CROCHET

Hi friends,
            I got bored of making crochet scarves, bags and kulla’s all the time. So I started try something different. 

            Yes! I tried Amigurumi dolls. Amigurumi (in japanese language) is nothing but crochetted, stuffed toys. Typical amigurumi animals or dolls have an over-sized spherical head on a cylindrical body with undersized extremities. These toys can be as simple or as complex as the maker likes. You can make any character using this technique. so many websites are there to teach you how to knit miniature amigurumi dolls.


I made this Geisha Doll recently. I hope you all enjoy this….

CLAY MODELING


Clay Modeling

         Clay modeling is a very simple process and does not require any costly tools or material. Clay modeling allows you to think and give shape to your imaginations. Varieties of clay are available in market like, M-Seal, Polymer Clay, Different types of Dough like air drying, oven drying, and varieties of ceramics etc.

Materials used:
·         I used M-seal for my creations.
·        Acrylic colours
·        Gold and silver dust

How to do?
1.      Mix both resin base and hardner together nicely till get soft dough. (Use talcum powder while mixing, if it is sticky)
2.      Take required dough and make any shape u like.
3.       You have 2 take little by little 2 make tiny objects, because it will start dry in few mins.
4.      It’ll completely dry in 2-3 hours.
5.      Paint your sculpture with the colour of your choice.
6.      Otherwise, here is the tips for creating metallic effect
First paint the whole sculpture with black acrylic colour. Then tap golden and silver dust with sponge. But before the paint completely dries, you should tap the dust.
7.  Varnish the finished sculpture or apply glue n glass. It will become shiny and washable too.



Here is my flower basket made by M-seal.


 This what i've mentioned as metallic effect. This is clay sculpture only, not metal......!

Hi friends,
I came up with an amazing craft, Vasthu tree ie Golden tree with tutorial. Anyone can make golden tree through this 10 easy steps.   Try this, Itz easy  to make….
I hope this tree will bring you all success and goodness…

What you need?
·         Golden wires(20 or 30 or 50)
·         Golden leaves
·         Golden bells
·         Beads (pearl colour)
·         Sounded beads (salangai used in silk blouses)

How to do?
1.       Fold the golden wires of 20 into half. Now you are having 40 wires. (Finally you will get 20 branches by twisting couple of wires to get a single branch)
2.      Now twist all 40 wires at 2inches from the bottom, for 3 inches. At this point, tie up the wires together with one wire.
3.     Then start to make branches here. Take two wires and twist together about 5 times, insert 1 leaf in one wire and twist 5 times then bead in another wire then twist 5times. Repeat these twists till the wire end. At the end, attach 2 to 3 sounded beads.
4.      Make 8 branches at this distance.
