So I am part of the RNEST network which stands for the (Rochester NY Etsy Street Team). This group of Crafters and Etsy shop owners does monthly challenges and other fun creative projects to keep people motivated and looking to create,craft and post on the internet etsy shop walls.
The team took a believe it or not Rochester food favorite called "The Garbage Plate" and created their own version of it. Several local late night and small independently owned restaurants serve their own version of a garbage plate and people do really eat a lot of them. A Garbage plate consists of macaroni salad with egg in it, hamburger or hotdog patties, Potatoes or fries, a gravy sauce or ketchup and mustard and a hunk of bread.
Their is also a soda can which is not shown here... This weekend it was raffled off to a lucky RNEST craft show attendee.

Below is my step by step tutorial to the making of the garbage plate ketchup and mustard packets.
Step 3 fill in middle section of aluminum foil with smoothed out parts of polymer clay
Step 4 Roll out white polymer clay and put on layer on either side of aluminum foil
step 5 Use a dental tool to put texture on the ends. use a sculpey knife to cut of uneven edges
Step 6 Smooth out the "package" with fingers
Step 7 Bake in the oven at 275 degree for approx 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool
Step 8 When cool use wet dry sanding block to sand the folds and creases etc. out of clay
Step 9 Use caulk to fill in uneven areas
Step 10 Cut the paper logos out and Use Elmers white glue and glue the logos for ketchup and mustard onto the polymer clay. use some glue on top to help seal the image.Let dry.
