Tips & Tricks #4: Texturing polymer clay(Baked Goods)

Hello! This weeks post will be about texturing polymer clay when making baked goods, such as cookies,cakes,cupcakes,and so on.

There are many tools you can find on hand to texture your polymer clay, with this guide i hope it can help you in your clay journey!

Notes: I am not a prorffessinal clay crafter. I am only sharing what i do as a clay crafter. This post does not mean all crafters use this style or technique.

The tools i’ll be talking about in this blog post:

  • Tooth Pick
  • Blunt Needle Tool ( Its a nail art tool thats pointy like a needle, but the tip is blunt).
  • Needle Tool or just a sewing needle
  • Craft Knife (The one that has a pointy tip, X-Acto is a popular brand)
  • Toothbrush (get a brand new one from a dollar store, use it for crafting purposes only)
  • Tin Foil Ball
  • Sand Paper

 

Each tool can do different types of textures, from a crumbly cookie,a fluffy cake texture and so on. No tool can only do 1 type of texture, it depends on the way you use the tool to create texture.
