Your tutorial on the little cakes is really great. Have you ever tried making them with liquid Sculpey that has been tinted with oil paint - I wonder if the baking soda would have the same effect. If not, I guess I'm going to have to try it. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
This morning I mixed some TLS, a few drop of Sculpey Diluent(now known as clay softener) and some yellow oil paint, and threw it in a little round foil cake pan. The yellow color is quite intense but it still had a cake-like texture - I'll have to throw in a little white next time. It looks like it didn't rise quite as much as yours, so perhaps I need to either thin the TLS more, or add more baking soda. I happen to have quite a bit of TLS right now, so I'm trying to skip the step of making the solvent-based polymer clay paint - and I can only stay in our basement so long before my small children are screaming for me. I also made a small pita bread by mixing some baking soda in a piece of Premo with a few drops of the diluent- when cut it has a pita-like look. But again, I need to play around with that.
You've definitely given me some "food" for thought here. I'd also like to hear about your oil paint test, if you have the time.
2-3 parts diluent (depends on how much oil paint)
8 parts baking soda.
oil paint for tinting
on that page for others to refer. From now on all the miniature cake will be a very realistic.
Please go ahead and post it on the list.
