Each player has in chess two Bishops. The Bishop is a minor piece and one of the officers of the royal couple. The Bishop can run as much as he wants, but only on his field color. The Bishop can move in all directions always diagonally. The bishops are offensive game pieces that are moved the most next to the Queen on average. This, however, there are also the figures that are eliminated most likely next to the farmers. The bishop is a new chess piece, which was introduced in the 15th century. Originally it was an elephant that was similar moved like a knight in his place. However, the Central Europeans knew no elephants, so the appearance of the figure was reinterpreted. Therefore, the figure in Germany called Läufer (runner), in England Bishop, in France fou (fool) and in Italy alfiere (ensign). I like the interpretation of the Bishop most, so I modeled this character from polymer clay. I’m using a mold for the pedestal I will rub the pedestal with white chalk. I press polymer clay residues in the mold. I cut off the Fimo. I wrap the pedestal in red polymer clay. I roll out red at Level 1. I roll out red at Level 7. First, I use the thick red. This is the bottom of the pedestal. I pack the pedestal with the thin red. The pedestal should look like this. The pedestal gets a pattern. The pedestal is ready for use. I use black polymer clay for the body. I roll out Black at Level 1. The piece for the body is 9 inches long and 5.5 inches wide. I roll the polymer clay. I smooth the edges. I cut out a circle and a long ribbon. I press the circle on the body. This is the belly of the bishop. I stick the ribbon. The basic framework should look like this. I roll out Black at Level 7. I wrap the basic framework with black polymer clay. The basic structure should look like this. I roll out Magenta at Level 7. I coinage the polymer clay. I put a cloth on the Fimo. I roll with an acrylic roller on the cloth. I cut three pieces. A long piece and two small pieces. I wrap the long ribbon around the belly. I glue the two short pieces. I cut in fringe. For this, I use a knife. The belly band should look like this. One arm is four inches long. I model the two arms. I make holes in the arms. I glue the two arms of the bishop. The shoulders are sloping. As a result, the bishop is not as thick. I model a hand. The one hand should look like this. I put the hand in the hole.
The one hand should look like this. I put the hand in the hole. I stab a wooden skewer through the second hand. I model the finger. The second hand should look like this. I put the second hand in the hole. The right hand gets a gold ring. I put a gold cross on his belly. I put the necklace. I use red and black polymer clay for his coat and cap. I roll out red at Level 7. I roll out black at Level 7. I cut out the template for the coat. I have cut three pieces of the red polymer clay. I put the coat around the body. I decorate the hem of the coat with red polymer clay. The coat should look like this. It continues now with his head. I use a ball of skin color for the head. I push the holes for the eyes. I model the nose. I prick the nostrils. I model the mouth. With the sharp Needletool I model the lips. The face should look like this. I model the chin. The ball must be oval. I model the cheeks. I cut off the bottom piece. I cut the eyes. The head should look like this. My head has a diameter of one centimeter. I insert the eyes. I start with white polymer clay. Brown Fimo is the iris. This is followed by black and then white. I model the neck. I put the head on the body. I model the beard. The beard is made of silver and black polymer clay. I give the beard a structure. I model a mustache. I model the hair. The beard of the Bishop should look like this. I cut out the template for the cap. These parts are for the cap. I model the bishop’s miter. I decorate the hat with red stripes. I put the bishop on the pedestal. As a placeholder my bishop holds a wooden skewer. The bishop comes in the oven. 30 minutes at 110 degrees. I have modeled a golden staff made of polymer clay. The staff comes in the oven, too.
