I recently started working at a fun little restaurant that mostly does sandwiches and hamburgers. Ive been wanting to make some polymer clay food for a while, and the only jewelry I can really wear to work is earrings. And thus the Cuban earrings came to be!



The menu says:
The Cuban
Thinly sliced ham, melted swiss cheese, dill pickles, and a dijon mayo pressed between a ciabatta roll.

Here are some of the "fresh" clay ingredients I started with. (The pickle seeds are actually sesame seeds. Everything else is clay.)


I don't have a picture of the fresh colored bread and all of the swiss was used up, but put it all together, bake at 275F for about 25-30 minutes and voila!




And it's only about an inch big. Proof of it's mininess.

Wow!  I am amazed at the detail.  I was convinced it was a real sandwich, and a tasty looking one at that!

The bread detailing and color shading in the ingredients is so nice (drools on keyboard for ciabatta bread.. )

I definitely thought it was a real sandwich and was wondering what the metal was doing there!!  Nice work!

Yeah, you got me fooled too...
Like the others I thought it was a real, small sandwich.
And I was also thinking what's the function of the metal.. Wink

So, well done! Very funny!

Yep I totally thought it was a sandwich!  How did you get that detail into the bread? And did you paint the sandwich or use colored clay?

Thanks! I "painted" the outside of the bread (not the part with the air pockets) with oil pastels before baking. Everything else is just colored polymer clay, mixed for the right colors.

Looks totally real. I thought that maybe the metal part was a toothpick holding the thing together when I saw the thumbnail. Awesome job!

I love it when things look so real.  You've clearly mastered texturing and coloring with your clay.  This is beautiful.  Great job!

Thanks everyone! I'm trying to decide what kind of sandwich to make next, and trying to find the time to make it! Next time I'll try to take pictures before the metal goes in Wink.
