Sweet as Pie

Since moving to Japan, I must say I have been very disciplined with my spending.  It could easily get out of hand as everything here is so CUTE.

And the good thing about it was that it was under 600 円!

The contents of the package: instructions, eraser mold, 4 colours of clay

It’s really quite easy to make, just follow the instructions 🙂 For someone who can’t really read Japanese, I was able to get the gist of things and make it work

This is what the clay looks like

Spray the mold with water, take a piece of clay and place in mold, then press

Don’t forget to spray the mold with water before putting in the clay or it will stick!

Once you have your pieces, place them together by twisting/pushing them together.  Then place in the white cardboard container, add water and microwave

Perhaps I didn’t push the pieces together well enough because after it came out, it looked like this..

Then cool the eraser in some cold water…
