First I mixed a very light tan, yellow and some white Sculpey.
Used my knife to cut it square.
I had a skinny balsa wood piece so I shaved it to a small square tip with my knife. I pressed all the squares. This took a few tries to get things straight.
Then I baked it and I made a mold of it. Love this EasyMold. It cures quickly and is great to work with.
Dusted them with reddish brown pastels. I used the brush and my fingers to get all the edges.
To make the batter I used some of the clay and mixed it with liquid polymer. I used my little painting spatula to work it until it was smooth.
Then I baked it and painted with a water soluble gloss varnish. Love how it's dripping over the edge!
For raspberries, I mixed red and transparent and rolled it out.
I balled up each one and pushed it on my toothpick and put it on the baking tile. (Or in this case a small porcelain plate.)
I have seen some amazing mini raspberries with all the details, but these will do for me. :)
The syrup gave me lots of trouble. I was trying to only use what I had on hand so my first two ideas failed. My second to last attempt was to mix a touch of brown paint with gloss varnish but because the varnish is white until it cures it was hard to see how much paint to add so I added too little.
After it dried I painted a little bit of slightly watered down brown paint in the the "syrup" areas, let it dry, and went back with the gloss varnish over it.
I like it!
I'm still debating putting coffee and orange juice in the cups, but I might want them for something else later. We shall see.
Black polymer clay for the waffle iron.
Matt board cut to size. I pressed in as shown. Pulled the piece up off the wax paper and trimmed it. The I smoothed out the edges.
I had this thin tape handy so after I painted the edges and top/bottom silver I wrapped the top and bottom with the tape to give a clean line on the edges. Then glued it all together.
Pretty good for $0!
So this is my new kitchen in my Kinfeld. To see more and how I did it visit my other blog.
