Mobile Clingies-- a term I just made up to refer to Mascot Straps/Mobile Phone Straps/Accessories.
This is one of my own characters (and still in the making!), to be made into a whole lot of incredibly wonderful colours.
(in fact there's a battalion of octos cooling down to be glossed)
It has been awhile since I last had my hands on clay.
This time I tried a different material and the result is superb. They clay was soft, smooth, easily pliable, and hardens in a few hours. [of course, heating is still required]
I make my own clay and it almost always comes out differently (consistency). It's a lot more fun than buying commercial polymer, but the process is messy, and I hate cleaning up after.n_n"
A look into some of the stuff I made with what little trial clay I made the other day:
Made two of my favourite animals:
Glossed them to make them shinier:
Left them out to dry for a bit:
When working with commercial polymer it almost always shrinks down to 50% its original size; my polymer only shrinks down to 75%. But what I like about commercial polymer is the wide range of colours to work with. Making clay in a whole range of colours is tedious work! O:
And this is my 青いたこ (blue~octo) ready to go on my 携帯電話 (mobile phone):
I want a studded octo next on my psp! :)
More characters coming out in the next few months (to be sold).
I will be posting a new photo for this week's Skywatch Friday.
