Fake Burger

I made this burger out of Crayola’s Model Magic clay. It’s water based, light, very squishy, comes in many different colors, and hardens just by drying.  The bun, tomato, pickles, and onion are made of Model Magic, which were then painted with acrylic to add details. The patty is made from a paper mache substance called Cell-U-Clay that’s been painted. The lettuce is acrylic gloss medium mixed with acrylic paint, set out to dry in thin layers and then peeled off. The sauces are also made of gloss medium and paint. The inside piece was given a spray coat of gloss to make it shiny and wet looking. The sesame seeds are actually just sesame seeds.
