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
It was fun, althought a little messy. I just need to try some more to find the perfect dosages!
Step 1I 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 2I 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! ) and poured the clay in it (well, I poured it all over my worktop too! ). I baked for about 10 minutes.
Step 3This is what the clay looks like, after it's baked. Gotta admit it looks anything but good
Step 4The big moment! Seems like it worked - but I'm thinking of using a little more powder next time, to get a bigger texture.
Step 5I 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
