Happy What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday once again! I hope today doesn’t find you too frantic as you prepare for Christmas. It should be a time of joy, not stress, right? 🙂

2014 12 09 woyww polymer clay food charms

Today’s work desk shows me working on some fun miniature clay food charms. They are actually going to be used to demonstrate a few techniques in my upcoming CraftArtEdu.com class.

I’ve been wanting to make polymer clay pizza & chocolate chip cookies for some time, and this was a good excuse.  I suppose I could have used plain balls of clay, but what’s the fun in that?

No, I won’t be teaching how to make the pizza or cookies, but here are three great how to videos:

That bowl of stuff in the bottom left, the one that looks like chocolate, is actually Translucent Liquid Sculpey mixed with some solid Burnt Umber Premo clay (which is the perfect chocolate brown color.)

Not the least bit edible, but it sure looks yummy. 🙂

Whatever you’re doing today, I hope you find some time to be creative.

Wondering why I’m posting photos of my desk? Well it’s What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday, the day we all go visiting the creative spaces of creative people all over the world. The blog link party starts at Julia’s.

Happy creating, all!

    1. You are SO right, Nikki. It would be quite a rude surprise if someone were to pop one of these into their mouth, lol.

  1. This is fantastic. Years ago by DB had a key chain with baked beans and he mourned its passing. Now I think you have shown me how to make him a very special gift. 🙂

    1. I’m so glad to have been of help, Sandra. If you aren’t sure how to proceed there are LOTS of polymer clay tutorial on YouTube.

  2. Great fun, Sandy! I just hope nobody decides to eat them.

    Thanks for your visit and your nice comment – glad you like the album. It feels really strange to have it finished at last. As for my hubby’s poor wrist, it looks likely tht he’ll be in plaster for about a month after Christmas – apparently he’s broken one of the most importnat bones in his wrist, for all that it’s so small. It’s a real bore that he’s been told not to drive because Mum and I really depend on him for transport!

    Happy WOYWW,

  3. Well, that’s something different to see on a desk this week! How clever are they, you’ve really got the knack…we could all have a go at making faux food, but you can make it look realistic!

    1. Laura, Fimo and Sculpey III are the two softest clays, and you WILL have trouble with fingerprints. If you care to try again, pick up some Premo, it’s a much firmer clay.

      Happy creating!
