In chess, each player has one king. In french the figure is called “Roi d’échecs“. The king is the most important figure in the game. The king can not defend itself. If a opposing figure attacks, the king must retreat. The king can move in all directions, but only one field. Of course the king can attack other characters. However, this must not threaten the king at this moment Is the king surround and nowhere to flee out or be rescued by his own comrades, the king is checkmated and the game is lost. The King is not only ruler of his country but also supreme commander of the army. I have therefore modeled him in armor with sword and shield. For the body of the king I use the color cameo and the template. For the template, check out the info box below the video. I roll out cameo at level 3. I cut out the body twice. In a half I put five pieces of wire. With the second half I wrab the wire. Finally the body of the king looks like this. I bake the body of the king 15 minutes at 110 degrees. For the clothes of the king, I use two colors – red and black. I roll out black at level 6. First the king get tights. I wrap the legs with black. This is followed by the boots. I wrap the feet with black and put on a little toe-cap. I paint the boots with gold and silver powder. For the socket I use the color red, a mold and polymer clay residues. I pollinate the mold with white chalk and press the polymer clay residues in the mold. I roll out red at level 1. I wrap the socket with red polymer clay. I roll out red at level 5. I wrap the socket with red polymer clay. The socket now looks like this. I place the body of the king on the socket. I bake the socket with king 15 minutes at 110 degrees. I roll out red at level 5. I’ve cut out a petticoat for the king. The petticoat I place directly on the tights. For the chain skirt I use black. I paint the black with gold and silver powder. The chain skirt pieces I put on the petticoat. The skirt of the king now looks like this. The upper body of the king I decorate with a six-pack. I bake the king 15 minutes at 110 degrees. For the head of the king I use four colors – black, cameo, white and chocolate. The ball for the head is 1 centimeter in size. For the eyes, I press in two small depressions. For the eyes, I put up white, chocolate, black and white as a highlight. For the eyebrows, I put up a narrow ribbon of brown. In addition, the king gets a mustache. The mustache I place directly over the cut mouth. After baking, I decorate the upper body. I wrap the upper body with black. The shoulder I also decorate with multiple black stripes. As a highlight, I put a little gem on the torso and a red belt at the waist of the king. Finally I paint the torso with gold and silver powder. I put the king’s head on the body and bake the figure 15 minutes at 110 degrees. I roll out black at level 7. For the arms of the king I use the color cameo. The arms holding a small wooden stick, which serves as a placeholder. The forearm I wrap with black. The arms I put on the body. I bake the king 15 minutes at 110 degrees. For the sword I use black and red as well as a green gem stone. The handle is made of wire. I wrap this one with red polymer clay and put the wire into the sword. For the shield I use the template. I cut out two pieces. In the middle I place a piece of wire, so that the king can hold the shield. I roll out red at level 7. The shield I round off with a red border and a little cross. The sword and shield of the king look like this. I bake the sword and shield 30 minutes at 110 degrees. For the hair I use chocolate and a bowl of water. I mix the two components. The polymer clay must be tough as a gum. I put the chocolate on the head of the king. With a needle tool a shape the hair and beard. The king now looks like this. On wet hair I put the crown on. For the crown I use red, metallic gold and three green gems. I bake the king 30 minutes at 110 degrees. In the end I fill the shield with resin. Hello, here I am again. With the chess king my project Fimo Chessmen is finished – juhu. Within a year, I wanted to do all the chess pieces, because I’ve done myself especially hard with tridimensional figures. If you compare the video with the pawn, my first character with the last, my chess king you can recognize a significant development, can’t you? This is the advantage when you undertake a project, that structure is similar. With the playlist you’ve always comparing, where you were once with your skills and where you are now and that’s an eerie sense of achievement. I have now routine in the modeling of figures and could be transferred this to other videos such as the polymer clay coffin with the cheeky ghost. If you want to develop yourself in the modeling, I can only recommend pick a topic and start. The pawn and knight I would do today completely different – but all beginnings are difficult. I’ve already made up my mind a new long-term project, which will commence in late 2015th. Let yourself be surprised. I hope my six Fimo Chessmen please and inspire you. Thank you for watching – your Vroni!
