HAHA! I finally finished the Orbo Necklace tutorial!!! Thank you Christmas break!
I used regular graphing paper and tracing paper
Super Sculpey: I used FIRM, but the regular one will work, as well.
I used Super Sculpey tools I bought at a craft store by me. (Iíd advise against using regular clay sculpting tools on Sculpey because they are insanely more harsh than necessary, and pretty much useless on it)
Wire: Iíd use a thicker wire, especially since it is working as a support.
I bought the baking pan I used in the cooking section at a craft store by me.
The oil based clay I used is Roma Plastilina #1 (soft). I recommend sticking with a softer firmness because it takes a while to heat it up and get it to an easily moldable consistency. [link]
The molding material I like to use is Oommoo. Itís fairly easy to work with but it takes patience. There are SOOOO MANY molding materials out there at our disposal. My advice is GO! Go research molding materials. There are ones for every budget and skill level. [link]
Resin: The usual, really easy to use. Just follow the directions and BE PATIENT! [link]
Spray paint: Something metallic. Sad fact: spending more on metallic spray paint means a more authentic metallic look. It pays off to do your research on metallic paints and be willing to spend a bit more. Now, Iím not saying you should go buy the most expensive paint on the shelf; those run about $25 dollars or so. I usually spend between $5 and $8 a can, but itís absolutely up to you. (Just some humble advice Iíd like to pass on to you, based on experience).
Spackling putty: Itís the stuff you can buy at any hardware store to patch holes in walls. Iíve become quite attached to it. I use it to fix minor imperfections on many of the clay and resin pieces I make, and it blends very well with the original material.
Hope this was helpful and if you guys have any questions, please ask. I will answer them to the best of my ability.
