31 Days of Halloween - Day 27 - Edible Zombie Morsels



Ahh!  It's day 27! That's right, and you are hopping onto the Smeared and Smudged Forum's 31 Days of Halloween Blog Hop! Yea!  I love all the wonderful projects that I'm seeing on my daily hops!  Take a bow, Wicked Bloggers!

Below are all the fabulous bloggers:


Now will come the making of the zombie candy! Muhuhuahahahhhh! No baking required, but you do need clean hands, warm pockets and fruit flavored Tootsie Rolls!
Materials:
Tootsie Roll Fruit Flavors - make sure the mix includes vanilla
Tootsie Rolls take a little time and moderate strength to condition, so the first rule of Tootsie Roll Sculpting is: 
Put the wrapped candies in your pockets for at least half and hour before conditioning it.
 Rule 2:
The Tootsie Roll will pretend it doesn't want to stick to itself at first. After a moment, you won't be able to separate it!
Condition them as you would polymer clay - smooshing and rolling them in your hands until they are soft enough to shape.
For a toe, you will need 2 green, a tiny piece of white, purple and pink.
Combine the 2 green and shape into a cylinder.
Flatten and widen one end.
Roll the purple and fatten it into a circle, place it on the toe and tear the end away to make a gross toenail.
Make a button shape with the white and push it in the back of the toe.
Roll a tiny piece of the pink and lay it around the white.
You can put some pink under the toenail if you like.
For an eyeball, you will need 2 white, 1 pink and a tiny bit of blue.
Combine the 2 white pieces and roll into a ball.
Twist all but a little of the pink to make the root and then roll small strings to to make veins.
Mix a tiny bit of white and blue together to make a hazy looking iris.
For the teeth I used 1 white mixed with 1/2 a yellow for the piece of bone, yellow for the teeth and a bit of pink for the little bit of gums.

The brain bit is a blue and white combined. Make a random lump and roll the rest into a long string to wind back and forth all over the lump.
And there you have it! Zombie Morsels! Oh, and the slogan is:
Zombie Morsels
When you care enough to send the very beast

  4. I have to say that it has never entered my mind to use candy as clay. You have so many good ideas and some that are a bit twisted - I always enjoy twisted!
