Well, friends, it's time to share my secret of how I make realistic redcurrants.
To make a twig, you need:
- epoxy resin
- polymer clay
- cold porcelain
- oil and acrylic paints
- disposable containers for mixing components.
To begin, see a living twig of redcurrant, look at it properly to see its main features and size proportions:
I mix resin:
Use a wooden stick to make resin drops:
This is how you can learn if the drops are dry — use a test drop for that.
5 hours gone. Put the stones on the resin drops:
Take a drop from the surface and shape it:
Roll and wait 2 more hours to see the drop is dry:
Make the leaves:
Insert a wire:
It's a little more difficult when drops are completely dry:
Leave the bead for final drying:
I use Naples Yellow to draw veins on the berries and test it on my nail:
I use stained glass paint to paint the berries and leave them transparent:
Remove excess paint:
Leave to dry for 2 hours:
Meanwhile, make the twig out of cold porcelain, paint it soft green and knead:
Curve the twig:
Make the leaf a shape:
Here I used oil paint.
All is done!
I wish you success!
