Cute sweets made with clay, twist marshmallow recipes
The characteristic of lightweight clay is anything lighter. It hardens with natural drying, so even beginners can handle it, it is recommended for making accessories.
However, since there is no strength, please note that it may be damaged if it gets too strongly even after curing.
Because it is difficult to color dark colors on lightweight clay, it is suitable for making candy goods and works (fake sweets) such as macaroons and marshmallows, which are suitable for light pastel colors.
Also, because it does not have water resistance, especially when it is finished as an accessory work, it is necessary to coat with a water resistant or water repellent varnish. Without this coating, color may fall when wet in the rain, clay may melt.
Resin clay, as opposed to lightweight clay, is very heavy. In addition, the possibility of shrinking when dried and the color becomes darker, so it is necessary to make it larger than desired size and make the color thinner, with the view of the completed image after drying. It is suitable for making fake sweets in general, but due to its heavy nature, it is not suitable for processing into large pierced earrings or earrings.
By the way, paper clay is a clay made of paper as the name suggests. It is made by adding glue etc. to finely cut paper. Paper clay is not suitable for long-term preservation even when it is unopened, it will dry out over time. Also, although it is possible to color but color development is not so good, it is more suitable for handicrafts etc. with hobbies rather than for making accessories.
There are many fake sweets using lightweight clay.
For example, a donut. Color with acrylic paint and paint varnish for finish, it looks like a donut like a chocolate cliff. If you decorate with cream parts on it, it looks more delicious.
It is particularly suitable for pale color sweets such as macaroons. Make a macaroon by pasting lightweight clay into pastel colors, and then attach it with a glue to a ballpoint pen wrapped with a ribbon, it becomes a lovely macaron pen.
