Doll Size Fried Eggs

This week I decided to expand on the breakfast theme for the dolls and make some fried eggs. This is another really fun and easy project to make with clay.

For the clay you will need-

a yellow “yolk” color, I am using Premo in Cadmium Yellow, Fimo Golden Yellow is also a good choice and I am certain that Sculpey has a similar color.

a white mixture of equal parts white and translucent clay The brand of these clays really doesn't matter just pick a good white white. (this is a clay combination I use so much that I often will purchase blocks of the two colors on sale and premix them together so I can get right to work on making clay foods)

Again this week we are working on a ceramic tile because we are going to coat our eggs with Gallery Glass paint in the end.

For the white portion of the eggs you will need balls of clay that are about 5/8” in diameter. You will them smoosh these balls out to irregular shapes. Remember eggs that you cook in a skillet aren't perfectly round, they are usually far from it in fact. So have fun and smash that clay down until it is about 1 ¼” across. Do this right on the tile you are going to bake on and don't put them too close together.

Now using the yellow clay form small balls about 3/8' in diameter then gently flatten until they are about ½” in diameter. Place one of these on each egg white.

Now bake the eggs at 230° F for about 10-15 minutes and allow to cool.

Once the clay and the tile have all cooled down you can add the coat of clear Gallery Glass. I also added just a bit of Amber in small areas at the very edge of the pool of clear. This will look like those crispy bits at the edges of the eggs.

Allow this to dry thoroughly!! it takes a while and it will be best to let these set at least overnight.
