Create realistic Opihi Shells from Polymer Clay. I've started a new series for "Mastering Faux".
This tutorial teaches you how to create realistic OPIHI or Limpet shells most commonly found in Hawaii.
Iâll show you:
- how to cast properly without distortion
- 3 ways to remove fingerprints without sanding
- how to color the Opihi for what makes them realistic.
I have a set of 3 you can purchase here:
The second photo shows 1 real and 1 faux shell.
The 3rd and 4th photos are only small examples of the kinds of things you can create with the shells.
