awww. Hmm I pressed the thin piece of green clay onto the surface pretty hard and then i also texture it kinda hard with the foil, then scrape it off wit hthe knife. Don't care too much about how each piece looks cause it's random. Just make different sizes. Also, make sure the clay is THIN. I hope it helps >.< good luck!!

I love your tips! For a bloody beginner like me they're invaluable <3 (Although my stuff is a much larger scale, I make props for BJDs and they're more like 1/3 than 1/12. Oh well, beginner friendly, huh?)

Yup! All my tutorials should work for any size =]. Making props for BJD's is so cool!

What type of clay do you use? I've tried the whole mini cakes and stuff but the clay i had was so hard to work! It would take me forever just to roll it out flat. I used Fimo clay stuff is horrible

Your clay might have dried out. I use polymer clay and fimo is one of the brands I use. I also use Premo.

It's not dried out. It's like that when I get it out and its so hard to make it manage-able. The only thing i could really make was a cake
