What could be cuter than a tiny little sandwich clay….with a face? I am absolutely in love with this new addition to my clay family! I photographed it all aswell, to show you lovely lot every step of how to make him! yay 😉
Hey there lovely people!
I decided to give you another cheeky clay tutorial, and this one is such a cutie!
With some little tomatoey and lettucey layers, this charm is so easy to make, so I hope you give it a go!
You Will Need…
- Polymer clay (oven bake clay) in beige, green, red, black
- Clay tool or scraper foil tool!
- Metal loops
- Brown pastels
- Fimo Gloss varnish
- Texturing tool/toothbush
How to make it…
Firstly, to make this little guy, split a bit of beige clay into two parts.
Roll it into a ball and shape into a thick triangle.
Then roughly squash a bit of green clay flat (messy is fine, it’s only lettuce!)
Flatten the ‘lettuce’ on to one of the beige triangles, making sure some of it hangs over the edge slightly.
Now roll out a few tiny dots of red clay (tomatoes!) and squash them flat.
Then add the tomatoes on top of the lettuce layer. 🙂
And next you can put the final bread layer (the other beige triangle) on top!
I pressed a bit on the top so it all flattened a bit. You can also gently and carefully shape the bread a bit! ❤
The cute bit – time to add the eyes!
Roll out two teeny pieces of black clay and add them using a finger or tool to the top bread layer!
You can’t forget the teeeny mouth! Roll a long, thin piece of black clay and cut off the length you want. EVER so gently apply pressure to both ends of the strip between two fingers to make a smile shape. 😉
Then use the end of a tool, pencil or toothbrush head to add texture to the bread. Gently pat the tool all over to get tiny marks and bumps.
And don’t forget to add a tiny metal loop!
Pop him in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes (depending on the size) at 100 degrees!
Whilst it cooks, grab some brown and beige pastels and use a scraper tool or sharp tool to scrape the side, so dust falls off on to a piece of paper.
Then, use a paintbrush (preferably not clogged up with glue :P) to mix it up on the paper and make sure the brush gets a lot on it!
Once out of the oven-let it cool for ten minutes or so. ❤
Now dab on the pastel with the paintbrush, applying the most on to the edges (crust)!
The darker the pastel mixture, the darker it will apply.
Make it as messy as you wish! 🙂
(Add Fimo Gloss varnish if you wish to keep it protected more, but honestly, it may not turn out great with pastels on it, but feel free to experiment!)
That’s it for your new little sandwich buddy!
He was super easy to make, and quite effective-hope you enjoyed! 😉
I hope you lovely people are having a greeat day today, and happy weekend! Yay! Hope you have a go at this, let me know if you liked it! ❤
Happy Friday hugs!
