Tutorial: Orange Sections
Continue tutorial with Hanna Lindroth
Now roll the orange clay into a ball on your sandpaper.
Use a tooth pick and make a small pit in the orange.
Use a needle or needle tool and make fine lines in the orange, like shown in my picture.
Mix a tiny piece of caramel brown clay to a larger piece of white clay, the proportions isn't exact.
Now take a tiny piece of this clay mix, about 1mm x 1mm (just over 1/8") and roll it to a tiny ball. Then put this ball in the pit on the orange and press it down a bit whit a tooth pick.
Bake your orange according to your clay manufacturers recommended time and temperature.
You now have your whole orange!
Now you can display you peeled orange section, your orange peels and oranges together or with other fruits if you like!
This is my completed orange.
