The “Coop Crew” is at it again! Lisa from http://fresheggsdaily.com/, Michelle from https://lemonbaydoll.com/, and myself – Brandy from http://brandyshappyhome.com/ is joined by Kit in the doll kitchen today to learn how to make Lisa’s famous Herbed Deviled Eggs. Actually, I am going to show you how to make doll sized deviled eggs from polymer clay by using silicone molds. In keeping with our Chicken Themed Week of crafts I thought deviled eggs would make the perfect doll food for this event! These particular doll deviled eggs were inspired by one of Lisa’s recipes that you can find on her blog here: http://fresheggsdaily.com/2012/06/easy-herbed-deviled-eggs-three-ways-fun.html .
Kit is out collecting eggs to take to the “Coop Crew” kitchen. This amazing doll sized chicken coop, hens, and Kit’s Feed Sack Dress & Apron can be purchased from the Lemon Bay Doll Company.
Kit did a great job at collecting eggs. It’s time to get started on the deviled eggs!
For the egg whites I used Amazing Mold Putty. This was purchased at Michaels. I always use coupons for my clay craft supplies. You will be able to make numerous molds from this one purchase. A little goes a long way.
I wanted the deviled eggs to be the same size as the wood eggs that come with the coop accessories set that is from the Lemon Bay Doll Company. I used a pencil and drew a line around the egg to make it in half.
Time to create the egg white mold:
- Take equal parts from bottles 1 and 2. Work together until soft and pliable.
- Work together the two parts into one ball.
- Flatten ball. Try to get top smooth and flat.
- Take egg and depress into mold until it reaches your pencil marking.
- Let set for at least 20 min. I let my mold sit for 2 hours. Remove wood egg. Mold is now usable.
I used white Sculpey III polymer clay. Take a small piece and press into mold. Do not overfill or you will get a ring around the top edge. Try to keep the top of egg as flat and level as possible. This mold is flexible. Pop out clay egg. Make as many as needed. I baked 15 eggs at 275 degrees for 12 minutes. I did use a very fine sand paper to smooth out any irregular rough edges.
The mold for the egg yolk filling was purchased from: https://www.etsy.com/listing/241131546/frosting-dollop-mold-embellishment?ref=shop_home_active_4 . This is a mold made from liquid silicone. I loved working with this mold! Molds are great to work with when you need to make a lot of one item.
I used Sculpey III polymer clay in the color lemonade. I mixed the clay with real dried dill weed herbs. Clay was pressed into the mold. Again, try to keep the top flat and level. This mold is flexible. Simply pop out the clay mold. Numerous dollops could be made in a very short amount of time. My kids and I had a lot of fun making these.
Since eggs have a wet appearance I used a gloss sealer spray over the whites. I used a satin sealer, Mod Podge, over the yolk fillings. Once sealers were dry I glued together with an epoxy glue. I like Aleene’s Glass and Bead Glue.
One of the great things about doing your own diy doll food is that you have extra supplies to help create the scene. My daughters wanted a little clay for a bowl and spoon.
We also recycled a mini bottle that had nail glitter in it and filled it with dried dill weed.
These eggs turned out super cute and are the perfect size for little doll hands! Thanks for joining the “Coop Crew!” Come back tomorrow to see how to make a to-go deviled egg carrier!
Craft on! Brandy
