Broken Pots
« on: September 22, 2020, 02:25:33 PM »
Just a quick tutorial as I needed some for a build. 

How to make broken clay pots. 

Take a resin or plastic pot, or a bead that you are using to simulate a pot and use insta-mold/blue stuff/omyaru to make a one sided mould of the top, bottom and a side. 

Use milliput/aves epoxy sculpt/magic sculpt to fill the mould and take a brush handle to push it to the sides and top of the mould. 

You want it thin on the sides but not too thin.  If the putty is slightly translucent when holding it up to a light it is too thin.

Wait for the putty to set for 24 hours so it is completely cured.  De-mould and start clipping and cutting each piece.  Try to make it look like natural breaks and glue in place.

I will probably superglue some broken egg shells on this pile too just to bulk them out.

Edit:  I forgot to note.  The original pots are the most excellent details from Crooked Dice.

That is a great idea, and pretty perfect for that little bit of leftover epoxy I seem to always end up with.

Another way of doing this, which I have done in the past, is  to take a miniature light bulb, and with some care crack it.  You can paint it in  terracotta before or after.

Simple method, great results!  :D "make the break look natural" is the trick I'd wager, and not necessarily easy.

Thank you all for the comps.

Cutting directly with a hobby knife is enough to start a natural break.  Not breaking off too much is the real trick. I suspect that the putty would have shattered if I waited for two days worth of curing before I cut them.
