beads one, two, three, four, five, six follow through it there are still you have your daisy join. That is all there is to bead knitting a daisy chain. Depart to Beadaholique.com for all of your beading render needs !.

How To Make a Dragon | Polymer Clay Tutorial


We are going to make a dragon today I was inspired by dragons and beasties onDeviantArtt that determined me wishes to design my very own dragon I’ve determined 2 3D dragons before the second is toothless back in 2014 which I do have a video on compiling it and the second dragon is foxy or pirate inspired dragon back in 2015. Now this is my third age making a dragon and this is a wintertime dragon based on my own design. What’s important in this tutorial is the technique and the thought process that I went through when developing this beast so I don’t want you to follow this video just so that you can recreate the exact same dragon but to exploit this video as a guide on how you can start to design and create your awfully own dragon or other creatures.
I will too show you how I made this wintertime seeming context. First I sketched out roughly on how the dragon would be examined like from my head but I did make changes as I start developing it with clay and oh, I have to apologize for the lighting in this video it was really bright so I had to darken it down and caliber isn’t that good I’m sorry about that. What I’m doing here is i’m exercising aluminium foil as the armature I merely deteriorated the foil into the shape of the Dragon that I have sketched out. The armature is for subscribe and to save clay too abbreviate the force of the Dragon. Then start lending the clay to the armature you can use any shade you miss. Start wrapping the clay on the armature. It’s better to wrap from the bottom up because it is easier to smooth out the seams. When designing a dragon you have to think about what kind of dragon you want to reach, what is the background legend and are there any power the dragon owns and so on. Visualize about the topic to your beast. Mine is a wintertime topic and the dragon is a gatekeeper or a gate guardian that’s why she will have a key.

Some other themes can be those four aspects of ardour, sea, hurricane, and earth. Or you are able to make a hybrid of different animals you like. Dragons are very flexible to design and the likelihoods are interminable. formerly “you think youre” does so with smoothing out the seams, start lending more clay to chassis the head and the neck. this is only the upper organization component. You want to smooth out the surface just as much as possible but if you can’t, you are able to ever make up a design that can envelop up the imperfections.

As you include clay should be considered the percentage and their own bodies organization of this beast, do you want to have a muscular organization build or a skinny one? Likewise compare the size of the head to the body. If “you think youre” making a cute child dragon, the head is usually big than their own bodies. I’m purporting for a adolescent type of a dragon so I miss a skinny and symmetrical organization and facial aspects. formerly the upper organization gapes good, take another pellet of clay and roll it into a cone shape.

This is the tail for the dragon. To connect the upper organization part and the fanny, I use a ball tool to indent the wider dissolve of the fanny first then connect and to smooth out the seams to reach their own bodies into one entire portion instead of 2 fragments. ball tools are available on my etsy patronize if you are looking that, by the way, merely shedding that in. another significant design phase to think about is the color of the dragon or other creatures. The colourings usually depends on the topic, for example, I’m focusing on a wintertime topic and I instantly thoughts about white because of snow, light-colored blue because of the coldness of wintertime. Quite much the characteristics of the topic that you want to create. Then I start to work on the head, I’m starting with the eyes first and I squandered this diamond chassis feline eye’s stone. I have other colourings available on my etsy patronize if you want to use this type of stones for your formations too. Formerly I determined the indentation for the eyes, residence the stone and thrust it into the clay then include the eyelids to cover up the bumpy edges.

For the rest of the head is certainly up to you. is certainly up to you. You can design it in anyway practice you miss. you are able to have cat like ears, include some tusks, spikes, proportions and so on. Have fun in designing your one of a kind beast. As you design, should be considered where it comes from, what type of beast it is, “re coming” with a entire legend for it and open it a name.

Make it personal so I’m not going into every single little steps or details on the designing component for my dragon but impede in judgment that as I was making this I certainly just wanted to incorporate just as much detail as possible so that I could treat up the shortcomings and you are able to not see it on the camera but there are a lot of shortcomings and dirt on my dragon. As a answer, I supplemented a lot of spikes to resemble ice.

I like to add some gemstones and jewelry to this dragon to give it more shade and temperament. So merely decorate it in regardless I miss or any practice you miss for your dragons. here I’m exercising glow in the dark clay for the tusks, there are many different appearances and qualities out there, but I exited with twisting 2 fragments of curls together and open it a fragment of curve. As you can see here I have supplemented some gemstones near the eyes, some spikes around the ears and the neck, also on top of the head. For the spikes on the back I use glow-in-the-dark clay. This is inspired by a toothless and the glow-in-the-dark aspect help to reach this dragon a little bit more magical. If “you think youre” stuck on designing your dragon and don’t know where to start, you can find inspirations from animations, movies, your babies, journals, other artists’ formations, quality and even your dreams.

