Hi everyone! This is my entry to Clay Art Contest #5. It's my first time to participate in this contest and I'm glad that this week it's all about food! (I looooooove food) Honestly, I can't remember the last time I touched clay. And because of this contest, I realized it's really fun and therapeutical! Thanks @josejirafa for hosting such! I think I will continue joining from now on. :)
The theme for Clay Art Contest #5 is: Your favorite snack. I didn't even think twice of what to make.
| Pinoy Street Food |
From top to bottom: Kwek kwek, hotdog on stick, squidballs, isaw
Surely, if you're Filipino, you're already familiar with each street food.
If you're not, you probably have no idea what isaw and kwek kwek are. So here's a brief description:
| ISAW |
Chicken or pig intestines, grilled over hot fire or fried (with flour). Best eaten when dipped in chili onion vinegar.
Price: Usually PHP 5.00
| KWEK KWEK |
Quail eggs coated in an orange colored batter, and deep fried. Also best eaten with chili onion vinegar or specialty sauce.
Price: Usually PHP 3.00
● Best Buy Modelling Clay
PHP 40, National Book Store
● Walis Tingting
Free, borrowed from dorm mate
- For today's work, I mainly used orange, white and red modelling clay. For isaw and kwek kwek, mix orange and white because these shouldn't be too orange.
- Roll the clay until the food shapes are achieved. For ball-shaped food ( if you have limited clay like me), use a color that you wouldn't need and just wrap a small amount of the actual color around it.
- For the hotdog, lightly slice the red clay just as you would do to a real hotdog. I experimented and added small 'burnt' marks using black clay. (I wished I'd also done it with the others).
- Put on stick once done. For this part, I used walis tingting because WHY NOT? It’s accessible, thin (perfect for miniature) and free!
Sad to say, I don't have the step by step photos for my work because after I opened the box, I got too excited and did not stop until it's done. But I don't think you'll need them anyway because this is very easy to make! You just gotta keep rollin' that clay!
This is my first ever ART contest here on Steemit and I'm looking forward to improve with every try. :)
Thanks for your time!
