We'll start by making the raspberries. Start by taking a toothpick and apply white glue to the end. Dip the tip end into some micro beads. You will need to wait for several minutes afterward to allow the white glue to dry. Then continue adding more beads to create the exact shape that you want.
Next we'll make the raspberry mold. Start by taking a small amount of white and blue silicone putty clay. Mix well.
