Started by making molds of all fruit needed. Then poured the needed Smooth-On product into the mold to make the cast of the fruit needed. Used Silk Pig to color the Smooth-On mixture.
Pie crust was made of salt doe so it wouldn't spoil and last for the longevity of the production's run. Each pie's base was carved out of upholstery foam and then Smooth-On Dragon Skin was poured on top to create the base's color and texture. After the fruit casts were glued onto the based, a layer of Dragon Skin was poured over top the whole pie to act as a sealant to secure all pieces to the base.
