Miniature Pop corn tutorial

Last night Sweden won the Eurovision song contest! =) My family was ready with some pop corn for the big final. (We fell asleep before the end, but saw the rest today) And I had planned ahead and decided to make miniature pop corn too, I never thought of how time consuming it would be to make lots of them =) I made each by hand, maybe unnecessary, but this is how I made them:


 I made a few small "balls" out of white clay.

 Mixed two different shades of brown clay, and used soft pastel.

 Made a mark with the back of a needle, added some clay or soft pastel, or both =)

 Attached it to a bigger white "ball"

 Made another white and brow "lump"

 Add as much clay as you want, then you are done, and on to the next one =)

You can also, instead of using only round parts, use uneven parts to add at the side. I pulled out some uneven pieces with the back of a needle.

And attached that to the white "ball", with some brown in the middle.

After a loooooong while, this was what I had accomplish =)


I found a printie for a popcorn box, similar to the one I have here at home =)
And filled the bottom with styrofoam, this way you don't have to make millions of tiny pop corns ;) I painted my styrofoam with some soft pastel to make it match the rest of the pop corns.


Pop corn for everyone! Even the dolls!

The Pettersson family was gathered in front of the TV, just like us last night.
(You could almost believe I took a picture of my own family here; me, the bump, cute daughter, husband and the box with pop corn.)

Take care
Hannah

  7. Congrats to Sweden... luckily the German result is as interesting to me as a sack of rice falling down in China... ;O) Your mini popcorn turned out wonderful - great work! Thanks for showing how you've done it. And what a nice family portrait.

    1. Thanks Birgit! I was quite surprised by the German result, I thought the song was quite good.. But it's always harder for countries that goes directly to the final I think. I'm happy your world didn't fall apart by the result ;) The Swedish result won't effect me as mush either, but since I like the show it will be fun to see it air from Sweden next year =) (and there has been a few extra shows on TV now about Måns and the win, all of Sweden seem to be in a good mood right now ;) )
