Yesterday I whipped up a batch of polymer clay cherries. Then I mixed up some cherry sauce from fimo, clay from my cherry batch, and soft pastels.

It was my best cherries yet, so I went all out and made a bunch of desserts with it!

And I still had more cherries left. “Waste not want not” my mother always says, so I made another cherry cheesecake and cut it into individual slices.

To make a batch of cherries, mix an equal amount of red and translucent polymer clay. Then mix in just a speck each of black clay and purple clay (this creates a black cherry effect). Once it’s fully integrated, roll into a thin log and slice fairly equal segments to roll into small balls. Take a small chunk of that clay and mix in approximately twice the amount of liquid sculpey or fimo to make the syrup/sauce. Scrape in a bit of red soft pastel and mix well until you have the colour and consistency you desire. Remember it will bake up a bit darker. When you add the cherries to the dessert, for realism, smoosh them with a ball tool.

Now I really really really want a slice of the real thing!

I create miniature food sculpts (mainly dollhouse scale), out of my home, in the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. I live surrounded by the beauty of local orchards and rolling farmlands. When my kids leave for school, I set to work, often in my pajamas, with my clingy miniature schnauzer, Lenny, at my feet. I create only what interests or inspires me. My focus is on quality not quantity. While I often have only a few pieces available, they are very detailed as I continue to build my skill.
