Recently a few people have asked me how to get the brown baked look on clay foods. I've decided to upload a tutorial here because when I googled the topic I didn't find that many easily available tutorials. Anyway i'm sorry if i'm putting up something everyone already knows, but since people have asked i'll assume it's still a super classified secret.

There are a few ways to get the baked brown look but I think the easiest and least messy way is by use of soft pastels.


1. This is a 'raw' waffle, waiting to be toasted/ironed into golden brown perfection.


2. Get a piece of brown pastel and rub it on a piece of paper until you get some powder off it. Pick up some pigment with a little paintbrush.


3. (Sorry for the blurry picture - can't take pictures with one hand!) Lightly brush your brown pastel on your waffle. I suggest you start off with a little pigment and build up if you don't think it's brown enough. Also raised parts will pick up more pigment and look darker - keep that in mind.


4. And that's all there is to it! You probably don't want a chunk of pastel in your waffle like mine does though.

Why not? It's both delicious and nutritious.

(go to bed and stop drinking beer you silly, silly person. Make a comment about how this is so logical but you never would have thought of it on your own, then go to bed)

Uh, this is so logical but I never would have thought of it on my own. I'm going to bed now.

I wondered for a really long time too! This and how to mix dough coloured clay - you should've seen me the day I figured it out I was so happy everyone thought I went insane.

When I clicked on this I was thinking "oh no, go on tell me SOMETHING ELSE I need to buy." Which always happens because the more crafting stuff you buy the more you realise you need to buy!
This is SO nifty and I am super, super happy that I have pastels in my house and that this is such a simple and effective method.
Thank you, you little genious you! xoxo

It's ok, I was kicking myself when I saw how simple it was too. Before I tried to paint the look on and I am definitely no artist!

Thank you so much, I'm really flattered to be called a genius  Cheesy.
I know exactly what you mean! Actually this forum is terrible in terms of money saving because I'm always finding things I can buy or I should buy to create some new effect.

Instead of soft pastels i use oil ones, you just have to rub the bristles of the paint brush on the pastel and then brush on the clay. Smiley
I saw how to do the method with the soft pastels in the Polymer clay cookbook
