Today we are going to make earring sets made in a food clay art style. 

Food clay art is one of the most popular clay modeling styles, since using such an universal and easy to use material as a polymer clay gives you a great freedom to create anything that looks so edible!! And that is what we are going to make now. We will need the following tools and materials:

  • white, pink, red and brown Cernit clay
  • blade or a paper knife
  • Sculpey clay softener (gel);
  • fruit clay canes ( made separately, more tutorials later);
  • Roller or a pasta machine;
  • 4 cm round cutter;
  • needle and toothpicks;
  • crepe paper;
  • eye pins, ear hook wire, round nose pliers;
  • polymer clay varnish.

For this lesson wie are using fruit canes that I had done earlier, but have not made a tutorial yet, so stay in touch for updates of this lesson.
So to start with soften clay of our main colors and roll it into 5 mm thick pieces. Using a cutter, make workpieces sergi pirojnoye 02

stack them together and cut into 8 equal pieces, just like we would cut an ordinary cake

insert a toothpick into the rounded part and using another toothpick scarify the surface to give our details the structure of a real bisquit cake

To prepare the cream, use a clay thinner: warm up the clay in your hands until it reaches maximum of elasticity, add a few drops of a liquid clay and mix with your hands. Your clay should look like a chewing gumsergi pirojnoye 07

Place a clay into a jar and add a luquid clay, mix until reaches the concictency of a toothpaste

Apply "cream" to the top and round edge of a detail, using a toothick pull the clay on the other edges to create drips. You can alsщ use a syringe to apply this soft clay, just make cuts on it's nose like on a cooking bag

As you can see from photo, I've made clay cream with different colors. If you have a leftover clay left, you can store it in a sealed container for 6 months. Place elements in oven for baking

Once the baking isover, apply a thin layer of clay varnish, avoiding the bicquit sides. Using a round nose pliers make a loop and attach fish-hook ear wire
