Today I am going to show you how to create teeny tiny macarons.
It is rather easy. Well at least easier than you’d think.

You will need any kind of clay you prefer. I recommend soft clay (fimo).
Choose the colours you like aaaaaaaand…..

…..LETS START….

Start by making tiny balls. The size depends on what you believe you can do. If you’re insecure start with bigger ones. Just make sure the balls are kind of even ;).

Then you’ve to flatten them out. Again that depends on your liking. I prefer flat ones 😀

I have already started ^-^

A tip : use something to put them on, so you can maneuver around , and your head is not glued to the table. Better for your back/neck. And eyes, if your lighting sucks.

On to the next step. Take a needle and pick into the bottom. Make little holes, like the air-holes that appear on real macarons.

This is what it will look like. Don’t worry if they’re not perfect. First of all , the real ones are also one of a kind, and secondly, most people won’t be able to see them that well anyways 😛 .

Next you’ll take your filling colour, mine will be chocolate so fimo-chocolate is my choice.

Again, start by making small balls and flatten them out. Try to make the size fit your macaron. This is a bit difficult, you have to try a lot more, since the ball for the filling is so much smaller.

If you want to check the size, you can pick it up with a knife, or similar thing.

(Excuse the lighting, it was was very cloudy day when I shot this)

Next you can put down the filling, and pick up the macaron half.

Put it on you finger !

Now, there seem to be some lost pictures, but basically, pick up the filling again and place it on to the macaron-half. Then carefully pick up another half and place that on the other half.

There might be no pictures of this, as it can be quite ‘small work’. I didn’t have a free hand to take pictures.

But this is how the end result should look !

The little cylinders in the back are for my next project. You can already find some pictures on my instagram, a link is in the down-bar ! ( click on the little triangle on the bottom of the page)

But the tutorial for this will be up next week !

So if you want to join me with the tutorial next week you can start by recreating these little macarons !

Have fun !
