Polymer Clay Tutorial of the Month:
Clay Bundled Babies
by Joyce Geleynse
It’s the first Tuesday of the month and you know what that means?! It means that I introduce you to our polymer clay tutorial of the month! [Click here to see past tutorials of the month.] This month we’re continuing our journey of sculpting. Yesterday I released the Face Vase Tutorial that will show you how to sculpt your own Face Vase for flowers, pencils, or whatever you want to use it for. Today we continue the sculpting journey learning how to sculpt a babies face with Joyce Geleynse.
Today I bring you someone you may not be familiar with. Joyce Geleynse was kind enough to send me her tutorial back in March [yes, you can submit your tutorial here for review and possibly to be featured as the tutorial of the month]. Joyce lives in Canada and as you can tell from her Etsy Shop, loves making clay babies! As our “Polymer Clay Tutorial of the Month” writer, let me introduce you for a moment to Joyce’s “Clay Bundled Babies” tutorial.
Polymer Clay Tutorial of the Month
Sculpting faces (especially ones that resemble real people) can be quite challenging. This tutorial is great. Joyce takes complex sculpting procedures and breaks them down into simple instructions. And the best part? Her tutorial requires just a few simple tools you likely already have. In reality this is a mixed media tutorial combining both polymer clay and fabric. Joyce will walk you through the sculpting of the babies face, making of the neck, body armature, hat, and even how to swaddle that lovable baby in fabric.
Later this week we will have a giveaway from Joyce of one of her tutorials and even a clay baby that she has generously donated. Join me all throughout the month as we celebrate sculpting faces, as well as this adorable Clay Bundled Babies tutorial.
Thanks for joining me today,
