Do you use this technique for all your different mini fruits?

Yes actually. For that particular fruit stand, I used oil paint for all of them. However, some of the base clay was the same color as the paint. Even if they were the same color, I still paint them a little bit because there will still be SOME variation in color. Some of the fruits, I just dabbed a little bit of color, not much, like the mangos for example, I believe I only put a few brown marks on them and then blended it out so the marks weren't harsh. Hope this helped! =]

This is really helpful!
Quick questions if you don't mind.
I just started using sculpey and I have no idea what I'm doing
What kind of paint is that?
And what kind of glaze do you use?

I used oil paint, but it takes a lot longer to dry than acrylic, so I would recommend using acrylic. I use the glaze from Sculpey. If you want, you can take a look at my beginner's guide to polymer clay here: [link]

For whatever reason, I never think to shade with real paints, just chalk pastels before they're baked. Those tiny strawberries look so real though...I think I'll need to give it a try. :D

Just remember, use veryyy little paint. You'd be surprised how much you can cover with just a tiny tiny tinnnny little drop of paint. =]

Daaww, Cute! I personly use powders though, i would fail at paint. With a powder I feely safer because it makes a natural gradient so if you mess up it's not noticable XD

I agree there, chalk pastel is definitely more forgiving =]

Yes, yes. Though it's true, if you have a steady hand (I get too nervous :/) and you like being VERY precise, paint would work

Great trick! I think it's good enough. This technique is one of the ones I use most, but I haven't seen any tutorial in DA on it. I'm sure it'll be helpful. ;)
