Fortune Cookie Charm Tutorial by tedsie Fortune Cookie Charm Tutorial by tedsie
Huge file.
I said I wasn't going to do tutorials, but people had so many questions that a bit ago I came up with my Clay FAQ. Since the semester ended I've had more questions and have seen more people applying their skills learned from my information, other artists' information, as well as their own experiements in making clay charms and figurines. One thing that stuck out to me was making fortune cookie charms strikingly similar to my own. Imitation is quite flattering, but none of them were doing it properly.
Seeing how I had actual time now to do such a thing, I figured a proper tutorial was in order.

Enjoy.
Spread the word that this is here. ^_^

I'll take suggestions for other tutorials, as I rather enjoyed doing this one.

Please ignore that I misspelled "Michael's" and "Squirrel".

It might make it look better, but it's not necessary. Plus I have a fingerprint issue with my charms.

A little extra tip - I prefer using a matte glaze for the cookie as it looks more realistic, and still using dots of shiny sculpy glaze for the eyes. I just bought spray-on acrylic matte glaze that works great. it doesn't peel or crack or anything!

Thank you I've been wondering how to perfect that Fortune cookie shape :3

I have a quick Question though... In one of your charm "meneus" there is a dark raspberry fortune cookie charm. I simply love they color, and was wondering, how did you get it so glassy looking and the color?I know you probably use some translecent clay mixed in with the color for the glass look, but is there any secret to it? sorry if I confused you, ^^
