So I decided to try my own thing this time. With the dango and the bowl, I was following a tutorial. This time I winged it and made a Poptart. The results were not quite what I hoped, but I wanted to try a bunch of different things, like texturing, applying pastel, using liquid clay and inclusions. So I think I accomplished at least that much! What I didn't accomplish was taking pictures of my progress. ( -___-)
I did, however, take a second shot at making a bowl, using a marble-like combination of metallic gold and white. It turned out much better, but needs some sanding and buffing!
To make the pastry color, which on a regular poptart is a fleshy tan color, I mixed some Caramel Fimo with White and then rolled it out.
I think I scrapped the pastry three or four times before I got something I thought was worth brushing with chalk pastels. I used small amounts of yellow, orange and a touch of brown. I tried the brown first and realized it was too dark, but it wasn't really noticeable after baking.
I also made some sprinkle 'canes' using small amounts of Cherry Red with Translucent and rolling it into a long thin snake, baking it and chopping it into little bits. I repeated the process using Tropical Green. And then I mixed the sprinkles into a TLS (Translucent Liquid Sculpey) and Fimo mixture, which I then applied to the pasty. I put that in the oven for a few minutes while I mixed some red chalk pastel with a little bit of Liquid Fimo, for the filling. It didn't turn out QUITE as filling-like as I'd hoped but it looks good regardless!
And this is when I realized I had made the bite mark on the wrong side! CURSES!
