Hello Wednesday All! Today’s desk shows me working on Day 2 of my personal Make It In March challenge. (See the previous post for what I’m doing and why.)
There are several tutorials on YouTube for making a miniature pie using a bottle cap as the pie plate. They were so cute, I wanted to give it a try. Those teeny little blue dots were all rolled out individually, then pre-baked before being added to the pie.
One of the thing’s I’ve noticed about really well done miniature polymer clay food is that you have to look at the real thing (or a good photo) and not just rely on what you think it looks like. Getting the colors and details right is what makes these convincing.
Those cherry pie crust strips needed to be thinner, but I was running out of time and didn’t redo them. I also didn’t have time to add gloss glaze to the fillings before taking the photos. That will add a lot to the realism.
Dunno that I’ll make a career of food miniatures, but these sure will be adorable fridge magnets. Check back tomorrow to see what I make next.
And, if you have some time, check out the desks of other creative folks from all over. It’s a weekly blog hop we like to call What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday and you can find all the details over at Julia’s.
