OK so i did my second run was hoping to be the final run on my Clay bride…. well her arm broke off when she was baking….
The first run i had I made an entire tin foil base out for her… arms head and all….she ended up being a little pudgy and her arms were waaayyyy to big… but she was a really good first draft… her proportions were just off.
Well this time I just used the tin foil base for her body shoulders and neck… the arms and head were strictly clay…
Well I could not get her arms to do what i wanted to … like she wouldnt hold up her bouguet and I wanted the other arm giving Rock “horns” well after fidling with her for a while and putting in some toothpicks and stuff for support. I baked her….
NOW i put in all this work on this thing and i go to check it in the over and the arm is just completely broken off…. Well I take it out and try to put a little clay on to see if i can fix it and patch it together and i break her arm off even more.
So now she is completely unusable and I have used my pearls and gems and Even a real tiny diamond on a clay character that I can not even use. I glued her arm on but you can definately tell…. that it was broken in two places
I am sooo frustrated and am feeling like giving up… so now all I have that I can use for my cake sculptures… is the ladder….. I still have no bride and have yet to even attempt my fireman groom 🙁
Does anyone have any tips or suggestions?
