To Make a Miniature Haggis From Polymer Clay You Will Need:
- Small Amounts of Polymer Clay in dark brown, beige, white and translucent.
- Sharp Polymer Clay Blade or a single sided razor blade.
- Smooth Tile or Work Surface
- Clay Roller
- Baking tile or pan
- Fine Pin
Note: As the clay is not clearly visible through the casing, this is a good way to use up bits of waste or slightly discolored clay.
Make the Haggis Filling.
Start by rolling thin rolls of mixtures of all of your colors of polymer clay, blended and separate. You will need only tiny amounts of dark brown and white clays. Most of your rolls should be in mid tones, some with a fair amount of translucent clay mixed in. Let the clay rolls cool so that they are firm.
Lay the rolls out side by side and use your clay blade to chop or mince the rolls into tiny pieces, allowing the colors to blend as you chop them. Try to keep the clay from blending together as you mince it into tiny pieces. You want the colors to stay in tiny separate bits as shown in the photo above. If your blend appears to dark when it is still in larger pieces (see photo above) remove some of the darker sections and adjust the colors. Keep mincing your clay until you have a convincing blend of sausage style bits.
