Start off with light brown and dark brown clay (the two colors shown in the picture above). Take a small amount of each and warm the clay up by rolling it out, squishing it, rolling it in a ball, etc.
Next, take the dark brown clay and roll it out like you would cover a cake. It has to be big enough to wrap around the length of the log. Do not roll it out too thin as it might tear, and it will not be visible as part of the toast after. About 1/16 of an inch or so is fine.
After you wrap it around the light brown log, and smooth it out so there are no air pockets. Cut off any excess. The light brown log should be visible on both ends.
Next, wherever that overlap was when you put the dark brown clay on, that will be one side of the dent for the "bread" shape, and the opposite side for the other.
Take a toothpick, and use the length to gently dent in the clay as shown in the picture. Do not apply too much pressure or you may end up with a squished toast.
Time to slice them up! Cut the loaf into toasts with a knife. Then attach wire to the tops to make them into charms.
Bake them in the oven according to your clay instructions. I did mine at 275 F for about 25 minutes. Remember, when they come out of the oven they will be very hot, so be careful.
@Loopy - the mouths and eyes don't go all the way through. I just painted them on after.
would you be able to use fimo instead of clay?
