4  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Realistic cookies? on: June 12, 2007 03:01:19 PM
Just wondering if i wanted to make a really realsitic cookie, you know how they are allgooey and kind of translucent looking with all the melted chocllate inside? How would i start going about this?
I tried just creating a texture using a toothpick but it looks so pathetic i can't even explain what it looks like. I also tried baking some milk peices before then mixing it into some other clay but that didnt work too well either.

10  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Many questions--Chocolate, whipped cream, fingerprints, textures on: May 17, 2007 11:14:59 AM
1. How would you make a realistic looking chocolate?
I tried with a ball of cream coloured clay and overlapped using  a thin peice of clay but once i started rolling to make it smooth they merged together.

2. Whipped cream?
I don't want to use the TLS way, i want hard clay but to for whipped cream should i just use carving tools?
Example- http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/1766/bagacessds1.png

3.Crumbly clay?
SOme of my clay is extremely crumbly even after working with it for 20 minutes it does not seem to improve.

4. Fingerprints?
It really annoys me seeing finger prints on my work, is there anyway of removing them? I tried snanding but if the peice is quite delicate i don't really want to do that.

5.Texture for foods.
Does anyone have any tehqniues for texturing differnt foods
eg: cookies, muffins...
I don't want just the pin pricking technique
