Tutorial: Orange Sections
Let's learn the techniques used for making Peeled oranges with peel. Hanna Lindroth of Mini Chef will walk you through step-by-step instructions on how you can make your own peeled oranges.

► Chalk Pastels: White
- Brush , Needle or
A Needle-Tool, Razor Blade, Rolling Pin or Pasta Machine, and Toothpicks
We will start making the peeled orange section. To get the color of the orange fruit, mix equal amounts of yellow and translucent clay as shown in my picture. Then add a little less then 1:4 of white clay and a tiny piece of orange clay to the mix.
You don't need much clay, to give you an idea of how much my yellow clay in this picture is approximately 1,5 cm (just over ½") in each side and the width is about 0,7 cm (¼").
Mix the clay well, so the color is even.
Now roll the clay into a even snake approximately 4mm (just over 1/8") in diameter. Then measure up and cut of a section of 6mm (¼") from the snake.
