I was just messing around on Thanksgiving before actually making real food. Wink Nothing is baked. I just wanted to make a tiny thanksgiving dinner and photograph it. The cranberry sauce is pastel shavings and little bits of red clay. The rolls are cream colored clay shades with yellow, orange and black pastels. The turkey shape took me a while to perfect, then I textured it with sandpaper and a crushed piece of foil. Then dusted it with yellow pastel, orange, red, brown, then black. And I rubbed some olive oil on it for the photo. Mashed potatoes are white clay mixed with yellow and the gravy is brown acrylic paint mixed with Deco gel. The green beans are teensy pieces of green clay mixed in deco gel then I shaved some yellow pastel on top for color.

Plates are from Ebay, the silver platter and utensils are from Hobby Lobby Grin

Hope everyone had a good Turkey day!

Wow - that looks delicious!  I could gobble up that turkey (don't kill me for the pun!)

Oh my! This is the most fantastic thing I've ever seen! It's perfect! Looks like something you'd buy for a little dollhouse!!! Can't believe the amount of detail on something so small. I wish I was able to make such tiny things. I love tiny things. Always have haha. Now a real challenge for you would be those teeny tiny people they put in the heads of needles!!! No clue how that's even possible! Smiley
