Medium Blights out of Fimo Air

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I plan on crafting some blights out of polymer clay. Today I made the armatures out of copper wire and glue and pined them to some old 20mm bases. I plan on using fimo air polymer clay, decorative sand (maybe some rocks too), and a variety of dried tea leaves and spices. Then I will prime them using cheap spray paint and paint them using cheap acrylic paint. I hope they turn out nice. All kinds of tips, suggestion or criticism are welcome :D

Update: I have put the clay on the armature and molded it into shape.

Fimo air classic that I'm using will need about 20-24 hrs to set. Interesting note, when you apply it in layers this thin it will crack like hell. Usualy I would wait for it to set and then even out all cracks and imperfections using a bit of clay again combined with water. This time I plan on not doing it that way, because I think cracks will make a more interesting texture for them :D I also plan od anding dirt, rocks, leaves, grass and moss to these guys, so stay tuned!
