  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Tan for the buns, reddish brown for the burger, purple for onions, green for lettuce, yellow for cheese, and red for tomatoes.

    Step 2

    Separate identically sized red/brown spheres for the amount of burgers you want. I chose two.

    Step 3

    Flatten the circles but keep them pretty thick and in a circle shape.

    Step 4

    Use the needle tool to make texture on the side of the burger by poking holes. Sorry the picture is so blurry!

    Step 5

    This is what it should look like.

    Step 6

    Shape the tan clay so half of it has a rounder top and cut it in half.

    Step 7

    Flatten them and make sure they're the same size as the burgers.

    Step 8

    Flatten the yellow for the cheese.

    Step 9

    Place the burger on top of it and use the knife to cut a square around it.

    Step 10

    Step 11

    Take off the excess and roll the extra edges off of the side so it looks like the cheese is slightly melted.

    Step 12

    Flatten the green for the lettuce.

    Step 13

    Use the dotting tool to make circles so it looks like wavy lettuce.

    Step 14

    Cut it into pieces.

    Step 15

    Place the lettuce on one patty.

    Step 16

    Take the purple and cut it into four different parts. Make them into spheres.

    Step 17

    Flatten the spheres but try to keep the edges thicker so they show when placed on the burger.

    Step 18

    Do the same for the tomatoes.

    Step 19

    Place all of the toppings on the burger. Remember the inside won't show just the edges, so it doesn't matter if the middle is messy; make sure the visible parts are how you want them to look.

    Step 20

    Put everything together.

    Step 21

    Use brown chalk to color the buns and black chalk to color the burger so it looks grilled and more realistic.

    Step 22

    Remember, make your burger how you want it! Be creative(:
