Macaron tutorial

 

 

Macarons
Macarons molds are now available in my Etsy store. Make your own super cute macarons. Its very easy to make and so addictive.
I have made a quick tutorial that shows how I make my macarons. See step by step below.

You will need:
A flexible mold that withstand the heat from oven. Buy it here: Macaron mold
You will also need some polymer clay. Colors like white, red and green are good choices. You will also need translucent clay.
A sharp blade, a tile to bake on and an oven.

Mix the clay approximately 60% white and 38% translucent and 2% red or green.
Put the clay in the mold. Press clay inside. Cut away the excess clay with a sharpe blade.
Carefully remove the macaron out of the mold. Take a small needle and make some holes around the macaron just to make it look a bit more authentic.
Make several of these and bake them flat on a tile for ten minutes.

Use the clay for macaron base and add extra white and translucent to make it a lighter shade for the filling. You can also make the filling in a stronger color but then you need to add more of the base color and some translucent.
Put a small amount as seen in photo on one side of the macaron. Flat it a bit with your finger an then take the other half and press it together. Bake it for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Simple, and very effective.
