She kindly invited me to do a guest entry, and this is what I did :) find more FTF and tutorials in her gallery and blog.

This is really great, I have never considered baking clay and then cutting/shaping it but this method looks incredible, I'll definitely give it a try!
Talty's avatar
You can get a lot of interesting effects if you bake the clay first, it's a good resource to keep in mind :) I hope it works for you too!

I've seen how the cake texturing is done (from you ^_^) and I still can't believe how good and realistic it looks every time!
