Clam Chowder

This weekend has been incredibly hot, so naturally I thought it would be perfect to make clam chowder bread bowls.  Good thing it was actually miniature chowder!  I first started to sculpt the round loaf and then cut the top off just like you would when making the real bread bowl.  Then I made the chowder with chunks of white and beige clay (potato and clams) mixed with TLS and sprinkled with a bit of brown and green clay shavings.  Finally I topped it off with a few bacon bits and baked them.

The clam chowder bread bowls was a fairly fast project, so I decided to also make a few cutting boards.
I got a long piece of wood from craft store and cut it up and sanded the edges.  Then I used watered down acrylic paint to give the wood a stain.  Next time I'll tray making different shaped boards.

Tip: Don't put too much water on the wood, it will warp the wood as it dries.

Hope you all had a great weekend! :)
