Summer... country house... and, of course, black currant in the garden! Such beautiful and delicious berries you can't help modelling!
Get down to business! Take:
1) the main stack;
2) a stack with balls (smallest);
3) nail scissors;
4) clay (I use Thai clay only);
5) leaf mold but better take a live leaf from the bush;
6) latex or PVA glue;
7) wire 26;
8) round-nose pliers;
10) paint thinner for oil paints;
11) oil paints: Herbal, Medium Yellow (any yellow), Carmine or Madder Lake Red, Mars Black (or any black), Titanium White, any blue;
Not in the picture, but also useful:
14) brown fluffy powder.
First, make blanks for berries:
Make polymer clay any colour you need by adding oil paints and kneading in a piece of film:
Apply a slightly convex shape.
Move on to berries:
Make the colour you need for the tails:
Let the berries dry and start shading them:
To make the berries shine, covered them with latex glue:
Collect the berries and leaves in a twig.
You can compare the clay and live twigs :)
