Tutorial : Clay Shoe

 Hey lovely people! How are you guys doing? I've been so busy these days that I barely have time to do any crafting. Thus, my blog being less crafty. I'm currently working on a wedding project for BoxOfHobbies, but it won't be shown here till mid March. Anyways, I made something last night and thought I'd share it with you! Here's a tutorial on making polymer clay shoes. It's my first try on it. Hope you enjoy it! BoxOfHobbies shall be making more of these to be sold as keychains, necklaces, earrings and others! You could grab one from there soon if you're too lazy to exercise your fingers. Enjoy!
 Pile up some random scraps of unwanted clay and form a pill shape. This would be the support for the foot. Using a blade, cut out blue piece. It sort of look like a skateboarding slope to me. You could try drawing one side on a piece of paper, folding it into half and cutting it out. Then, place the paper on the clay and start chomping away the unwanted bits.
Continue on by adding a long oval piece on the top and a semicircle piece (different colour) at the very front part of the shoe. 
 Blend in the sides that are not smooth, be sure not to blend it till the lines could not be seen. Add a long white strip on the very bottom around the whole shoe.
 Cut out long thin lines of white or a colour of your choice, and fix up the lacing. This should be simple enough.
 And tadaa! Your shoe is done! Add a headpin or an eyepin, fix it up and turn it into a keychain or accessory of your choice! That is all for the shoe! Give yourself a clay and a pat on the back for getting through this tutorial!
And what's this? It's a texture maker I bought from a craft shop! It's my very first texture maker. It seems like I'm wasting money, but it was calling out my name. I couldn't resist it. *innocent smile*
