Polymer Clay Steampunk Tin by ValerianaSolaris Polymer Clay Steampunk Tin by ValerianaSolaris
Another lovely and unique piece from my steampunk collection! I took a simple aluminium tin (size: 11 x 11 x 2 cm) and covered it with Fimo/polymer clay. The clay was stamped, textured, dusted with Pearl Ex pigments and embellished with clock parts. After baking, the whole thing received an antique patina.

I'm a latecomer to steampunk art but this tin really captured my fancy. There is so much detail yet it seems really quite simple to make. Hope you don't mind if I use it for inspiration.

this is wonderfully ingenious ! Your use of patchwork composition with steam punk works so well. it gives a felling of organic sentience to the peace. T . I have flirted with steam punk but have only one work i fell was successful, however this is very inspiring me to try more.

ValerianaSolaris Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
:-) Thank you very much! The clay should not be too thin, otherwise it does indeed break, and it really needs to be baked according to the manufacturer´s advice. Wishing you much fun with the clay :-)

Thank you!
May i ask you a question about clay?
do I need to put in a cold stove and gradually to add a temperature, and when will it attain necessary, to locate time of baking? i've bought "Proskulpt" to make my first doll doll, so i'm a little scary to bake, wanted to ask someone :)

:iconvalerianasolaris:
ValerianaSolaris Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
With Fimo, I usually let the oven pre-heat until it has reached the right temperature, and then put the clay in. I have never worked with Proskulpt, though, so I am not sure about it.

You might want to try this page, it is in Russian, they might know more about this certain product.

Hope this helps! I would love to see what you made of the clay, so drop me a note!

Do swidanje :-)

Gorgeous piece, Valeriana!=) Initially, I assumed you were using the 'metallic-look' polymer clays. Do I now understand that you apply different colors of Pearl-ex onto any color of clay?

:iconvalerianasolaris:
ValerianaSolaris Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
:-) Thank you, Tom! Right, I use Pearl Ex. I used a brown clay for the base, because I noticed it mostly looks better than light-colored clay.

Ich habe gerade heute eine kleine metalldose bei einer freundin abgestaubt :D Ich hatte mir nämlich schon nach deinen klötzen so was schönes für schmuck o.Ä. überlegt - aber du warst einfach zu schnell :D
habe gerade deine tipps für den anderen comment noch gelesen - backst du tatsächlich den Acryl-Lack mit? stinkt das nicht? oder wirft der keine blasen o. Ä. ?

Hehe, ich habe schon einige Dosen umhüllt :-) Bin halt schon etwas länger dabei. Ja, ich backe mittlerweile mutig alles mit. Gestank ist mir nicht aufgefallen. Es sind alles Lacke auf Wasserbasis, und Blasen habe ich noch keine entdeckt. Ich reiße das Küchenfenster auf, mache die Tür zu, und lasse alles munter vor sich hinbacken :-)

hihi das is auch ne technik
ich habe mich das bisher nicht getraut, weil ich dachte das der lack das backen nicht verträgt, also habe ich immer alles hinterher lackiert
bringt das irgendwelche vorteile es auch in etappen zu lackieren?
