My daughter’s American Girl dolls were in need of some more food now that they have their own kitchen, so we decided to try making some fruit. I bought sculpy clay from the craft store and used yellow for the bananas, orange for the oranges and red and green for the apples.
To make the apples I rolled clay into balls and then squeezed the bottom to make them look like apples and using a pick tool I made a hole in the top of each one and cut tiny sticks to insert as the stems. I pressed the clay around the stems to close the hole.
For the oranges I rolled clay into balls and textured with aluminum foil all over to give that pebbled look and feel.
The bananas I shaped yellow into long tubes and curved them. Next I pressed the top and bottom to look like the ends of a real banana. For the bunch I added five together and pressed the stems together. I added a little bit of green clay and rubbed along the sides. Also I used a tad of brown paint on my finger to color the top and bottom tips and here and there to make them look ripe.
I tried to make grapes but wasn’t happy with them, so I will redo them another time.
Lastly I baked all the fruit at 275 degrees on a piece of aluminum foil for 45 minutes.
My daughter and her dolls adore their new food. We also used some tiny jewelry boxes as holders for her fruit to keep in the icebox.
My daughter really wished to have some real looking drinks for her dolls and so after searching the craft shops for what they use to make the fake water in some flower arrangements, I’ve made pink and regular lemonade.
Plastic shot glasses 2oz size
Coffee stirrers cut down to size
Plastic crystal vase fillers that look like ice cubes
Easy cast epoxy
Paint in the colors you wish
I mixed the epoxy carefully following the directions and when ready to pour into the glasses I added a few drops of yellow for the regular lemonade and a few pink drops for the pink lemonade. I then poured into the tiny glasses and added the pieces of faux ice and straw.
I poured different levels of the drink so it looks like one was drank more than the other.
The only bad thing was the three day wait for it to set. I think they turned out super cute and my daughter and her dolls do too.
