============


EDITED!! PLEASE DO NOT UNDERBAKE CLAY!! I'd been sorely misguided and read in various places to underbake for longer, but realised with experience that underbaked clay turns out brittle -_-" edited and updated the file.

Your eclairs are amazing (and yummy looking!)!
I have a question, though :)
how do you keep the clay so clean? D: I find there's always a piece of dust or something on mine after I finish :iconsadplz:

Awesome!
Also, I'm making a jewelry forum, because, for the most part, the forums I've seen for jewelry aren't all that riveting/used. If you're interested, it would be a good way to talk about techniques, ask questions and showcase what you've made.
If you're interested it's right here: [link]

Do you have to bake them twice?
Or can you do it all at once?

thanks for posting this tutorial, it is awesome and really helpful!
but (maybe it's a stupid question) how do you mix the different clay colors?
and how long do you bake the chocolate coated ecliars? do they burn more easily when they are already baked once before?
if the answers to my questions are too obvious, i'm sorry if i bothered you _
i don't know much about clay techniques but i'm very interested in learning more :)
