Today I am going to show you how to make perfect little meringues !
I can promise you this will be easier than doing real ones ! 😀
My mom recently send me some of her homemade ones and daaamn those were peeeeerfect !
So let’s start !
You will need:
- white and translucent clay
- colored clay
- and/or arcyl colors
If you don’t have translucent clay, thats fine ! I am going to show you different methods, and translucent is not used in one.
When you’re using trans and white clay mix the two together real good.
Then roll it into a ball ! You can start forming the meringue shape now !
Start by making one side a bit thinner ! So you will get a cone.
Then bend the cone slightly while still making the ends thinner.
Push down the sides again, if you feel like its to tall. Meringues always look kind of cute and round!
This is my finished “cone”, in this method we’re going to color it after baking !
Method 2 : mix white, trans and colored clay ! And then repeat !
Tadaaa meringue !
Method 3 : White, trans and then add bits of colors to the little ball. Mix the colors in, but only a bit! And then repeat the steps above!
Then you can add little eye pins if you wish to.
Bake the meringues!
Now lets go back to method 1 :
Choose some colors!
I mixed my colors with white to make it more pastel-y
I mixed the paint with a lot of water to get a smooth finish.
Then I painted the meringue.
Let it dry !
This is how the others look after baking!
And this is the one with method 3!
Then I cleaned dust off with my knife.
I added a phone strap !
You can add varnish if you want to ! I recommend it for method one !
The finished product !
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial ! I know I did 😛
These look super cute on your phone.
Let me know if you tried it out.
P.S. my cat scratched me
