1  Sweet Treats! Ice Cream Waffle Cones and Oreos With Mini Oreo Tutorial Added in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by thatsneat on: November 24, 2008 06:59:47 PM
Hi! I'm somewhat new here at Craftster and I just wanted to share my newest polymer clay creations. Critiques welcome!  

Mini Oreo Tutorial:
To make my mini Oreos I made a mold of a real Mini Oreo Cookie using Sculpy Mold Maker.
I keep the mold maker chilled and then it softens nicely when you work it.
Dust the mini oreo lightly with cornstarch.
(I ate a LOT of Mini Oreos looking for one that was perfect to make a mold out of)
Tip, the first time I tried to make my Oreo mold by pushing my perfect Oreo into the clay. Unfortunately that smashed my perfect Oreo to bits.
It seemed to work best if you put the Oreo on a surface first and then gently push the clay over the oreo.
Gently remove the Oreo from the mold maker clay and bake your mold.
When making the cookies, I baked the outer cookies first.
Then I placed a drop of liquid sculpey on the inside of each pre-baked cookie to help adhere them to the cream filling.
I re-baked them after adding the cream filling.

2  First completed polymer project--Pop Tart and Cookies in Polymer Clay: Completed Projects by thatsneat on: September 01, 2008 05:02:12 PM
Hello, I am new to the forum and this is my first post. I just completed my first polymer clay project. I'm hoping to get suggestions on how to improve my work. (I only had water color pencils to use for the sprinkles, so the color bled into the icing on the toaster pastry) I'm a little disappointed in how these turned out. I would like to learn to make realistic foods to scale for miniatures as well as fun pastries for jewelry. Any suggestions that might help me improve or suggestions for instructional tapes or books is appreciated. (I also need to learn to photograph my work better.) Thanks!

Sorry, I can only post links to my pics because I don't have enough posts yet.
