larger strawberry canes by Snowfern larger strawberry canes by Snowfern
in preparation for TDA, made some strawberry canes. man, that's a lot of clay for so few slices of strawberries :(

if you're looking for the tutorial link i used for these canes, directions to the link can be found on my blog:

[link]

made some modifications myself. read it and weep.

not for the faint-hearted.

Wow, these looks great! I tried to make strawberries on a few occasions and always failed...rather miserably at that. lol
Well done! :D

The first two failed attempts you made sort of look like dried strawberry bits that people put on cereal, so even if they didn't look like fresh strawberries, they could have another use :)

thank you for the suggestion! but that would mean i have to make mini cornflakes ; ; can you imagine how tiny those would have to be? :O!

:lmao: good point :)

You could make mini cheerios by winding a small clay rope around the pointed part of a toothpick, but even that would be nuts...especially considering the texturing you would need to do ^^;

You're the artist, you have whining privileges :)

You had mentioned that they were a bit more brittle, so if that is true you could even break them into smaller bits for the cereal toppings.

If you could achieve the same brittleness with a large piece of golden-semi translucent clay that has been textured, highlighted and a faux sheen added, made to look like a giant cornflake, then just maybe, mini cornflakes would be a possibility -brain going in circles-

I think you were more focused on the result you wanted to get from the clay, rather than the possibilities opened by the learning process, no worries :)

kewl. Luv this. And will u ever make a tutorial on this? just wondering ^^

Snowfern Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2009
i doubt i will because the original tutorial i followed (there's directions to it on my blog) is very very good, all i did was tweak it a little (instructions -also- on my blog).

hey you owe me an email with your links ;)

:iconpolymerclayfoodtutor:
tee hee yesh. I do owe you. I am trying to do it with a whole bunch of deviantartists.. so yah. ^^ xD

Snowfern Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2009
nope. those are a 'secret' ;) they're really hard to make and i have to make my own special tools too, so i won't ever make a tutorial for it. tutorials should be for beginners, i feel, and there are so many good ones out there i don't feel a need to re-invent the wheel.
