Tutorial : Mickey mouse cream puff

Hey guys !

Another Mickey mouse themed tutorial today !
If you read my first tutorial that is the mickey mouse donut, you’ll know that I got these ideas from Strapya world.

Strapya Mickey mouse cream puff charm

Let’s get started !

Materials

Materials

  • Butterscotch clay (yellow-ish clay)
  • White clay
  • Some type of “whipped cream” (clay, deco, or some kind of white sealant)
  • Brown pastel
  • Liquid sculpey ( sculpey is best because fimo deco will give a transparent-ish finish- which is not what I want)
As you can see, I mixed the butterscotch colour with white to make it lighter. This is the bun of the cream puff.
Making the shape
  • Make one ball + 2 smaller ones for the ears.
  • Split the larger one into two
  • Make one half (of the larger ball) into a bun shape. Which is basically like a dome.
You’ll see that in the third image, I made the ears level with the dome shaped clay. You don’t actually want this. When I put the ‘cream’ into the clay, and sandwiched the two pieces together, I found that the ears were not big enough…. this is a really bad explanation, you’ll see what I mean in the end.
Making icing
  • You see the bun shape ? Also, notice how the other half is significantly thinner. We don’t want it to be the same thickness as the dome.
  • Mix the liquid sculpey with brown pastel
Adding icing
  • Add the icing onto the bun. Make sure when you add it, you give the ‘chocolate’ a ‘drizzled’ effect. The sculpey is thick enough to hold it’s shape, so don’t worry too much about it.
  • Bake.
  • You’ll see than the sculpey baked matte. This is what we want because it looks like real chocolate this way. Fimo deco gel is quite light in texture, and will not hold its shape. Also, it finishes quite transparent.
I actually just wanted to leave it like this…. it looked quite nice haha
Making and adding cream
  • Now is the time to add your ‘cream’
  • I am not using liquid clay + white clay. As you can see, it’s a type of tile filler. “Selley’s No more gaps”.
  • You only need a small amount. To make it thicker, and hold it’s shape, mix with some type of flour. I usually just use tapioca (which is like corn/potato starch)
  • Add onto the bottom half of the bun
Completed
  • Sandwich the top and bottom together and there!
  • As you can see, the ears are not actually touching the surface… this is what I meant when  I said to make the ears bigger. If you have a tiny piping tool, pipe the cream in. This way , it’ll have more detail.
Hope you like ! The next one is coming soon

    grear tutorial, thanks c:

    not sure if it’s your lighting, but in the last photo the icing looks almost black!
    would adding less pastel make it a lighter colour?
