In these modern times we may have cordless devices everywhere, but have you noticed all the cords we still need? All devices still require cords to charge. And then there are all our other tangled web of electrical cords. Always looks messy, right? Wanting to make some sort of method to contain them, the idea came to use paper towel or toilet paper rolls and/or small metal cylinders wrapped in wax paper, to create a spring action coil. A way to easily get the cords to slip inside and be contained, using a neat and artistic method.
Watch Video Below!
You can see in the video below, the shape of the cord holders.
How I Made Them:
It is pretty easy. Roll out a long thick cylinder or sausage (depends on how long you want your holder ), and flatten it out by rolling it out by rolling a texture plate or roller (see my original texture makers). Don't make it too thin or they won't be strong enough.
I decorated the surface with mica powders. Then I laid the pieces on a designated baking pan on top of kleenex that I puff up. As well, you can use polyester fiber fill. Then your pieces will not get a flat spot.
Bake at 275F if using Premo. Always bake all items for at least one hour, it makes them stronger. Let cool. Remember polymer clay is a plastic, not hard like earthen clay.
Special Holder Design in the video
You will see this holder in the video that is not a coil shape. For this one, I cover a metal cannoli form with wax paper and then wrapped a square sheet of clay in
Hope you give it a try. Let me know how it goes.
