ABOUT THE AUTHOR
My name is Anna. I am 37 years old and have two little children. I am a mathematician by education, but a creative person at heart. Being on maternity leave, I decided to try myself in polymer clay modeling. I saw the work of others and thought that I could do it too:) I like to decorate dishes and to make brooches. Inspiration and ideas come in the process. I have been modeling since August 2019.
Draw a contour of a deer on paper. You will find the template in the PDF tutorial at the end of this page.
Roll red clay and cut out the contour of the deer.
Same way, roll white clay and cut out a white deer.
Place an LC STENCIL on the clay.
Apply paint to the stencil (I applied with a finger, but you can also use a piece of sponge or a brush). I used white and red acrylic paints.
Carefully remove the stencil.
Repeat with a white deer and red paint.
Place the deer on the mug.
Roll white and red clay into long “snakes” and make scarves for our deer. Connected ends to the heart on the back of the mug.
Put a pattern on scarves, imitating knitting.
Bake for 30 minutes at 110°C. After baking, glue the deers with strong glue. I use superglue, but you may also apply a thin layer of Glassymer Glue or other liquid before baking.
