itsy bitsy burger III by FatalPotato itsy bitsy burger III by FatalPotato
One day I'm going to make a whole bunch of these as beads and string em into a bracelet :plotting:

My wrist is about 140 mm around and each burger is 5mm, so I'd have to spend more than 28 hours to make one bracelet (not to mention assemblage)!  If I charged minimum wage by the hour, I'd have to sell it for over $250.60 to profit!


Just under 5 mm (1/5 inch)
polymer clay, pastels

You must have a lot of patience and steady hands to making something this small with such detail. Amazing

The singular slash also applies.  :P

Anyways, yeah, this is pretty damn amazing.  :D  It looks photoshopped, the level of detail on such a TINY sculpt is unreal.  Seriously though, even if you did make bracelets out of these things, most people get paid LESS than minimum wage…Haha.  And art is pretty fun, even if it is work.  So I don't see why you'd have to sell it at over $200.

well if youre a really good painter, i believe even at that small you can ^^ i sculpted a mini polar bear and you can paint quite a lot of details with the microscope stands (dont know wha theyre called but i have one.) and maybe the smallest paintbrush you can find. and i guess if youre not shaky, you can do quite well :) this person just must be that good

Do you use the same technique as your larger burgers or do you have to try something different because it's so small? Do you need a magnifying glass and jeweler's tools as well? What about the baking time and temperature?
Reply
:iconfatalpotato:
FatalPotato Featured By Owner May 20, 2014  Student Artisan Crafter
Same technique.  I don't use a magnifying glass, but I do use toothpicks and needles to get the small details.  Baking time and temperature depends on the brand.  I have the baking times of some common polymer clay brands in part 2 of my burger tutorial: fatalpotato.deviantart.com/art…

you could make just a fraction of the bracelet burger beads and use spacers in mustard and ketchup colors, or if fries are easier/quicker to make you could fill out the bracelet with those. might be tricky to thread those though.....

amazing! I absolutely don't understand how it is possible to make such a small detailed bead :) BTW! i'm sure that it is worth of 250$. The handmade work is always worth it... you are spending a time on it and what's more you are doing something extremly complicated and beautiful what can't be done by many people on this world :)
