On the chess board each side has two chess towers, which are called rook in English. One game figure guarding the kingside, the other one the queenside. The rook can run as much as he wants. Forwards, backwards and sideways, but not diagonally. It can run on white and black playing fields. The rooks are one of the most valuable characters in the game of chess and should be protected as long as possible. Once per game, it is allowed that rook exchange places with the king. This is called Rochade. In Latin the rook is called roccus, which means as much as fortress. I will show you now my interpretation of the rook from polymer clay. For the chess rook I use three colors. Black, red and beige. How did I modeled this Mold, you will learn in the video for chess pawns. Thus, the polymer clay does not stick, I pour chalk into the mold. I push the beige-colored polymer clay in the mold. I remove the polymer clay from the mold. I cut off any excess polymer clay using a knife. I roll out the red at Level 1. The bottom of the chess piece should look like this. I put the bottom on the Fimo. I cut out a circle. I use four equal-sized wooden sticks. I glue the wooden sticks with tape. I roll out the beige at Level 1. I wrap the wooden sticks with the beige polymer clay. I smooth the edges. I glue another piece to the basic framework. The piece is 2.5 inches long. The chess rook becomes thicker below. I smooth the transitions. For the spire I use the templates from the description box. I prepare the three templates in beige polymer clay. I assemble the spire. I shut the upper hole of chess tower. I stick six merlons at the spire. I glue the spire to the rook. I fill the spaces with thin stripes. The basic framework should look like this. I stick the chess rook on the bottom. The basic framework comes in the oven. 30 minutes at 110 degrees. I roll out Black at Level 7. I wrap the basic framework with black polymer clay. The disguised chess rook should look like this. I roll out Black at Level 1. I cut stones for the door and the window. I glue the stones on the chess rook. I model a door and a window. I adhesive the wainscoting into the door and the window. In the window I glue a red highlight. In the door I stick a red cross. On the spire, I also stick a red cross. I coat the chess rook with silver powder. I cut out two red stripes. I glue the red stripes on the chess rook. This creates a nice contrast. With a tool I carve a wall pattern in the chess rook. I roll out Black at Level 5. I roll out red at Level 3. I model a coat of arms. The coat of arms has a red cross. I stick the coat of arms on the chess rook. I roll out red at Level 7. I wrap the bottom of the chess piece with red polymer clay. I cut off the overhanging edges. The chess rook comes in the oven. 30 minutes at 110 degrees. The chess rook should look like this after baking. I pour resin into the spire. When the resin has dried, the chess rook is ready for use.
