I've been really curious about this tecnique shared by Shacchan - see this journal for the instructions - and finally today I've managed to give it a try :boogie:
It was fun, althought a little messy. I just need to try some more to find the perfect dosages!

Step 1
I mixed some light brown clay with about an half of water and an half of Fimo liquid, until I got a creamy thing (as Shacchan explained, it should look like a glaze). Then, I added the baking powder to the clay, proportion as shown, and mixed them:


Step 2
I made a baking tin with an aluminium foil (I didn't have anything to wrap the aluminium around, that's why it looks so weird!:laughing: ) and poured the clay in it (well, I poured it all over my worktop too! :D ). I baked for about 10 minutes.


Step 3
This is what the clay looks like, after it's baked. Gotta admit it looks anything but good :D


Step 4
The big moment! Seems like it worked - but I'm thinking of using a little more powder next time, to get a bigger texture.


Step 5
I painted the slice with acrilyc paints for a more 3d look. Oh yes I desperately need to improve my painting skills!


Done!
Thanks again to Shacchan for the super-useful tips! Can't wait to try this out again :giggle:

Thank you and you're very welcome! :giggle:
While I can't take credit for the idea, this has to be my favourite clay-related tecnique so far. You can achieve wonderful results, and it's really fun to experiment with it - it's such a versatile tecnique!

Mmh, I *think* you could try to do it with only water and polymer clay. I've never tried to make it this way, tho, so I'm not really sure this will work - even the original tutorial (here : [link]) use liquid clay in the mix.. :confused:
Let me know :giggle:

I just can't seem to get it right. It just crumbles into bits when I take it out of the oven. Should it do that or should it be more rubber like?

Mmh, maybe you used too much baking powder? Something like this happened to me once, and it was because of that. Actually, the clay started to leaven before I started baking it :laughing:
Anyway, when I guess the right dosage, after baking the outside of the clay is smooth and somewhat shiny, while the inner part is very "light" and kind of crumbly. Hope this helps! :)

I've added to much baking powder and after 1 minute of baking it already flowed from my aluminium foil :giggle:. Now it looks like a sponge, not like the cake it was supposed to be. :laughing: Next time - less baking powder. :XD:

By the way - thanks for subbmiting this tutorial... I would never ever get the idea of making this that way. And - this toast looks so delicious. :iconirapeitplz:

You mean the bread slice? I painted it with acrilyc paints. I've been using acrilyc paints more and more, lately - I think they allows to experiment a little more than chalks and you can get bolder shades! :giggle:

Oh my..!! I knew such a realistic bread can't be made with a needle. And in spite of all my headbangs the only thing I could make up is filling raw clay with air using a syringe - does it make sense?? But I never tried this cuz i think it won't work ;D However, THIS must be tried out! Thanks!!

You're welcome! I was so happy when I finally found out about this tecnique - needle texturing is, frankly, a royal pain and it really never looks "life like" :laughing:
Have fun trying this! :giggle:

But how do you mix ADC with baking powder? :giggle:
