i like pie more than ANYTHING. I wanted some cherry pie jewelry, but it was so hard to find some that looked good, and didnt cost a fortune. I got inspired by this ring, and wanted to make one ( a pie, I mean). I taught myself how, using teqniques (spell check) from many different tutorials.
For this you will need:
~Sculpy (any version works)
~glass beads in the fruit filling of your choice
~un-used bottle caps
~Clear nail polish (you can use Mod Podge if you're a guy)
~small leftover wire
~white puffy paint (optional)
~patience ( and a LOT of it)
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Making the Crust for Your Pie
1) All pies have a crust. To make one, roll out some sculpy and press it down into the bottle cap. to remove the hangover clay, press the bottle cap upside-down onto the table, and pull away the clay.
2) To make the redges, press the wire -not too hard- into the ridges of the bottle cap
Step 2: A Base for Your Filling
in real pies, the filling isnt only on the bottom. it rises to the top! so we dont waste beads, we can just add clay, and pretend there is filling there. make a ball with the sculpy, and press it down to where it will fit inside the crust -it dosnt have to be perfect!
Step 3: Making the Filling
For some pies, you want to skip this part. it dosnt mean there will be no filling, you will add it later. If your pie is going to have a weaved top, skip this part. If you are going topless, skip the next step.
To make the filling, press the glass beads into the Sculpy, trying to hide the white. You might have to turn some sideways. Try not to put any on the crust. That is your filling!
Step 4: Making a Top
ok, if you just did the last step, skip this one. its only for weaved tops, and requires a lot more patience. roll out some sculpy until its thin. cut it and put a couple (facing the same way) on the pie. dont push down! weave the others horizontally into the pie, and press down -not too hard- when you're done. then stick beads inbetween the weaves with the teweezers.
Step 5: Baking Your Pies
Ok, if you searh it up, you're supposed to turn your oven to 275F (135C) and bake it for 15 minutes. For some reason, whenever I bake it in my little oven, it makes the clay turn a golden brown. I realized I liked that, because it was the perfect color! For this to happen in your oven, you kinda have to sit and watch it, then pull it out when the crust is a color you like.
Step 6: Whip Cream!! (optional)
If you want, you can add whip cream with some white puffy paint in the middle. The Puffy paint lowers at it dries, so you can add extra layers if you wish.
Step 7: Seal Your Pie
Once your pie has cooled, seal it in with a couple of coats of clear nail polish (or Mod Podge). This smothes it out, and makes the beads more shiny (sorry, you cant see it on camera).
Step 8: Your Pies Are Done!!!
Now you can make whatever you want of your pies! I've included some of the different pies i've made, and I hope you like them! You can turn them into rings, necklaces, napkin holders, hairpins, the possibilities are endless! Thanks for reading my 'ible!
