Erika, you are the most fun person to collab with. (or watching you collab with others, especially tst)

And I remember watching you do the bird/anthro drawing too! D;< That owl was crazy!

Foreshortening, for sitting. (Or you could cheat like I always do and do a 3/4 or profile angle. XD)

Those two drawings with writing on them are like a typographers wet dream :3 (Um, ew). You have lovely handwriting :D

You make me feel like a low brow cretin! Why are you so cool?

Also if you wanna learn how to do people that are sitting down, then just look at and study people IRL who are sitting down.

Brunzy :: OO= I'll try that thanks!
Zizi :: I-I do? It's messy though! Thanks <3
Sparky :: Will do Cap'n! ty
Toast :: XD thanksssbby<333

----GIANT POST AHEAD

So, this is For LINZ (= But if it helps anyone else...then...*happy face*
POLYMER CLAY ROSE
**The pictures, are pretty self explanatory, so if you don't feel like reading, just skip the text to the next bold step and wing it! That's what I did =P
Image
MATERIALS ::
Polymer Clay of your choice
-I recommend FIMO, it's soft, and easy to condition (make softer so it's easier to sculpt).
-Other brands: Sculpey, Premo, etc.
-To Condition your clay: Just play with it, squeeze it between your fingers, roll it into a "snake" or a ball. O= Just mush with it until it's soft and you feel that you can easily shape it!
Knife
-I use a jelly handle one from this Japanese store XD , It was a dollar fifty, AND it came with a cap, AND you can use X-Acto blade as replacements!
-Be careful DDD::::: they're extremely sharp!
Roller
-...for rolling purposes.
-Look for it in your baking supplies aisle =D
BUT ESSENTIALLY ALL YOU REALLY NEED ARE YOUR HANDS AND CLAY. The supplies just make it easier, and the product cleaner and smoother <3

WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN AFTER YOU TRY:
Image
Euw, look at all that dust from the camera! Cx

Step 1.
Image
Take some of your clay, (more is better than less in this situation, so you have allowance)
and roll it into a "snake" =P You can use your palm and move it back and forth making the clay go horizontal. The thicker your roll is the thicker your petals will be.
-Thick petals crack less, but look less realistic, thinner petals have a tendency to crack under the pressure of the roller, but it will look more realistic, YOU DECIDE =D

Step 2.
Image
Then cut them into smaller pieces =D , it's the same thing here, the longer each piece is the thicker your petals will be. The number of petals will also depend on this, have at least SIX.

Step 3.
Image
Then roll them into balls... ! (=
-You can roll the pieces as you go, rolling them all at once is optional. Put them aside (= These are the beginnings of your clay rose!

Step 4.
Image
Now, take your roller (that's the weird looking white thing on the left) and one piece. You're going to smoosh him!
-Start from one side, and roll to the other, don't put too much pressure on your roller!
-Pressure : The harder you push, the thinner/flatter your petal will be.
-I recommend putting corn starch (or baby powder? OR baking soda??) on your surface before you roll D: The clay tends to stick, and when you forcibly detach it it'll either look weird or TEAR. You don't want that )=
Image
After I rolled, it stuck to the roller...Essentially, that's the shape you should get, kind of oval-ish
- if you start rolling at the middle, then go side to side, you won't have the tapered edges you'll need, so...don't do it.
**the very piece you should use is the biggest, it will be the center of your rose, and will have to wrap around itself**

Step 4.5
Image
Image
now roll it. So first pick it from your surface, then put it down again, the side (top to bottom) that didn't deform while you picked it up should be the side you use as the top. The part of the petal that will show)
-Try rolling it so that the bottom is tighter than the top. The very first piece will roll and wrap around it self like the picture. The rest of the petals will just surround it.

Step 6.

Image
Image
Now we wrap. This step is basically the beginning of the end. From here, it's probaaably going to feel like just repeating the same thing over and over again.
-Place each petal opposite from the last, confused? Basically, just place each petal where the last one ended. So it's like going, front back front back.
-Try not to squeeze your clay... )= They're very impressionable creatures.

Image
...It's a bad picture, I'm sorry DDDD:::: , but ..I'll try ! OK, so turn down the tips of your petals.
-Run a finger down the top and it should fold down a little.
-A blooming rose is a happy rose.

Step 7.
Image
Now add more petals! The same process
-Take a ball, flatten it, then wrap it around.
-Same thing, try to put each petal opposite each other. When you put it right on top of each other, there will be this awkward bald spot D:

Step 7.5

Image
Adding more petals, then turning them down a little at the tip. You're basically done! O=

And here we have our finished rose,
Image
See those cracks? That's caused by:
-Either your clay was too hard, (not conditioned /play with enough)
-You pressed than too hard on the it D: The poor thing.

Step 8. (pictures not available, please use ample imagination)
Pop it in the oven!
-Please use the oven in a well ventilated area, and avoid burning yourself by using oven mitts when taking it out.
-Generally polymer clay(Sculpey, Premo) bakes at 275 degrees Fahrenheit, FIMO however, bakes in less, about 165-166 degrees Fahrenheit. 20-25 minutes should be good enough.
-Let it bake longer (saaay, 30 mins. ?) when you have a bigger quantity, or less if you have just one or two things in there. The longer you bake the more susceptible it is to burning. This will give your baked goodies some horrid brown tinge DDD:! OH NO.
-Use a baking tray, either cover it in foil or use a tray ONLY for polymer clay.
-When baking, I guess Polymer Clay releases some harmful fumes that aren't good. So...I suggest cleaning the oven after D: (WHAT A HASSLE MAN)
-So, just stick the tray in there, put on the timer, set the temp, and have a snack, (I recommend nutella waffles with strawberries)

Some tips and stuff of that sort that you shouldn't really care about since your eyes probably hurt and I've probably made them bled with the acrid picture quality.
-Clean your tools and working space before hand, use some wet wipes or alcohol (BE CAREFUL WITH THIS IT RUBS ESPECIALLY ON FINISHED WOOD AND STUFF) and wipe it dry. As for your tools, yeaah, put some alcohol on tissue paper(or something) and run it down your rolling pin and your blade (careful!)
-Wash your hands, and keep them clean, D: As for the fingerprints...well, I can't...help with that. Cx
-Keep your clay in an air tight container or baggie...D: When it gets air and stuff, it'll harden, and no conditioning will help D:!
-You can use chalk pastels to detail polymer clay, use a soft brush that isn't abrasive so the clay won't take damage.
-For roses, you can use different colours for each layer of petals, and stuff. Oooo pretty ?

Wooow you've reached it this far huh?
I really am sorry that this is so text heavy @ ^ @ DD: If I could shorten it I swear I would!

I hope it's easy to understand (high doubt it) BUT I TRIED ; ^ ;
comments, critiques, it's all welcome (=
THANK YOU .
