Tiny Pie Class!
Conveniently, I noticed that Michaels has Premo on sale starting tomorrow- it's like they knew!
You can find the class webcast online, here, on Monday at 3.30 Eastern Time, and it will also be archived for a while.
If you're chomping at the bit to get started, a printed version of the recipe is online too, as part of Etsy's How Tuesday series, here. One change: Premo has reformulated their orange, and it's now really bright, almost neon. To make it look more like the dark orange of real pumpkin pie, mix in a small amount of raw sienna and yellow Premo to tone it down a bit.
raw sienna Premo
cadmium yellow Premo
translucent liquid sculpey or liquid clay
allspice (the real spice; very fine dark brown sand will also work)
raw sienna chalk artists pastel (you want one that looks orangey, like baked bread) & a scrap piece of paper
24 gauge headpins, 2" long, sterling silver or silver-plated brass (these are good ones for silver plated)
work surface: I prefer a smooth white floor tile, but parchment paper or a clean piece of glass will work too
small ball point tool (like this one) or straight pin with a rounded tip
small paintbrush for the liquid clay
paintbrush or eyeshadow applicator for the artists pastel
nail clippers or wire cutters
