How to Make a miniature turkey for a dollhouse feast

Garden of Imagination demonstrates how to make a miniature turkey for a thanks giving feast in our doll house. First thing going to be done is to make the turkey. Premal's flesh tone clay is used to make the turkey, so that it will give the color of the meat. This is nice and hard. The clay is kneaded well and made into three balls. One is made in the shape and size of an egg, which is to be the body of the turkey. The front end is pushed on both sides and the back side is just slightly pushed. To make the legs of the turkey, the next ball of clay is rolled into a cylindrical shape and cut into half. Roll the halves into the shape of a turkey legs and fix it to the body of the turkey. Now the wings are made on both sides using very nice little piece of clay, rolled, flatten and bended. The legs and wings are glued to the body of the turkey using glue. Now the turkey is ready. Next thing done is giving shades, for this soft pastel set is used. Dark yellow is painted all over. On the top part of the legs, tips of the wings and the chest is darkened using brown color because in real when the turkey comes out off the oven it's like that. A platter is taken and turkey is placed in it. Some glue is put on the top. Now some fresh green moss is taken and sprinkled over this. Potatoes, carrots, celery and bread crumbs are made from matching colors of clays. A glass oven pan is taken and these are put in it and heated using an embossing gun to make it hard. These are sliced in round shape using a razor and put in the platter around the turkey. Now the glue is squeezed all around after loading the platter. Turkey is also picked up and glued so that it is fixed to the platter. Mix everything well with a tooth pick. The whole thing is baked for 30 minutes at about 250 degrees. It shouldn't burn so an eye should be kept on it. After taking out of the oven when it is completely cold triple-thick clear glaze is used to paint all over and the thanks giving turkey is all set.
