Note: So sorry for the lack of photos I just decided to do a tutorial and, the paint I’m using is Martha Stewart’s craft paint in Greek Tile and wedding cake.
What you’ll need:
- Clay (air dry)
- Xacto knife
- Paint (blue and white, glitter paint is optional)
- Hair clips
- Glue ( Hot glue recommended)
- sand paper
Find a good reference picture for your headpiece. Take your clay and roll it into a ball, on a flat surface lay some tracing paper (or something similar) and, roll out your clay so it is nice and flat.
With the Xacto knife start shaping the two headpieces into the exact shape in the reference photo. Then put the remaining clay into a resealable bag and let the pieces dry.
Once they’re dry, sand them until smooth then dust them off (with a paint brush or something). Now apply a white base coat (two at best), while that is drying mix one dab of blue paint with 4 dabs of white until it is ice blue. When your pieces are finished drying apply the ice blue paint first (1-2 coats depending on your paint) then make an outline with your darker blue paint and fill it in. Then shape and reshape the darker parts until satisfied.
Once very thing is dry coat it with varnish then that dry then add 3 coats of glitter paint letting each coat dry in between.
And here’s what it should look like (or better):
Take a hair clip and separate the top from the bottom and add some glue very carefully to the top. Now stick it onto the back part of the headpiece and hold it until it’s dry.
Thank you for reading I also have a video on Youtube if you want to check it out.
