How To Make Miniature Tropical Fruits & Melons (Polymer Clay) - Cantaloupe, Honey Dew, Watermelon, & Papaya




I realized that my most viewed video (currently) is about fruit, so as a treat I decided to expand on that idea and create some new pieces!

I made all of the fruits with polymer clay, acrylic paint, triple thick glaze, and chalk pastels.

The fruit salad that sits in the watermelon bowl is a mixture of clay chunks, left over strawberries from my Strawberry Shortcake video, and canes (which I have already made tutorials for).

Watch the tutorial to see all of the colors I used :)

Reese's Ice Cream Sundae - Miniature Polymer Clay & Air Dry Clay Tutorial




I decided to make a ton of "candy" sundaes from Baskin Robbins.. All in miniature of course! :) 
 
The Reese's sundae above is my favorite, mostly because I love Reese's so much!
 
ICE CREAM: I mixed, or rather swirled in tan and brown clay with white clay to make the Reese's Ice Cream. It's very simple, and it's a perfect excuse to use your scrap clay!

NOTE: It's best to use Air Dry Clay when making these because the cups are plastic. If you use polymer clay, back the ingredients (ice cream, candy, and whipped cream) beforehand. 

SAUCE: I mixed Modge Podge Dimensional Magic together with yellow ochre (and a tiny amount of dark brown paint, but this is optional) acrylic paint to make the peanut butter sauce. The Dimensional magic doesn't need to be baked because it dries hard on it's own in about 2-3 hours.

CUPS: The ice cream cups are simply communion cups that you can find at a local Christian Bookstore or online. You can also use plastic shot glasses (Party City has tons), or mini plastic cups (Found some of those are Dollar Tree).

I hope you try it out & Have Fun!!
XOXO,
Toni

Miniature Oreo Sundae - Baskin Robbins Tutorial




I decided to make a ton of "candy" sundaes from Baskin Robbins.. All in miniature of course! :) 

I made 4 in total, and decided not to make them all into videos because the look very similar (lots of browns, yellows, etc)

The Oreo sundae will be the first, and then 2 more videos will follow.

NOTE: It's best to use Air Dry Clay when making these because the cups are plastic. If you use polymer clay, back the ingredients (ice cream, cookies, and whipped cream) beforehand. The Dimensional magic used for the sauce doesn't need to be baked because it dries hard on it's own in about 2-3 hours.

CUPS: The ice cream cups are simply communion cups that you can find at a local Christian Bookstore or online. You can also use plastic shot glasses (Party City has tons), or mini plastic cups (Found some of those are Dollar Tree).

I hope you try it out & Have Fun!!

Krispy Kreme Doughnuts & Coffee : Miniature Polymer Clay Food Tutorial




I used to live in Atlanta, and the Krispy Kreme on Ponce was my favorite! They're open all night (and right around the corner) so when I'd be up at 2am.. I would be there! They have tons of great flavors but nothing beats their glazed doughnuts. Second to glazed, in my opinion is the chocolate iced custard filled,  or their new caramel pretzel doughnuts! NOM NOM NOM!

In the video, I'll be showing you how to make miniature Krispy Kreme treats! You can turn these into charms to wear, or make them for your dolls!

The doughnuts were made with equal parts of tan, white, and translucent polymer clay. I used a paintbrush tip to make the holes in the center, and chalk pastels to (color) make the doughnuts look like they were fried.

The glaze is a mixture of white chalk pastels and Modge Podge dimensional magic. Be sure to pop any bubbles as they won't pop on their own :)

If you have any questions please let me know in the comments below!

Have Fun, and celebrate Krispy Kreme by making your own!
XOXO,

Subway Sandwiches : How To Make Miniature Subway Sandwiches with Polymer Clay



The sandwiches were made with polymer clay, and the sauces & drinks were made with a mixture of acrylic paint and dimensional magic.

When printing the above templates, copy and paste them into a word document. Then re-size the individual templates to make them smaller :) You may have to try different sizes to find one that works for you, but using the rulers in the word document to estimate the size makes it easier.

If you have a question, please leave it as a comment below!  :)

Have fun!! 
XOXO,
Toni