My revelation received from looking at other artists’ formations and I borrowed a bunch of journals on dragons merely to understand more about this mythical beast. I have one large-scale and one small-scale pellet of clay. The large-scale one I’m mold it into a soft margin triangle and this is the big thigh for the dragon and the small one is the foot. Dragons have many kinds of paws and the chassis depends on what you are going for your dragon. Again you are able to should be considered the position that you want your dragon to be in. I selected a sitting position since it’s easier to make for this video’s determination. I like to mix the thigh to the body instead of merely putting side by side. Mixing the clay together will help to secure the fragments stronger. The paunch of the dragon is fairly grime, I know that you can’t really see it on the camera and I didn’t feel like emptying it with rubbing alcohol so I chose to include some light-colored blue color in fragments for defining the belly or the tummy.

Every move you reach is a member ofthe conceive and it certainly cures if there is a legend to go along with the dragon. The legend helps to define or rebut design investigates such why is the paunch in blue instead of orange or why there are spikes and so on. Sometimes I can over decorate this dragon so I had to step back and look at it from afar to choose what needs to be added or taken away. For some reason I appear the head is extremely empty-bellied and cold so I figure I should be add some hair or mane to this dragon. This reminds me of Jack Sparrow’s hairdo.

If the clay doesn’t stick to each other include some TLS or roast and ligament for stronger components and this is how the winter dragon looks like so far. Now I’m working on the fanny and one of the books I’ve speak established several different ideas for the fanny chassis and determined me think what chassis I should give to this dragon. The fanny is actually quite important so don’t skip this part. Since it’s a wintertime dragon, I chose to twist white and light-colored blue shade clay together in accordance with the arrangements of icicle and reach several of this to be attached to fanny so it will look like ice sounding out. I address some TLS for better attachment. You can reach the fanny really simple or make it super detailed.

alright, so here are the 2 arms for the dragon. One weapon I want it to touch the foot and the other to touch the key. The arms are quite simple to reach, I merely roll the clay into teardop appearances and then divide the digits, or the claws, or paws, I don’t know what you call it. but yea the arms look like feline paws, it’s cuter this practice and easier to reach. so one weapon is straight and the other one has a bit of curve to it. Since this dragon is a door Guardian it is appropriate for her to have a key. I got this key from banggood.com I have the link down below. I initially was just thinking about her bracing the key in both arms  but that didn’t work out so one weapon stroking the key is a simple solution. I affixed one of the arms in this position so that the key will go under the paw or the dragon’s hand.

To treat the shortcomings, I’m going to add a bunch of these little rice like fragments to the arms, the back and the thighs. It’s good to have different sizes and you are able to introduced it pretty much anywhere you miss but I miss to cover up the shortcomings. Moving onto the most exciting and challenging component is compiling the offstages. There are many different types of offstages out there and I want to go for an angel like offstages because when I hear the word trustee, I think about angels.

There is no right or wrong design so don’t be scared to design what you miss for your beast. I know the offstages are going to be quite heavy so I have to use wire to maintain the overall chassis. I’m exercising 22 estimate wire here and blending into the chassis I miss. It’s a bit tricky to get two offstages exactly the same so I eyeballed the chassis and the size. You can check by them by bracing them side by side and look what i found feature methods, up and down to see if they are close in shape and size to each other. Then I positioned it onto the back of the dragon merely to have indentation for the wire. Afer that, take the wire out and start embracing it with clay. Cut out the chassis you necessary and wrap the clay around the wire. This doesn’t have to be excellent because I will more clay to it later on. make sure to leave some wire discovered on the component where it connects to the back of the Dragon. Once the first stage of the offstages are done, put them back to the dragon and you may appear the offstages are wobbly which quarry did so I supplemented more clay on the link point to help strengthen the offstages for moving down on the back.
Formerly the offstages appear strong on the back it is high time to cleaning process any dust particles and fingerprints that are still noticeable. I use this rubbing alcohol and a small graze or you can use a Q tip-off to clean up any dirt molecules. Before putting the dragon within the oven to roast I want to make sure the offstages won’t break-dance during baking because I use a wood stove which has a supporter inside that could place greater pressure on the wing. So here I’m exercising 22 estimate wire for subscribe. Basically I’m bending the wire into a rectangle chassis and draw the 2 deaths apart so that is able to stand. Now is a picture showing where I would place the wire stand for subscribe when I roast this dragon. Now is the time to roast this in the oven for 5 minutes exclusively to let the offstages thicken so that I could include more clay to it.
The purpose of prebaking is aimed at preventing from messing up the constitute of the offstages. This is prebaked and as you can see on the right wing, I have once set more clay on it. That’s pretty much how I miss the offstages to look like and I’m going to show you how I did it. You can look up reference pictures of offstages to get inspirations. I miss the offstages to have the same composition as the hair or the mane so I roll out a bunch of curls and applied some TLS on the wing first before locating the curls on. Unbaked clay doesn’t affix well to the broiled clay that’s why you need some TLS or roast and ligament for compiling sure the fresh clay stay on. I first included the part backstage with the long curls then shorter curls for the second bed. Having different mantles helped to create publication and degree. Now I need to cover up those bumpy rims on the wing so I determined teardrop appearances and drop them into thin pieces then start locating them under the offstages and the bumpy rims. Make sure to have different sizes. I pretty much merely overlap each portion like this.

