Christmas Crunch

clay, craft

Hey there, Cutie!

So it begins again, Christmas season is well into full swing again and I’ve been crafting my little booty off making gifts for family & friends, and can I say I’ve fallen in love with some little pastries I’ve made for someone! (Gotta keep the recipient a secret!)

They’re a little jam and pastry pie that we’ve had a family member make for us a few times and it’s so yummy! They always look good and taste like… like delicious sugar! They are jam, after all!

Pasty Pie 01

Pastry Pie!

I used bottle caps for the little tin they rest in, aluminium foil to bulk out the inside, layer of textured clay, painted one blueberry purple & one raspberry red, baked them once, added the criss cross, re-baked them, (YES! You can bake acrylic paint! This is honestly the most durable paint ever!!), then painted the criss cross and added my lovely high shiny gloss to the jam below 🙂

Not too hard, the most fiddly part is getting the pastry lines to overlap each other, especially on such a tiny scale. They’re only the size of a bottle cap, after all 😛
