So this tutorial is actually quite old. I made this Melon pan charm back when I was making the Strapaya Mickey Mouse charms..
I didn’t upload this one because I thought it was ugly and that I made it quite poorly.. ohoho
Anyway, someone requested it , so I’ll be posting it today ^^
I was actually going to remake it but I start my “Study Week” so I’m just going to use old images. I may or may not update this post in the future with better quality images and probably a better outcome..
So here we go !
- Chalk Pastels
- Light yellow clay
- Some kind of tool with a flat edge. You can use the back of a razor blade for this (be careful though), or a ruler etc,,
- So for this you just need three circles.
- Two small equal sized ones for the ears
- One larger one for the main
- Make sure they’re dome shapes and not flat circles
- For the pattern, lightly use your tool and create indents on the clay.
- You can go for “squares” or “diamonds”
- Make sure the indents go all the way to the bottom edge, not just the top parts where it’s visible. Also, try to keep everything even
- Do the same pattern for the ears
- And arrange the clay. You can use some TLS to make sure the ears stick on, or just squish them together. However, make sure it doesn’t lose its pattern
- Now for pastels. Excuse how ugly and dirty mine are…
- You’re going to need a range of browns, oranges and yellows. You don’t need all the colours shown in the picture, those are just the range of pastels I usually use for shading things like pastries and bread
- Yellow: Base colour to make the bread seem “golden”
- Oranges: Goes on top of the yellow except you leave some visible so that the clay looks like it’s been browned and golden.
- Browns: Goes on the top most “exposed” parts of the clay. This is to make it seem like it burned a bit.
- Putting the base colour yellow all over the ‘bread’
- Some orange over the whole bread
- Mix of browns and oranges in the “lines” of the bread
- Add an eyepin at this point if you want to + Bake
I tend to avoid glazing things like breads because they aren’t shiny in real life. Also, remember to shade the base.
And that’s it :D
Pretty simply right ?
The details are basically down to the shading from the pastels. ^^
Hope you liked this one ! Sorry for the bad quality,,
Thanks for reading !
