Monthly Food Challenge

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 3, 2014, 11:05 AM
Monthly Food Challenge
A three month premium membership will be awarded to one of the semi-sweeties members that participate in the challenge.

We have been running these challenges for three years now, we have to keep them challenging! So this time we’re shaking things a little: instead of randomly picking a winner from the participant pool, we’re going to pick the entry that makes the most creative use of the theme. Even if your crafting skills aren’t the best, but you had a great idea and were able to transmit it, you have a chance to win the 3 months subscription!

Theme of the month: Berries

For those of us in the northern hemisphere summer is almost here, the fruits are ripping all around! And if you’re in the southern hemisphere, you probably miss the colorful look of a meadow full of berries, so we hope this challenge will please everyone ;)

This month we’re asking you to craft something made out of berries, what kind of berries is entirely up to you. Are you a fan of strawberries? Blueberries? Blackberries? Raspberries? Cranberries? You only have two limitations: it has to be handmade out of clay and it must contain berries! Any edible fruit (real or fictitious) that includes “berry” is eligible.

**If any of these rules are ignored, you will be disqualified from winning the prize**
  • Participants have to be members of semi-sweeties
  • Submissions must be entirely made by you (no bought canes or molds).
  • Only new work is accepted, submitted to DA between June 1st and 30th.
  • Items must be primarily made of clay (polymer clay, cold porcelain, air dry clay, etc - but NO silicon or resin).
  • If a tutorial was used, the source must be credited.
  • You must write somewhere in the artist comment box that this is an entry for #semi-sweeties' monthly challenge + add a link to this journal.
  • Submit entries into the "Monthly Food Challenge" folder.

The challenge closes on June 30th and the 3 month sub winner will awarded to one semi-sweeties member that in our opinion, made the most creative use of the team.

Hi, I posted this question in the rules journal, but I figured I'd ask it here, too, since no response has been given yet: 

Would things made out of salt dough be accepted here? It is a type of homemade "clay" similar to air drying clay. You can bake it in an oven to speed up the drying process, too, if you don't wanna wait for it to air dry.

Let me know! :)

:iconsemi-sweeties: Sorry it took me forever to answer, I'm kind of taking care of business on my own now and I am still getting familiar with everything...and never really thought about checking if people left messages...because I was not the one taking care of those... So, sorry for the late answer.

As a rule, we're a polymer clay group and sincerely, if we added any more kind of clays we would be a little overwhelmed with work here. When I say "we" I mean "I" as of late, lol.
I am sorry, but I will have to say: no, other types of clay are not accepted. Though I thought those cookies you make with salt dough were pretty cool. :)
I hope you understand. Keep up the great work. :hug:

Ah, okay. I just thought I'd ask because in the more comprehensive and detailed rule section, it said "We accept food made out of any kind of clay", but I didn't want to just submit without at least trying to check if it was okay first, since salt dough kinda isn't conventional clay. :) Thanks for getting back to me though!

Oh...I will have to check the rules better then (I did not write them and it's been forever since I last read them), but not until the holidays are passed.
Happy Holidays by the way! :)
