  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Flatten your olive-coloured clay into a thick slab. This colour can be achieved by mixing brown with leaf green clay.

    Step 2

    Roll your red clay into a thick cylinder.

    Step 3

    Place the red clay onto the olive one.

    Step 4

    Cover the red clay with the olive one like so.

    Step 5

    Start rolling the cylinder in the centre to the edges.

    Step 6

    (rolled the centre, edges still thick) Then you may roll the edges.

    Step 7

    Cut a small piece of the cane.

    Step 8

    Place the good looking side face-down, leaving the other side up. Close the side up by rubbing the sides upwards, closing in the side up.

    Step 9

    Use a needle tool to outline the filling, making it stand out from the olive clay. Then use a ball tool to flatten the filling, making the olive edges out stand.

    Step 10

    Ta-da~ Your finished little miniature fruit :P You can add it to your other clay projects such as miniature dishes or simply keep them in small glass jars. Have it your way ;)
