Yes, so a friend of mine is a huge fan of this youtube video, and frankly the whole concept to me after seeing it was very disturbing, yet kinda funny... she wanted a whole freakin' collection of all the weird muffins, someday, so I made her very first piece - the "bits of glass muffin"

Youtube Muffin video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1tcR19y7GPM

It's about 2.5" high and, with my luck, the night before making it I accidently broke one of my favourite glasses on the floor, so I added shards of glass from the broken pieces. A relatively dangerous cupcake, and not something you would want your children playing with. After about three coats of varnish though, the shards of glass aren't too sharp on the edges anymore...




As well as this muffin, I made a tentacle cuppycake for a friend of mine! I have made one before, but I like this one so much better! It's different colours than the last one, and is a bit of a different shape. It is complete with it's funky little tentacles wriggling out from the bubbly swamp waters. Yum yum!

That is awesome. I always love clay stuffs. I get excited when I see cute little clay thingys and then I have to (try to) make something. What kind of clay did you use, and how did you get the tentacles so smooth and shiny?

I usually use either Sculpey III or Fimo Soft for my creations. I find it hard to work with a lot of other clays because their too hard and I am too into the claying that I don't want to take the time and do all that conditioning and softening of the clay. To get it smooth, I just smooth it out with my fingers simply put... and for the shineyness I give it a few coats of glaze like Future or Varathane. It works well!

The slimey stuff is made from a mixture of oil paint and TLS. Smiley As long as you don't sell it to make profits, I am happy Tongue
