Working with translucent plastic (how to achieve wonderful effect)

I love to work with translucent plastic, I am very like the effect, which is achieved at the end of the work πŸ™‚ And get this result is not difficult.

1

Required:

Fimo effect transparent white, Fimo soft (or classic) white (normal), and a few pieces of plastic in different shades. Acrylic roller, a thin sharp blade (you can use a razor), a plastic card.

2

Translucent plastic divide into 4 pieces, add a color to each slice (you need just a little bit, just to give it some shade).

3

Mix the color and roll the plastic into strips. White plastic and divided into 4 pieces and roll band 4.

4

On a strip of white plastic flowers put,

5

and spiraling, leaving a small tip.

To get a smooth spiral, at the end of the blade do the oblique slice.

6

and get smooth the spiral.

7

We do the same with the other colors.

8

Make a pattern of spirals seemed to me boring and I decided to resort to the technique of “Chrysanthemum” by pushing a spiral plastic card several times to the center (as shown in photo).

9

We do so from all sides.

10

and we get a chrysanthemum.

11

We do the same with the other sausages.

12

White plastic roll out into the formation, it will be our base.

13

Next painstaking work by cutting sausages. The pieces have to be so thin that shone through them blade.

14

15

16

Cut all 4 sausages.

17

Getting superimpose them on the substrate one at random. The pieces should go on one another.

18

Fill the entire base.

19

Packer to achieve a flat surface.

20

Put on top of the second layer.

21

22

And once again rolled down.
Even on Β more plastic to be seen that the pieces shine through.

23

Cut the desired shape,

24

and send in the oven (at a temperature and time indicated on the plastic packaging).

After baking, you can throw the product into ice water (many believe that from this transparency increases), but you can not throw because There is another view that nothing has changed from the water. Nevertheless, I left him.

25

We took out, dried, varnished and fixed fittings.

26

27

The achieved as a result of the effect is always beautiful