Formerly I get to the edges I wrap the clay from under up then include the rest of the details on the areas I miss. I supplemented a great deal on the back to help support the offstages and to cover up the seams. the last fragment of detail is to add some pearlx gunpowder on the wing. I use several different colourings to appreciate which ones came out better.

A slight hint of amber is neat to the offstages. I too supplemented some blue for more of cold feel. Formerly I’m done powdering it’s time to roast this dragon again. But this time I broiled it for 20 hours. I use polymer clay which is oven bake clay but if you use breeze cool clay, then you don’t need to roast it. This is all baked and oled down, I’m referring some gloss to the offstages to close up the pearlx gunpowder because because it can come off if you don’t glaze it. I have this specific gloss may be consulted in my etsy if you need it. We are not completely done more, well, this part is optional so you can choose to make it or not. I want to make a scene or cornerstone for this wintertime dragon to sit on so let’s begin by making the quartzs which I meant to be ice.

First shape or form the white shade pipe cleaners into the chassis that you miss for the quartzs. I’m making large-scale and small-scale ones merely to have some variants and affix fibres to them. The main ingredients for organizing those lustrous quartzs is Borax and you too necessary hot water. I got Borax at Target at the clean segment. So what the hell are you need to do is crowd the large-scale jar with hot roasting sea, yes it has to be with boiling sea or else it won’t work.
Then include Borax to the sea and arouse, I’m just exercising a plastic spoon for this you have to add enough borax in order to grow quartzs so merely impede lending it until the sea becomes cloudy and that it cannot view anymore borax. Then I place some into small-scale flasks and I include blue food coloring to both flasks and arouse. Then confines the string to the pipe cleaner onto a graze or you can use pokes and make the pipe cleaner hang in the pot overnight so I do recommend you do this before you go to sleep.

It takes about eight hours to appreciate a good extent of quartzs growing on the pipe cleaners. Now I’m taking the quartzs out and to bake them I just let them sit on the newspaper towel for a couple of hours. meanwhile I’m going to paint this wooden cornerstone with white acrylic covers. Yeah I did place too much make-up on it. Urgh. Let the make-up cool first before keep moving formerly everything possible must dried I use hot adhesive handgun to glue the quartzs onto the wooden cornerstone. I already took out the fibres on the quartzs. After that I use cotton chunks to cover the rest of the wooden cornerstone and it helps to cover up the hot adhesive handgun on the quartzs. The cotton ball is meant to look like snow but it does look like cloud. I use regular Elmer’s glue to glue the cottons on. Now I’m lending a blue gemstone on key since it has a place for it I’m exercising super adhesive to glue the stone onto the key then situates the dragon onto the cornerstone and standing the key so that the dragon looks like she’s touching it.

Now we are DONE with this dragon. This is my first time going to such an give for a polymer clay assignment although I did have numerou all nighters for structure in college. Man that was such a battle back then. This whole situation made me about three periods to complete I’m very happy on how it turned out and learned a lot on making this. I hope you find this helpful and tag artzierush if you happen to make a dragon or a beast of your own. I currently have polymer clay starter’s kit available amongst other substances I used in this video on my Etsy shop, connect is down below if you are interested. Thank you so much for watching and I hope you experience this video if you do, give me a thumb’s up so I know.
