A fortune cookie told me today that I'd be picking the wonderfully cute Fortune Cookie Charm Tutorial by *tedsie as today's DD. No, really - it's true!

Fortune Cookie Charm Tutorial

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.

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".

I was wondering, you don't need to put sculpley in oven? I know you have too with "fimo" i'm not quite sure ><
splashysden's avatar
sculpey is polymer clay, so yes it goes in the oven. ^^ i just bought some
ErizuStrawberries's avatar
Okay, thank you ! But, did I have to put plastic glove when I sculpt this XD?
splashysden's avatar
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!
