Father Frost polymer clay

Father Frost toy from a polymer clayFather frost from a polymer clay There are a few days left, before the New year, and already all the schools and kindergardens have anBefore the New Year are just a few days, and already all kindergartens began their matinees with the obligatory participation of Father Frost. It was the first time that my son had a "live" communication with the hero of the holiday, and the baby is not impressed with slim thin black eyebrowed lad with a false nose and black mustachessticking out from under a false beard. I had to make up a story that Father Frost does not have time to be everywhere at the same time and he had to hire young assistants.

And since we we live in the south, the assistant is slightly tanner than his boss. And also this is for the sake of the children, sine the real Frost has a majic crook - if you touch it, you'll freeze to death in seconds (this is what he already learned from a fairy-tale Morozko). And since he still was doubting my words, I've offered to make our oun Father Frost, just the way he should look. We spent a great time sculpting a toy from a polimer clay and  a pleasure from this process was clearly more than just matinee. You can join us in creating the next and the last in this year a Christmas tree toy from a polymer clay.
In order to make Santa Claus or a Father Frost out of polymer clay, we will need:

  • red clay
  • Pale pink clay
  • The white polymer clay
  • Acrylic paint yellow
  • Acrylic paint "metallic"
  • Pastel pink
  • Cotton Buds
  • PaperScissors
  • Trimmer
  • Button with a raised pattern or stamp for clay
  • The contour of black acrylic
  • Brush - size zero
  • Acrylic rolling pin
  • Cutters round
  • Cling film
  • Blade

So, to start mash the red clay. I've ran out of it, but there are orange and bright pink plastic - mixing these colors will give a rich red color.

 


Knea the clay until it reaches the solid color. Roll the ball out of it


With a rolling pin to roll out the red plastic.

Cut the pattern out of paper - this will be our trunk. We make it just like we did for the Snow Maiden, but given the fact that Father Frost and taller and bigger so cut a solid body. Place a paper template over the clay and cut out the trunk with an office knife or a blade

Roll out the pink polymer clay and cover with cling film so that the cutting plastic is not stuck in the cutter. Cut out a circle.


Fasten it to the body.


In the same way cut a circle  of a red clay


cut it into two halves, place one half in place of Frost's hat.


Now we need a stamp. I you can see, I have a button with a pattern that imitates frost leaves on the window, but you can use silicone molds for a scrapbooking or embossing

Slightly press a button over the surface of a red clay - Father's Frost suit now is covered with ornate relief.


make a thick "rope" of white plastic and put it into place on the lapel fur hat.


With conventional nail trimmer create "fur" structure.


Using a needle or toothpick outline the eyes. Use a small pink clay ball for a nose

Roll a drop-shaped piece of a white clay into the shoe-shaped strip

Attach it to the face of a toy, this will be a beard. Shape moustashes from two pieces of white clay 

and trim them just like we did for the hat

Shread some of the pink pastel pencil and using a cotton swabs draw a blush

With a black contour draw eyes, with a red - a smile on the face of our toy

Using a needle, draw arms over the trunk with mittens on hands

Fill the outline with a black contour, also draw a big sack with presents

Paint the sack with the acrylic paints with glitter

add more glittering colors and over the whole body with a silver glitter paint, to imitate the sparcles of showflakes on Frost's coat and hat

Bake the toy in the oven, as described in the clay instructions. Our tiny Father Frost is ready to be placed on a Christmas tree!
