Step 1: Tools & Materials
Tools & materials:
-Indian red polymer clay
-Beige/Ecru polymer clay
-Hot glue gun & hot glue
-White acrylic paint
-Pastry bag & Pastry tips
-Orange pastel chalk
-Polymer clay varnish (optional)
Step 2: Let's Get Strated!
Make a base shape out of crumpled foil then cover it with polymer clay. Take a toothpick or a needle and scratch the surface of the clay to make a "cake" texture. (You can also use a toothbrush to add texture.)
Next add colour using soft pastel chalks: Shave a bit of orange chalk powder and lightly dab the powder onto the raw polymer clay.
Step 3: How to Sculpt a Realistic Strawberry
Roll a tiny ball of indian red clay and slightly push down the clay to make a teardrop shape.
You can use a needle to make the seeds of the strawberry. Next, dab a little white paint on the top of the strawberry.
Step 4: Bake the Clay
Bake the clay (following manufacturer's instructions on the package)
=> for Fimo clay: 230°F (110°C) for 30 minutes.)
Allow the clay to cool completely before the next step.
You can use polymer clay varnish to create a perfect glossy finish on the strawberry!
Step 5: The Frosting!
First you will need to glue the "cake" to the compact mirror.
Then fill a disposable piping bag with silicone. Squeeze the silicone through the pastry tip and pipe some decoration around the cake. Create a frosting swirl on top of the cake. You can add a polymer clay strawberry & fake sprinkles on top!
