Materials & Tools:
• Silicone molds
• Glitter (optional)
• Heat gun
• Relief paste (optional)
• Polymer clay
• Tweezers and scissors
Pour some LC Glassymer transparent into the 3 rectangular silicone molds.
Mix Glassymer transparent with the Glassymer color gel.
One little drop of Glassymer gel is enough to achieve a vivid and transparent color.
Add some glitter to the mixture. This is optional.
I want my jellyfishes very sparkly.
Repeat the process with a different color (magenta).
Pour both colors in the first mold and mix them in a way to obtain a nice transition and gradient.
The Glassymer transparent that was already in the mold will help in the process and will allow, even more, transparent effect.
I left the other two molds with single colors, one blue and another one pink.
Time to bake it in the oven for 30 minutes at 140ºC.
Once it’s baked, allow it to cool completely before removing it from the molds.
Cut the tentacles shapes.
Carefully melt and smooth the edges using a heat gun. We don’t want to completely melt the shape, so I recommend to heat small potions of the piece and allow it to cool before proceeding to other areas.
Fusing the tentacles. Hold the pieces together and, with the heat gun, melt the ends to fuse.
Fuse one or two pieces at the time to make the process easier.
The leftovers can be reused and be melted again to create new projects.
Using a half-sphere silicone mold for the head. Stick, with LC glue, the eyes and cheeks to the mold.
Fill the molds with the mixtures of LC Glassymer transparent, Glassymer color gel (magenta and blue) and glitter. And bake it in the oven (140ºC for 30 minutes).
After baking and while it’s still hot, place the tentacles in the center of the pice to be fused into the head. Use tweezers to keep it in place and allow it to cool completely.
Time to remove the pieces from the molds! Using relief paste just to make the eyes shinier and give it a little bit more volume.
And it’s done! Time to just have fun with these cute jelly creatures!
