So cute, it rots your teeth

Monthly Food Challenge

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 3, 2014, 11:05 AM
Monthly Food Challenge
A three month premium membership will be awarded to one of the semi-sweeties members that participate in the challenge.

We have been running these challenges for three years now, we have to keep them challenging! So this time we’re shaking things a little: instead of randomly picking a winner from the participant pool, we’re going to pick the entry that makes the most creative use of the theme. Even if your crafting skills aren’t the best, but you had a great idea and were able to transmit it, you have a chance to win the 3 months subscription!

Theme of the month: Berries

For those of us in the northern hemisphere summer is almost here, the fruits are ripping all around! And if you’re in the southern hemisphere, you probably miss the colorful look of a meadow full of berries, so we hope this challenge will please everyone ;)

This month we’re asking you to craft something made out of berries, what kind of berries is entirely up to you. Are you a fan of strawberries? Blueberries? Blackberries? Raspberries? Cranberries? You only have two limitations: it has to be handmade out of clay and it must contain berries! Any edible fruit (real or fictitious) that includes “berry” is eligible.

**If any of these rules are ignored, you will be disqualified from winning the prize**
  • Participants have to be members of semi-sweeties
  • Submissions must be entirely made by you (no bought canes or molds).
  • Only new work is accepted, submitted to DA between June 1st and 30th.
  • Items must be primarily made of clay (polymer clay, cold porcelain, air dry clay, etc - but NO silicon or resin).
  • If a tutorial was used, the source must be credited.
  • You must write somewhere in the artist comment box that this is an entry for #semi-sweeties' monthly challenge + add a link to this journal.
  • Submit entries into the "Monthly Food Challenge" folder.

The challenge closes on June 30th and the 3 month sub winner will awarded to one semi-sweeties member that in our opinion, made the most creative use of the team.

It's Talty who is taking care of all things Contest, but she has been pretty busy lately.
I will write to her and see what's going on.

Does the food have to be big or small?
Talty Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2014   Artisan Crafter
Any scale is fine! :D as long as it's food and clay, we love it!

What if the cake is made out of mod rock, is that okay? 
Talty Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2014   Artisan Crafter
I had to look up what's modrock, from what I understand it's a composite material with plaster of paris and bandages, is that correct? It's not exactly cake and it's molded differently, it isn't sculpted in the same sense clay is. So I would say it's not acceptable here.

I was told to "please submit to the cookies gallery" my heart shaped chocolate chip cookies by "Talty" but I don't know why I was told to because they're still the third display picture. Was that message sent by mistake?
