gallery glass experiment

this is a totally off-scale pie. can you see why?
anyway, i used gallery glass for the 'jam' portion of this cherry pie, i quite like it! after it dried i sliced out a portion of the pie, and glossed the visible bits of jam/cherry.
few lessons i've learnt here:
- gallery glass bakes all fine after it's fully dried. i haven't tried it while it's wet and have no intention to, as i've read horrible things about baking stuff that -shouldn't- be baked (wet or otherwise)
- this is the ruby red gallery glass i used. it looks opaque in the bottle, but dries reasonably clear for such a thick layer.
- sticks reasonably well to polymer clay
- yes, if you guessed right, the cherries are offscale. this is because i simply wanted to experiment, and was going to bake a 1:12 scale pie and the cherries used here were for colour sampling before i roll out larger batches of cherries
my half-scale pie pan and plates/dishes experiments. i would say the pie pans were moderately successful in that i baked all my half-scale pies in these, but not so much for the dishes as you can probably see why. the colour darkened pretty noticeably after baking, and at this scale is a little too flimsy. i might just decorate them a little more or bake another pie into them. but i doubt it. these seem destined for the bin.
'normal' pie pan pumpkin pie, sliced. as you can tell, all the pies featured so far are half-scale. they are approximately 1.1cm in diameter. :O that's approximately 3/8 of an inch! (IRL should be 9" diameter?)
i tried so hard to duplicate my previous attempt at the soft-serve icecream to no avail. :( but! i persevered and came up with a variation using my leftover experiment batch of piped 'meringues'...
see the difference? which do you prefer?
ok it's late, i had a long day out and am pooped. i actually have quite a few considerations running through my mind, so i'd better get some rest or i won't be able to make 'proper' decisions......
please comment! i love and appreciate all comments/feedback, unless of course you are a spammer. then may cockroaches infest your innards, you slave of an idle mind.
