Step 1:

We start with a palm sized lump of sculpey clay.

Manipulate the clay into a ball, then place onto the parchment paper, on a flat surface, and start to roll out.  As we are aiming for an irregular shape, and because we’re going to add some texture, don’t worry too much about the clay being even. 

When you have the clay to the size you want use the rolling pin to make it thinner along the outside edge.  This process should create a ‘wobbly edge’ which will add to the fried egg effect we’re going for.  If you find that your egg is looking too even, shape it with your fingers.

Pre heat the oven - mine was on 220…

Once we have our desired shape, it’s time to start adding some texture.  I used a chopstick, small screw driver and my finger nails to make it look like it had been attacked by extremely hot oil!

When the surface is adequately ‘scarred’ it’s time to pop it in the oven.  The manufacturers usually say to bake for about 15 minutes, but I always find that 10 is sufficient and, as you can see, I singed the edges (again!)

Once baked, leave the ‘egg white’ to cool down completely.
