Barbie Grilled Ham Steak from Clay -Christmas in July

Barbie would like to remind everyone that ham isn't just for Christmas or Easter... It's fabulous on the grill! A nice big ham steak cooks up quickly and that tasty char makes everything taste better. Since I have a bunch of 1:6 scale grills, I thought we'd make a ham steak out of air dry clay. The best thing about this project, there is no right or wrong... We're just aiming for an abstract oval-ish pink shape with black/brown grill marks. And it looks like Barbie is as big a fan of hot sauce as I am:@) (Hot sauce from Mini Brands, did you know Series 3 is out?)

What I did:
Smooshed the clay together and tried to shape it into an oval, 
but also have it big enough to cover what was printed on the grill grates by Mattel.
Added a mini white pony bead to mimic the bone.
Scored some 'grill' lines across it.
Let that dry.
Added a little white paint to look like fat...
And used markers for the grill marks.

Grilling ham soon?
Here are a couple great ideas from my Happier Than A Pig In Mud Blog:
With a light coating of olive oil, nothing more, and Ham and Peach Kabobs with Bourbon Glaze.

Barbie says eat well, and have a happy day😉


  1. WOW! I am hungry just looking at it! I have never thought about ham for bbq but it looks like it works even for dolls! Thanks!

  2. Cool!!! (Or rather, hot!!! LOL!). The meat looks very realistic, well done! (pun intended). The real ham also looks yummy!


Thank you for stopping by!
