My sister is celebrating her first Christmas in her new house in Maine. So I made this cheery lobster ornament to decorate her Christmas tree at the beach. This little lobster would additionally be a great addition to a wreath or to use for any redecorating 12 months round!
I made this ornament out of polymer clay in a vibrant crimson. Some sharp tools to reduce out the form and a stamp helped decorate the frame.
I also made a tiny buoy for this ornament. I used a foam ear plug and small dowel for this. I’ve covered a link to the directions on my weblog. .
To start, I drew a easy lobster outline to use as a stencil. You’re welcome to use this drawing to make your personal. I published out this photograph to be about 3 half inches tall.
I rolled out my clay to be a touch more than 1/8 of an inch thick. Don’t roll your clay too thin or your lobster’s claws is probably too delicate.
Using a sharp device, I reduce the outline of my lobster from my clay. Then I used my finger to easy the edges of my define.
GAMBAR3 Next, I stamped my lobster frame with a decorative stamp. This is optionally available, but adds some texture. You can stamp your clay with buttons or the ends of pens if you don’t have any stamps.
Also non-compulsory, I used the tip of an vintage pen to cut a hollow in one of the claws to dangle a small nautical embellishment from. Be cautious now not to put your hole too close to the brink of your claw.
I placed a little metal eye pin in the middle of my lobster head to feature a hanger later.
Then I used a pen cap to make a little smiley face on my lobster. Two little balls of white and black clay created eyes for this lovely man.
When my lobster changed into complete, I transferred him to some foil for baking. I followed the manufacturer’s directions for baking my clay.
When my lobster was cool, I lined him with some polymer clay glaze. This is non-compulsory, however allows bring out the element.
To whole my decoration, I wanted to add a touch nautical detail, so I made a small buoy to dangle from my lobster’s claw. I made this out of a foam ear plug and small dowel, and you may find the educational for making this buoy on my weblog.
You may also use a small jewelry charm like a seashell or boat. You can discover a spread of charms in the earrings phase of most craft shops.
I hung my buoy from the lobster claw the usage of some macrame thread. Then I strung a few ribbon from the center loop for putting.
I hope you like my little Christmas lobster!
