The Cake is a Lie and Lemon Grenade Earrings by Talty The Cake is a Lie and Lemon Grenade Earrings by Talty

| Etsy | Storenvy | Custom Commissions | Facebook | YouTube | Polymer Clay Gallery |



This was an amazing commission :wow: I loved the idea from the minute I read it. It was really fun to do, complicated due to the small size and lots of details... but really fun :D just the kind of thing I love to do. These earrings are a combo of my citric and cake dangling earrings, which can be found in my Etsy and Storenvy (links above).

These are Portal Cakes with Lemon Grenades and some regular lemon halves. I copied the Portal Cake from the outside, and since it's supposed to be a Black Forest Cake I added some tiny cherries to the filling. Making the chocolate shavings on the right scale and texturing something so small was a challenge.

The Lemon Grenade was tricky because the pieces needed to be precise and straight to look realistic, otherwise they end up looking too cartoonish. I made my best to look the clay look like rusty metal.

I love how polymer clay can be manipulated to look like a translucent cherry, creamy frosting, delicate chocolate shaves, crumbly cake, though metal, juicy pulp, and citric peel... it's simply magic T_T  I only used a bit of paint for the metal effect, the rest is all polymer clay.

Technical stuff: All handmade by me with polymer clay, no molds, bought pieces or premades were used, 100% me :D the cake was made using the techniques explained in my many cake tutorials (which can be found in my DA and YouTube). Glaze and the tiniest bit of acrylic paints were also used.

How you manage to make such perfect textures and get so detailed on such tiny little things is beyond me!! I mean, dang! Those lemons look like if you squeezed them, citrus juice would come squirting out! :XD:

My brother loves Portal and Portal 2. You have to be psychic to be this good, why don't you forward this to him? You can find his email in my brain. Somewhere.
