Today I am going to show you how to create a quite simple miniature food tray, which you could either use in a dollhouse or as a fridge magnet.
You will need:
- Clay in ‘tan’, ‘white’, ‘silver’ (optional), ‘pink’ and ‘chocolate’
- Fimo Liquid or TLS
- Some tools
First you need to warm up and then roll out the silver clay!
This will be our baking tray!
Yes I am using a water bottle to roll the clay out.
Now cut out a rectangle.
Then use the left over clay to cut out thin stripes. Those will be our tray border.
Use another stripe and a ball tool to make a spoon!
Put everything aside and begin to mix a tan and brown color to get a woodlike appearance.
Roll it out and cut another rectangle. You can make it bigger than the other one if you want to.
When you’re ready put it aside. Now we can start to make the bowl.
I have made myself a bowl mold. If you don’t know how to make a bowl here’s a Bowl Tutorial that I find helpful. If you wan’t to know how I made the mold, let me know in the comments.
Basically, what I do here is: I fill the mold with clay, cut off the excess and then use a ball tool to make a dent. Then I cut off excess clay again.
Put it to the side!
Now we have to make the cookies!
Take your tan colored clay and roll it out!
I use a tiny heart stencil to cut out hearts, but you can also do it free hand.
After you’ve cut out the hearts, it is time to make the glaze that goes on the cookies!
Mix pink clay (or whatever color you prefer) and Liquid Fimo or TLS!
I used a flat tool to mix as I find it a lot easier this way!
Now you can start putting the cookies onto the tray!
I don’t think you can see it really well on the pictures, but I put some glaze on each cookie!
As you can see I left 3 cookies outside of which 2 have been glazed and one is still naked.
Pick up the tray and put it onto the other rectangle. Don’t forget to add some TLS as it workes as a glue between the two layers!
Now it’s time to put the other cookies onto the tray. Use Liquid or TLS again to ‘glue’ it together.
As you can see I also added some glaze/frosting to the bowl and to the spoon.
Leave the bowl in the mold until after baking.
If you didn’t use a mold it is a good idea to glue the bowl onto the clay without frosting and then bake it for a few minutes. Let is cool down and add the frosting. This way you won’t ruin your bowls form. Then bake it for the missing time.
After baking you can start to clean it!
Use a small knife to go around the bowls edges if they’re wobbly in any way.
Then use super glue to glue it onto the tray!
Let it dry! Then turn it around to glue magnets on the back if you want to.
And this is the finished product!
I hope you try out this tutorial or at least found it interesting!
