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!

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.
