Today I made a very simple clay cell phone holder. And I mean simple lol.
I also tried a bit of an experiment….
The cell phone holder is basically just polymer clay rolled out to about 1/4 inch, cut into a rectangle, imprinted and then rolled.
I don’t have doilies or anything like that in our home so I had to come up with another idea.
As I stood looking around the kitchen for something to use I happened on my Russian icing tips that I still haven’t tried 😳. I figured what could it hurt to try?
It worked! I made rows using the icing tips and then used a wooden skewer to press lines between the rows.
I rolled it up and popped it into a 275 degree oven for 45 minutes, then I turned the oven off and let it, and my experiment cool in there.
It still needs a coat of paint but it works. Chris’ first words were something like “it’s a phone holder for utube so I don’t have to hold the phone the whole time ” lol. Sure!
I did a second one using a metal bbq skewer for texture!
Now for the experiment! I’ve seen pictures of “cut outs” being applied to balloons using air dry clay, and since I don’t have the patience for air dry clay I had to improvise.
I used my white polymer clay again, my dragonfly cookie cutter and a bowl. It is very rough, unfinished looking but at least I now know it is possible lol. I will definitely try this again. Chris even suggested doing maple leaves for Canada’s 150th! Hmm….
I decided to just paint this one black, it hides the multitude of sins lol!
