Polymer Clay 101: Cherry Cheesecake

It's finally time for another tutorial!! This time I am going to show you how to make cherry cheesecake. Once you make the cheesecake you can make dangle earrings, studs and charms. Let's get started!

As well they are listed in my etsy shop for $7.50, check them out:

You will need:
  • White Clay
  • Ecru Clay
  • Brown Clay
  • Red Clay
  • TLS
  • Red Chalk Pastel
  • Exacto knife
  • Sharp pointy tool
  • Wax paper
  • Eye pins
 First take your white clay.
Form it into a ball and then squish it flat. Work with it until it is circular and even.
Take your brown and ecru clay.
Mix some ecru clay with some brown clay.
Flatten your ball of clay.
Wrap the brown clay around your filling and roll it so the clay sticks together. Use your exacto knife to cut off the excess and roll again.
Roll out the excess and place it on top of the crust and push to secure.
Slightly cut your pie into eight pieces and push eight eyepins into the middle of those pieces. Put in your freezer to help the clay cool.
Cut up your pies after allowing them to cool.
Use a sharp tool to indent the crust and texture the crust.
And a toothbrush to texture the filling.
Take your red clay and form tiny balls. Place three on each slice.
Squirt some TLS into a container and mix in red chalk pastel. Pour into onto your slices with a toothpick, and bake!
Glaze your slices and superglue your eyepins in to secure them. Attach earrings if you wish.

Thanks so much for reading my blog!!!
