IRON MAN escaping from a FRAME (Avengers Endgame) – Polymer Clay Tutorial


Hey guys and welcome to another Polymer Clay Tutorial! Today we are going to create Iron Man from the Avengers Endgame with this nice glass shattering effect escaping from the frame. I was really looking forward to create Iron Man for a very long time because… …well, it’s Iron Man! I love the movies since they came out the latest ones and now with the latest Avengers movie Endgame. Don’t worry, there won’t be any spoilers, but since then I like Iron Man even more. Let’s get started with the aluminum wire. We create the skeleton first. Maybe some more thoughts on the creation itself why I decided to create the Iron Man breaking free from the frame through the glass. Well I have… How to say that? I have too many creations too many characters standing around everywhere on all the shelves and now I thought it would be time that I would be able to hang them onto the wall. This is why I came up with the idea for this frame creation. The second one. Maybe you remember the one from Super Mario I created, which was also quite fun to create and well and not so normal or regular tutorial. Let’s take this red clay. After a while creating with this red clay, I remembered that there is even a better clay to work with. There is this ruby metal clay also from my type of clay Fimo. Well, but in the end to get the shiny effect that it looks like metal. Red painted metal. I will show you how I did it in the end. I will just take a silver pen and make the whole creation a little bit dirty with my shiny finger going all over the creation and it looks fine. But if I had to recreate the whole creation, I would go with metal clay only. Later in this creation we will also use silver and golden clay, but let’s focus on all the details. I spent a lot of time on the front on the stomach and chest because this is very characteristic for this for the latest Iron Man suit. Ned Stark, yeah. Almost. I am still in the game of Thrones mode after publishing the intro yesterday. I hope you enjoyed this project. I meant Tony Stark, of course. this is one of my favorites suits although I think I liked I don’t know the names of all the suits, but the one with a circle on the chest. I think I like this even more from design perspective. Now let’s bring in some silver clay and don’t make… Well, it should be a very thin layer of silver clay, but also the golden clay that the whole creation in the front doesn’t get to thick. It should be only tiny details, nice tiny details. You may also decide to make them with a pen, acrylic pen, for example. If you have a pen which can be used on clay. Now we have to remove some of the red parts again, but I wanted you to see the whole creation to get a good feeling for the proportions. And now we will put all the silver clay on top for the shoulder parts, for the neck. This will be the very characteristic part for the neck. With red clay and we will take the scalpel for all the tiny details. Well, there will be the head, of course but in the end every tiny detail counts. Now this is the metallic black. The pearl black you can get and it’s also quite shiny especially after oven hardening. A very thin layer of golden clay for the shoulder armor. This looks really nice. I already like how the suit looks. Of course, this will change a lot, especially when working on the face and also on hands and feet. I think these are the most important body parts that a creation can be recognized as let’s say Iron Man or the Thanos I recently created. So when concentrating and when focusing on details you should do this with the head, with hands and also with the most characteristic thing of a character. For our Iron Man, this would be the chest. I think the chest is also very important that Iron Man can be recognized as Iron Man. Now I try to get the red clay into shape. We have to remove some for the legs in order to fill in some more golden clay. And so far I’m quite happy how the creation looks. Normally while creating I don’t have much confidence because it just looks like a bunch of clay which is not in form, which can’t be recognized at the character I am creating, but after a while I feel more and more confident. So when you are creating or whatever you are doing and you don’t feel quite comfortable keep going! Every creation, everything which you are doing gets better over time. There’s this famous quote: You can’t edit a blank page, which means just start right away although you know that you don’t like it or you could do better, but the process is to do corrections and to do things better after you have done the first steps. I hope you get me or understand what I mean and it’s the same thing with clay. At the beginning sometimes I don’t really like what I am creating because it doesn’t really look like the reference material, but after time and after some corrections it looks like the end result and this is what I really love about clay that you can always shape and change it. Now, let’s place the creation onto the plate which means we are almost there ready to put it into the oven, but we have to create the helmet first. The very characteristic helmet of Iron Man and on this helmet from the latest suit from The Avengers movie Endgame I think it isn’t really different from the older ones. Maybe some only slightly changes were made and I think the creators and the designers from the Avengers movie were also quite careful on how to adapt and how to change characteristic heroes like Iron Man for example. So, the head is finished. Now we can prepare the part where the head will go and the most well, maybe the second most important part on this creation would be the chest with a shrapnel inside. We make a very thin outline. I thought about doing this with a pen but in the end I love how it looks right now, and we’re ready to go into the oven. Freshly baked Iron Man. Oh, yeah. Now, this is what I was talking about. I take a silver acrylic pen. Polish pen, I don’t really know what this type of pen really is called. I don’t mind because we get really nice effects. Look at that. I make my fingers. I dip it into the color in order to get the surface quite dirty, but only the edges and this leads to a look as if the suit was damaged, heavily damaged if Iron Man was in a fight. Yeah, so next working step. The transparent polish was quite important for the shiny metal look, but now I take the frame I told you before. So we will open it. It’s a very nice picture with these elephants, but we want to put in the Stark Tower with glue. I printed it out twice. Why twice? Well, because I wanted to to get in some perspective some pretty effect to get this skyscraper on the right side a little bit. more 3D look. I just put some cardboard underneath. This is the Stark Tower, Avengers tower. I will do the same technique. Also take some cardboard that it really looks nice. Oh, yeah. And we can place Iron Man in the upper right corner. But first we have to focus on the glass, the glass shattering effect. This is some transparent paper cardboard. I have no idea what this is called, but you get it in every bigger packaging where you can see the inside part of a product. They use this material most of the time. And I also take the scalpel to get these shattered effects into it after I got a really nice shape with a scissors. This is the hot glue gun and we will glue it into the frame. It already looks quite funny this effect. Now I would really love to include some wool effect for all the steam coming from the engines under his feet. And this is the fire the blue energy light coming also from the feet and the hand. I used the hot glue gun as well also for the hand. Be careful with these hot glue guns! I had another accident just a few days ago, but not glue gun. It’s really ugly, but I think you were not able to see my wound on my finger. Now I made some more glass pieces. Shattered pieces I will glue all over the creation that it looks like as if time were freezing in the glass. Splinters are flying around Oh, look at the effect and guys, I guess… …that’s it Iron Man escaping from a frame! That’s it for today’s video. I really hope you enjoyed the framed artwork Let me know if you have further ideas for this kind of creations. What do you think about it? Write it down in the comments. I guess that’s it for today. Have a great weekend and take care guys. Bye! What’s the sound of glass shattering? Is it more like… or is it more like… Yeah, that sounds right.
