Yup! First attempt... I wasted some good-sized chunks of clay while making those.. Well, it's a great learning process though!  Wink

And once again, thanks everyone for the nice comments! Hugs everyone~~

Thanx

There are a few of methods (after searching online and reading up some books before jumping into miniature making) to do the glaze on top of the donuts (or practically anywhere that you want to have glaze on..  Wink) but I used the "White glue" method. You put a few drops of color you want to the glue, and mix them up. You then use a toothpick to "brush" the colored glue onto the clay piece. But instead of white glue, I used this clear Japanese Deco Glue which dries to a nice gloss...

As for the cream... I followed this particular method in a Japanese craft book for resin clay. To get the swirl and gloss, you need to use white silicon sealant (the stuff that is used to fill up gaps between tiles..). You put some into a cake-decorating plastic bag, snip a little off the bottom of the bag, and squish it out like you're decorating a cake.. Another way I've seen is to soften Grace resin clay with water to a paste, and use the same method to squish out this paste... But this dried piece will need to be varnished if you want a glossy finish... A third way is to buy this Japanese "whip cream" clay paste...

Hope that helps...
