Fimo - terra cotta, orange, transparent, ochre, leaf green
Polymer Compound Resin (2-part kit such as Envirotex-lite)
Amber Transparent Dye
Paper Cup, Stirring Stick, Toothpicks
Note: The amount of meat and vegetables to make must be judged by you, depending on the size of the cooking pot or how many pots you make at one time. Remember that a "false bottom" of Fimo may be pressed into your pot, lessening the amount of ingredients needed.
Ingredients are made as follows - place into baking pan to bake all at once at 250 degrees for 10 minutes.
Cubes of beef - Roll a thin snake of terra cotta Fimo about 1/8 inch in diameter. With X-acto Knife, cut cubes lightly on a diagonal and texture with the tip of the knife or fingernails.
Carrots - Using orange Fimo - roll a thin snake about 1/8 inch in diameter. With X-acto-Knife, slice on diagonal.
Onions - Using transparent Fimo, roll tiny balls about 3/16 inch in diameter.
Potatoes - Knead together transparent Fimo with just a touch of ochre Fimo. Roll irregular-shaped balls about 3/16 inch in diameter.
Beans - Using leaf green Fimo, roll a snake about the diameter of a pencil head. Slice with X-acto-knife.
Bake all ingredients as instructed above. Remove from oven and let cool.
Put false bottom in miniature pot by pressing a bit of polymer clay into pot until about 1/3 full.
Using polymer compound resin (2-bottle kit), pour a small amount of 1 part resin to 1 part catalyst into a paper cup. Add just a touch of amber transparent dye and stir thoroughly.
Drizzle some of the catalyzed resin into the pot while alternately sprinkling in the "ingredients". Add more resin as necessary and arrange all with a toothpick. Let harden undisturbed overnight.
