Pumpkin Picture Holder

Iš fimo ar kito polimerinio molio suformuojame rutuliuką, jį pirštais suplojame šiek tiek, ir su dantų krapštuku įspaudžiame rieves. Iš vielos ruošiame kotelį- susukame ant pieštuko. Su vielutės galu įspaudžiame skylutę moliūgėlio viršuje. Kepame orkaitėje pagal instrukcijas tiksliai tiek kiek reikia, be vielos.Atvėsusius dažome akriliniais dažais, iklijuojame metalinį laikiklį. ir lakuojame.

Fimo Pumpkin Shaping

To start, roll your clay into a ball. Then, press down on the top with your finger to give a slight dip, like all pumpkins have at the top where the stem is. Our pumpkins have stems, but instead will have a metal coil to hold a photo. You will next need a toothpick. Start at the very top and press the toothpick down to the bottom, using the sides and not the pointy end. This creates the ridges. Continue this around the pumpkin until you get your desired look.

Next you need the coil. I use a 16 gauge crafting wire to do so. Using needle nose pliers, you will clasp the wire at the very end and twist the wire around itself. Cut it off at the desired length.

Before baking, make sure to create the holes that the wire will go in. Do not bake with the wire in the clay. Make sure you allow the Fimo to completely cool before painting or gluing in the wire. If you are going to paint the Fimo, then I would wait until you are completely done painting before you glue in the wire. I generally use acrylic paints.

When gluing, I use a metal glue or multipurpose permanent craft glue.

Once you are done painting and your wire is glued in, use a sealer to hold in the paint and make it more durable.
