1  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Re: How to get a sno-cone consistency? on: March 01, 2009 07:19:51 AM
No way!  I saw a picture of your sparkly cupcakes with the seed beads and they are awesome!  They really looked real.  I like how the you applied the wrappers to them.  My cupcakes are approx 1/4" tall.  I doubt I could find wrappers that small!

Thank you for your instructions on the sno-cone effect.  I am going to have to try it out.  Now did you use mineral oil during any of that process?

That faux agate turorial was pretty cool too.  I'm going to have to try that as well!

Thanks again!

Hi.  When pieces first come out of the oven, they are still a bit soft.  Once cooled, they will have hardened.  Did you test your piece after it had cooled, or while still warm?

Teapotdnky, thank you for the advice.  I have questions, though.

First, are you grating cured or uncured clay?

Second, if they are already cured, do you add mineral oil to the cured bits and nothing else, or do you add uncured clay along with the bits and mineral oil? 

I make great cupcakes, donuts, lollipops, etc, but I am just not grasping this. 

Thank you again.

Diane, thank you for your response.  I am very familiar with your site, I refer to it often.  

I mixed mineral oil with raw clay and it was like mush.  I rolled it around in my hands until a ball could be formed and then baked it.  It didn't do anything.  It looked like a ball of clay.

I am not able to post the photos that I have.  Here is a link to an Etsy item so that you can see the effect that I am going for.

Thank you again.

Hi!  I am thrilled to have found this group.  You are all very helpful! 

I am trying to make miniature sno-cones out of Premo polymer clay.  I have read to mix mineral oil with the clay, but I need further information.  If anyone has any advice, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you!

Sandy
