Aren’t these little pies so cute?? I love tiny food. I met a wonderful clay artist on Etsy who was nice enough to share her “baking” skills with clay and silicone molds. She made these sweet little pies and shows us how she did it in this wonderful tutorial.
Please visit her lovely shop to see more tiny food creations!
The first thing I do for this pumpkin pie is I get my clay ready. I’m going to use brown for the shell, it is a mix of beige sculpey, translucent sculpey, and chocolate fimo. For the pumpkin pie filling I’m using sweet potato sculpey.
Take a good sized ball of the brown and roll it so that there are not any air bubbles and so it is smooth. Then press it into the mold.
Start by pressing the outer edges in first and squeeze it all the way to the bottom of the mold. Then press the center out to the edges until it is smooth.
Take the pie crust out of the freezer and as fast as you can press the sweet potato color into the crust while it is still hard. As the clay warms it will distort when pressed on. It is important to do this step as fast as possible
An optional step is to color the top of the clay with pastel for an oven browned look.
This method is easy to apply to other pie types, just change the color of the filling. For the cherry pie shown I mixed micro marbles in to the clay with the TLS
