Make a cute salty pretzel that looks so real you wish you had some cheese to dip it in. Wear it as a necklace or turn it into a magnet.
What you need:
- Polymer clay: tan, translucent (I used Sculpey III)
- clay cuter blade
- chalk pastel: gold
- hobby blade
- Liquid Fimo
To begin we need to create the salt. Use some translucent clay and flatten it into a thin sheet. Pre-bake for 5 minutes at 265 F. After it has cooled cut it up into tiny cubes.
Roll out some tan clay into a long cane for the dough.
Twist the two ends together once and leavening tails on each end.
Fold the tails down to the middle of the loop to make your pretzel shape.
Dust your pretzel with some gold colored shaved chalk dust to give it a baked look.
Use a toothpick to add small dots of Liquid Fimo to the dough, then add a cube of salt on top. Add as much or little salt as you like.
Bake for 20 minutes at 265 F.
