Tracing Stencils for Dimensional Paper Clay Art with Rogene Mañas

“So the first thing I’m going to do on my nice smooth piece of clay is I’m going to just put this off to the side here and now I’m going to trace around that actual actually that’s remind me that that’s upside down to you. So turn it around here. If I put it right in the middle of the clay, then I, then I’ve, you know, have to roll it out again. And I want to keep all that because I have all these other leaves and stems I’m going to put on there. So I’m just going to take a ballpoint pen and go over my bird with a ballpoint pen. In terms of pressure. It’s the same pressure as if you were riding on it. You’re writing on a paper, but you also, you know, you can poke through it. So, and I probably will do that a couple of times. “

Applying the Fur for a Fantasy Fox Posable Art Doll with Jenny Roemmich

I’m going to put a little bit glue down, trying to get it as flush to the face as you can. So what I mean by that is it’s not bubbling up off your face. You just want a really thin layer. This is where that nozzle comes in useful, and you take your nippers. Let’s see if I can get this up here to take your nippers, find your edge, and then just cut off some of that for. So with fur, so you don’t have to cut a ton. I cut a little bit more than I normally do. I usually cut about this much, just so I have a little bit to work with. If you have a straight edge, great. If you don’t cut a straight edge and you can feather it too, if any of you have done Cedar makeup or anything like that, what I mean by feathering is you’re going to put your thumb. You’re going to slide it back a little bit. So what it’s doing to the fur is it’s taking this top layer and it’s scooting it back, but the bottom layer is still on this finger. And so it’s staying forward. So now I have a little bit of variation in where my foot is going to end up. So it’s not a straight blunt line. It’s more feathered.

Pinning the Fur for a Fantasy Fox Posable Art Doll

So you start with your elbows and this is the trickiest part because you’re first going all kinds of directions. You make sure to pin the elbow first because these parts lining up is the most important. They are not actually elbows. They look like elbows and that’s why I’m saying it. And you want to make sure both first your edges are right next to each other, and then I’m just working that fur down. So it’s not going to be in my seam. And just make sure when you’re pinning you pin on the same side. And now you can start working your way down the legs in the belly. I usually pin the belly next, just because it’s usually a little bit cleaner. You just make sure you’re first going down on this body part. I usually pan a little bit more than I need to just to make sure that they’re all gonna stay where they’re supposed to go when you’re sewing. So the reason I trimmed that one little piece is because I have a seam right here and that for that was showing is not going to be inside the scene. So I just wanted to trim it. So it’s out of my way.
